The burial of the late former president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, has been postponed indefinitely.

The burial was earlier scheduled to hold on Sunday in Zimbabwe but is not likely to hold again, according to ZimLive.

Family members of the deceased ex-president confirmed the development toZimlive.

According to Mugabe’s nephew, Leo Mugabe, who is also the family’s spokesman, Mugabe was a chief and he would be given a traditional burial.

He said, “Mugabe was a chief and he will be buried in accordance with tradition. The chiefs have not told us where he will be buried, so it is not clear yet. I also don’t know,” he said.

It was reported that in some parts of Zimbabwe, burials of chiefs are a secret affair and people are only told the resting place afterward.

Mugabe died on Friday at the age of 95 in Singapore, where he was receiving medical treatment.

Mugabe’s body is expected back in Zimbabwe on Wednesday.
