The late former President of Zimbabwe, Robert Gabriel Mugabe received some love and likes when his remains arrived at Robert Mugabe International Airport where hundreds gathered to welcome him home.
Mugabe, toppled from power in November 2017 after a military intervention, received a hero’s welcome which he last got before the new dispensation.
During his rule, Mugabe used to be welcomed by Mbare Chimurenga choir whenever he traveled outside Zimbabwe.
The scenes at Robert Mugabe International Airport gave his supporters an opportunity to praise their leader once again.
“He championed the land reform program and the land is now in the hands of black Zimbabweans, he is a hero and champion,” a Mbare Chimurenga Choir member said.
A woman identified as Mai Mabhonzo from Mbare Chimurenga Choir wept as she showered praises to the late Mugabe.
“We have lost a father, a unifier, someone who listened to us as his children, we owe him, our father,” said Mai Mabhonzo in tears.
Surprisingly some of the people who marched against Mugabe when he was toppled from power were also in attendance in show of support of the fallen veteran leader.
People who attended his arrival actually forgot the songs they sang against Mugabe in November 2017.
Songs like VaMugabe Igamba, VaMugabe Inhume were also sang and one could easily be fooled into forgetting that the same songs were no longer fashionable after the November 2017 incidents.
Vehicles with Mugabe’s famous signature once again rolled along the airport road as they whisked away members of the first family.
