Zimbabwe Independent editor Dumisani Muleya explains why Zimbabwe's late president was only buried over the weekend.

Zimbabwe's former president, Robert Mugabe was buried in his rural village of Kutama on Saturday.

Mugabe died in a Singapore hospital at age 95 almost two years after a military coup ended his despotic 37-year rule on 6 September.

Muleya says the family had been battling with the government as an extension of the coup that removed Mugabe in November 2017.
