'Still no clarity on where Robert Mugabe will be buried'
Former Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe is lying in state at his Blue Roof mansion in Harare, Zimbabwe.
Mugabe’s remains were returned on Wednesday from Singapore where he died almost a week ago.
His body was taken to the Zimbabwean army barracks for a brief period before being transported to his home.
Eyewitness News reporter Clement Manyathela says upon arriving in Harare on Tuesday, it was business as usual for many citizens.
