A plane carrying the remains of Zimbabwe's former president Robert Mugabe left Singapore for Harare on Wednesday morning.
The body was flown out of the country five days after he was pronounced dead following a long battle with disease.
Mugabe, who served as the President for more than one decade, has been eulogised in different ways. Some world leaders have refused to mourn, arguing that he is a villain and not hero.
The police motorbikes escorted the body of the fallen liberation hero which was carried in a white Mercedes hearse.
The plane with the remains of the deceased and some of the family members departed moments after the body was removed from the morgue. His nephew Adam Molai has confirmed the departure of the plane during an interview with Al Jazeera.
The delegation from his motherland conducted a private Catholic mass for Mugabe at the funeral parlour. The government has confirmed that the body of the deceased is set to arrive in Zimbabwe at 3pm (1300 GMT).
Mugabe died on Friday at the age of 95. The government and family are yet to agree on burial site of the ex President.
Leaders from different parts of the World have continued to send their messages of condolence to the family of the deceased after the announcement of the sad news.
