Photos from Mugabe's burial... as Priest asks God to 'take pity' on ex-president

A priest asked God to take pity on Robert Mugabe as the family of the longtime Zimbabwean leader buried him Saturday at his rural home.

They chose a private farewell for one of Africa's most divisive figures after a weeks-long dispute with the administration that forced him from power.

'This man lives forever,' declared the priest, to cries of approval.

Mugabe died this month in Singapore at age 95 after leading the country for nearly four decades and being pushed into a shocking resignation as thousands danced in the streets.

Widow Grace, known as Gucci Grace for her lavish spending habits, wore a black veil at the ceremony as she looked on at the coffin draped in the nation's flag.
