Mugabe's family wants the body preserved until then.

“It's a mourning period it depends on where you come from, some have seven days, 14 days others have 40 days mourning period. What I know is people will have to disperse and then the family will reconverge. Because we can't be sitting here for 30 days once they've come up with a date then everybody will know,” said family spokesperson, Leo Mugabe.
