The Prester John Institute, of which His Late Majesty was a founding member, had the following insightful observations:

"His Majesty´s remains are buried in Rwanda in a beautiful ceremony organized and presided by the Roman Catholic Bishop but without any official state honors as former Head of State, no decree of national mourning or even the lowering of the flag.  The Minister of Sports was in attendance."
