ZIMBABWE: Former President Mugabe “arrives” back home today
People are gathering at the airport in Zimbabwe’s capital, Harare, for the arrival of the plane from Singapore carrying the body of the country’s former President, Robert Mugabe.
The government has shared this video from the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport:
Mr Mugabe, who was 95 when he died last week, had been receiving hospital treatment in Singapore.
Mourners were beating drums on one side and there was a church choir on the other, reports the BBC’s Shingai Nyoka.
The former president’s body will be accompanied by his wife Grace and other family members.
His remains will lie in state for two days to allow the public to pay their respects.
