The body of Zimbabwe’s longtime ruler Robert Mugabe has arrived in the capital, Harare, where it was met by President Emmerson Mnangagwa and a full military delegation.
Widow Grace Mugabe, dressed in black and with a black veil, was seated at a podium on the tarmac.
Mr Mugabe’s body will be displayed at historic locations for several days before burial at a location still unannounced.
That indicates friction between the ex-leader’s family and the government.
Mr Mugabe, who died at 95 in a Singapore hospital on Friday, was a guerrilla leader who led the fight to end white-minority rule in what was then Rhodesia, and ruled Zimbabwe from its independence in 1980 until he was deposed in 2017.
During his 37-year authoritarian leadership Zimbabwe descended from prosperity to economic crisis.
