Early Wednesday a hearse transporting Mugabe's body left a Singapore funeral parlour bound for an airport and accompanied by a police escort, driving past a group of waiting journalists.

HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) - The body of Zimbabwe's longtime ruler Robert Mugabe has arrived in the capital, Harare, where it was met by President Emmerson Mnangagwa and a full military delegation.

Mugabe's funeral is expected to take place on Sunday.

Speaking during a post cabinet press briefing Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said Mugabe's body will arrive in the country on Wednesday afternoon and the details of his burial will be advised in due course.

A convoy of 4x4 vehicles with number plates bearing the letters "RG Mugabe" and the former leader's signature was also on the runway. According to the source, the family wanted Mugabe to be buried in Zvimba, his rural home where a decision will be made if he is to be buried at the Kutama Roman Catholic Cemetery where his mother, Bona was buried.

It said: "Notwithstanding our legendary differences with Mr Mugabe, we have no reason to exhibit barbarity by hosting a national festivity during his funeral".

It added that the rapid and worrisome increase has prompted a Congressional hearing on the matter, scheduled for later this month. According to the CDC, some patients reported symptoms developing only over a few days and others developed over several weeks.

Mnangagwa said the body will be taken to nearby military barracks for prayers before going Wednesday evening to the family's home in the posh Borrowdale suburb.

His family and Mnangagwa's government are apparently at odds over whether it would be at his homestead northwest of Harare or at a shrine for liberation heroes in the capital.

On Thursday and Friday the body will lie in state at Rufaro Stadium in Mbare township in Harare - where Mugabe took his oath of office - for the public to pay their final respects.

Mugabe's wife, Grace, and the Zimbabwean vice-president Kembo Mohadi were among those accompanying the body on the plane, according to Leo Mugabe, a nephew and family spokesman. Robert Mugabe was called everything from a liberator to a tyrant. "They (witches/ wizards) are also allowed to mourn a fellow neighbour and console the bereaved family", Muoni said.

President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe looks up as he attends the opening ceremony of the High Level Segment of The United Nations Climate Change Conference on December 15, 2009 in Copenhagen, Denmark. He added the sentiments were emanating from quarters bent on fomenting divisions within the ruling Zanu-PF in a bid to achieve regime change. "We should be wary of our adversaries as the war is still on", he said. Mugabe was not ideal as he was human and bound to err. "We went to thank him yesterday for what he has done this far".
