Ibbo Mandaza said : “The bottom line is the family is very bitter that Robert was pushed out. If Mugabe were to be buried at Heroes Acre, it would allow Mnangagwa to pontificate over his body and that would legitimise his rise to power,” “It would be like the coup never happened and the family accepts that. The coup was illegitimate and Mugabe’s death has stirred up lots of unsettled issues,” External link

Already we saw when she made the announcements at the press conference. She had the support of nine provincial structures and the tenth one released a statement supporting her move and all these are a younger generation.
