THE people in Zimbabwe are really happy Robert Mugabe has resigned as president.

But for some it wasn’t enough that the 93-year-old just gave up his iron-fisted rule.

They wanted the old man dead and buried too!

A video has surfaced showing fake mourners attending a mock funeral where Uncle Bob is sent off in style.

Mourners are seen around a box with Mugabe’s images pasted on it, as if viewing the body as you would at a funeral.

Others danced around the small casket that had a cross on it, waving goodbye to Mugabe.

And for good measure, a few are even seen having fits around the casket on the ground in what seems to be a busy street in Harare.

Zimbabweans have now literally buried Mugabe on social media, where memes of him and his fall from grace have been multiplying.

Meanwhile, the incoming administration of Emmerson Mnangagwa has been asked to uphold the rights of government officials detained by the military during Mugabe’s ousting.

Mnangagwa is expected to be sworn in as president at an inauguration ceremony today.

Mugabe’s rapid downfall was triggered by a battle to succeed him by Mnangagwa and Mugabe’s wife, Grace.

Mnangagwa told crowds who turned out in Harare to greet him on Wednesday: “All patriotic Zimbabweans should come together to ensure prosperity.

“We want to grow our economy, we want jobs,” he told the crowd.
