  • La dépouille de Mugabe en route pour le Zimbabwe

Le corps de l'ancien président du Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, a quitté Singapour, où il est mort la semaine dernière, pour être enterré dans son pays natal.

Sa dépouille a été rapatriée en grande pompe mercredi à Harare pour plusieurs jours d'hommages, dont des funérailles nationales samedi dans l'immense stade national des sports de la capitale en présence de la plupart des chefs d'État africains.

Les rencontres entre le gouvernement et sa famille n'ont jusqu'à présent pas permis de résoudre la question en suspens de savoir où il sera enterré.

Le lieu de son enterrement fait l'objet de vifs tiraillements entre sa famille et le gouvernement, en conflit depuis le coup de force de l'armée qui a mis un terme en novembre 2017 au trente-sept ans de pouvoir de Robert Mugabe.

Jeudi après-midi, le corps doit être conduit dans le village de Zvimba, à une centaine de kilomètres de la capitale, où l'ex-président possédait une maison.

"Le différend sur la place publique, le président Emmerson Mnangagwa a tenté d'arrondir les angles". "Mais la famille aura le dernier mot", a-t-il promis après avoir salué la dépouille de son prédécesseur dans sa luxueuse résidence du " Toit bleu ". Soutenue par une frange du parti au pouvoir, l'ex-première dame convoitait alors ouvertement la succession de son nonagénaire de mari.

Mais l'entourage de Robert Mugabe et les chefs traditionnels s'y opposent, qui plaident que le défunt avait exprimé le voeu d'être inhumé dans le village de Zvimba, où il possédait une maison. "Ils n'auraient dû pas le poignarder dans le dos", a ajouté la septuagénaire.

" L'affaire " de l'enterrement était jeudi dans tous les esprits.

Mais l'ancien homme fort reste aussi controversé dans sa mort qu'il l'était de son vivant.

" Nous avions des différences, mais au-delà de ces différences politiques nous devons reconnaître sa contribution", a déclaré le président du Mouvement pour un changement démocratique (MDC), en souhaitant " un départ décent et apaisé ".

Par son statut de "héros national", Robert Mugabe devrait être inhumé au coeur du "Champ des héros de la Nation", un monument construit en lisière de la capitale pour accueillir les "combattants de la guerre de libération" les plus illustres.

Jeudi et vendredi, le cercueil de Robert Mugabe sera exposé au stade Rufaro, dans la banlieue de Harare, pour permettre à la population de tout le pays de rendre hommage "à l'illustre héros de la guerre de libération", selon Mme Mutsvangwa.

C'est dans ce même stade que Robert Mugabe avait, le 18 avril 1980, pris les rênes de l'ancienne Rhodésie sous domination blanche des mains de son ancien dirigeant blanc, Ian Smith.
