The Standard, a privately-owned Sunday newspaper in Zimbabwe, reported on Sunday that the government had used the Blue Roof as leverage to force the family to concede to their demands of having Mugabe buried at the National Heroes Acre in Harare.

A memorial service in his honour is set to take place at the national stadium in Harare, this after the 95-year-old died in a Singaporean hospital last week.

In a series of announcements throughout the week they divulged details of where, when and how Mugabe would be buried.

Mugabe, who was declared a national hero at the announcement of his death, will be buried in about 30 days at the National Heroes' Acre.

Asked if the former First Lady was planning to go into exile, Robert Mugabe's nephew Leo Mugabe said: "She is Zimbabwean, she has no reason to go anywhere". On Sunday there will be a state ceremony with a 21-gun salute but the actual burial will occur several days later, he said. He was looked after by domestic workers who had no medical training; these are the people who were assisting Mrs Mugabe to look after her husband.

The health of Mugabe degraded over the years.

"Zimbabwe will forever cherish the overwhelming show of sympathy from our brothers and sisters at this moment of grief and their acknowledgment of the sacrifices of the late Cde Mugabe in dismantling colonialism in its various manifestations, not only in Zimbabwe but beyond. I don't have fuel", a Harare resident told AFP.

Taiwan severs ties with the Solomons
China's Foreign Ministry did not immediately comment on Monday, nor did the most authoritative state mouthpieces. The Pacific Island nation is the latest to leave the dwindling Taiwan camp.

Mugabe primarily was identified as the Marxist and Leninist who successfully led his party ZANU-PF and served the nation from executive office for almost four decades. She launched a series of public attacks on then-Vice President Joice Mujuru that led to Mujuru being sacked in 2014.

Zimbabwe's government has, according to media reports in that country, been dismissive of most of the exiled ministers, including Zhuwao, saying they are being opportunistic and trying to peddle an anti-Mnangagwa narrative.

The prospect of Grace Mugabe gaining so much power, especially as Mugabe was becoming visibly feeble, prompted the military to put the couple under house arrest.

Mugabe initially refused to resign. They allegedly accused Mugabe's widow Grace of orchestrating the fallout with Mnangagwa.

"That stuff about traditional leaders making the decision is rubbish".

"In Shona they say wafa wanaka (speak no ill of the dead), but for Mugabe there just has to be an exception", wrote journalist Bridget Mananavire in the Zimbabwe Independent. Mnangagwa also claimed that his name will always be remembered and his contribution shall never be forgotten.

"The whole narrative of the ruling class is the same. Nothing has happened to the mansions, the properties, the state allowances". There is hypocrisy and looting. "Maybe in a year we will see Grace in bed with Mnangagwa, politically, if not literally", he said.
