Vice President Yemi Osinbajo  will be representing Nigeria  at the state funeral for former President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe in Harare on Saturday.

Osinbajo, according to his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, will be joining other African leaders and heads of state expected on the occasion scheduled for the country’s National Stadium in Harare.

Heads of state expected to attend the funeral include President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa and President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya.

Mugabe, who was Zimbabwean Prime Minister and later President for 37 years altogether, up until 2017, died last week at the age of 95 in a Singaporean hospital.

The Vice President, who would be accompanied on the trip by senior government officials, left for Harare yesterday afternoon and is expected back in Nigeria later today.
