    > "Such an icon, one whose funeral service is going to be attended by almost 50 current and former heads of state. Such a founding father of this country, there should never be a discussion about that. There should never be any conflict whatsoever. The decision should be clear, he should go to the national shrine," he told the BBC. In a statement, the Mugabe family said it was extremely concerned over the way the authorities had made funeral plans "Without consulting his immediate family who were tasked with communicating his last wishes in regard to his funeral and burial".

    > Mr Mugabe fired Mr Mnangagwa in 2017, in what many believed was a way to prepare for Mrs Mugabe to succeed him.
