Mugabe died on September 6, 2019, two years after being deposed by his former deputy, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, following a military-assisted coup in November 2017.

In a monumental decision, the Mugabe statue set for erection as this will create a long lasting history for the coming generation.

A Government Gazette General Notice 310 of 2024 reads: “National Museums and Monuments of Zimbabwe is pleased to invite expressions of interest from fine artists to produce a life-size statue of the late former President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, RG Mugabe to be installed at the RG Mugabe International Airport.”

Mugabe was, however, buried at his rural home in Zvimba, despite efforts by both Zanu PF and government to have him interred at the National Heroes Acre.
