Thousands of people are expected to turn out again on Friday for the viewing of the former Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe, who died last Friday at the age of 95.

His body will be lying in state at the Rufaro Stadium in Harare – where Mugabe took his first oath of office as Prime Minister in 1980. His wife, Grace, and other family members are also expected to make their way to the stadium.

The Mugabe family has requested for a private funeral for the late former President – at a date and venue yet to be announced.
