Mourners gather at Blue Roof to pay last respects to late President Robert Mugabe

The body of Zimbabwe’s founding father, Robert Mugabe, which arrived in the country Wednesday afternoon, lay in state at his Blue Roof Residence in Borrowdale Brooke, Harare.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa, the First Lady, Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa, Vice President Kembo Mohadi, Cabinet Ministers, Provincial Ministers, Amai Grace Mugabe and family members accompanied the body to the residence.

Earlier, President Mnangagwa addressed mourners, who turned in their numbers to receive the body of the revolutionary icon at the Robert Mugabe International Airport and urged Zimbabweans to remain peaceful, loving and united.

From the airport, the body of the Pan-Africanist par excellence, was taken to One Commando Barracks in Harare, where members of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) had the opportunity to pay tribute to their former Commander-In-Chief.

Mugabe died on Friday last week in Singapore, where he was undergoing his routine treatment.
