A plane carrying a delegation of government officials and Robert Mugabe's has left Zimbabwe for Singapore Monday to retrieve the body of the ex-president for his burial, a family spokesman said.

A charter flight left Harare at nine am (0700 GMT) on Monday with family and senior party members and was expected to return with Mugabe's body on Wednesday at 1300 GMT, the nephew and family spokesman Leo Mugabe told AFP.

It will then be taken to his rural home in Zvimba, and on to the National Sports Stadium in Harare for Zimbabweans to pay their last respects.

Former President Mugabe died in Singapore after battling ill-health for some time.

Chris Sambo, a former soccer administrator who used to arrange matches for Mugabe in Kutama, said the southern African country's Catholic community had lost one of its most important members.

The plane carried Vice President Kembo Mohadi and Mugabe's relatives.

"I will always remember the huge, immense contribution he made not only to the people of Zimbabwe but to the people of Africa", he said.

Leo Mugabe told reporters that Mugabe had died "a very bitter man" because he felt betrayed by the former political and military leaders who were his allies for close to four decades before they forced him to resign in November, 2017.

Apple said it was already in the process of patching the problem when Google notified it about the vulnerabilities. With neither Apple nor Google backing down, the situation has turned into a he said, she said situation.

She said Mugabe will be buried on Sunday but she did not say where, prompting speculation that there is a disagreement between Mugabe's family and the government over his resting place.

In one of the rooms, village elders and clan chiefs were deciding where the statesman should be buried.

Mugabe's family is at loggerheads with the Zimbabwean government over where he should be buried.

Most of Zimbabwe's national heroes - those who fought against white-minority rule - are buried at the Heroes' Acre shrine just outside Harare.

"So, it's not an issue that the former President says he does not want to be buried here". He was once revered and celebrated as an independence hero when he came into power in 1980.

In the memo, the ministry said Heads of State and Government wishing to attend the state funeral service on Saturday should arrive in Harare on Friday.

"If a chief dies, the announcement is not like how we announce any other person who is dead".
