According to his eldest nephew, Leo Mugabe, who played a major role during his prolonged burial drama, the coffin which brought his embalmed body to Harare from Singapore had to be changed over security concerns.

“People really are after his body or his body parts, so we wanted something that is tamper-proof. That is why the casket was changed”, he disclosed.

Concrete was laid around Mugabe’s tomb after the steel coffin was lowered in it.
