Mugabe’s body lies in state at Harare sports stadium

The body of former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe lay in state at a Harare soccer stadium. The former leader who ruled Zimbabwe for 37 years until he was ousted by his own army in November 2017, died in a Singapore hospital six days ago aged 95. A few thousand people, mostly supporters in ZANU-PF T-shirts, cheered and danced as his coffin arrived at Rufaro Stadium – the same venue where he took his first oath at independence in 1980. Mugabe presided over an economy wrecked by hyperinflation, shortages and deeply entrenched corruption, and a raging political rivalry between the country’s two largest political parties, ZANU-PF and the opposition Movement for Democratic Change.
