Zimbabwe has officially declared 21 February to be Robert Gabriel Mugabe National Youth Day, thereby making the former president’s birthday a public holiday, the Herald newspaper reports.
New President Emmerson Mnangagwa is expected to form a cabinet this week.
Mr Mugabe resigned last week after a military intervention and days of mass protests.
The police and army are to stage joint patrols as the country returns to normal, the authorities have said.
They have already received reports of looting and illegal occupation of properties, particularly farms and houses.
Police had not been seen in public until 21 November when Mr Mugabe resigned and they slowly started returning to work. The army had effectively been in charge.
Before the army operation, police officers had been an ever-present sight in the centre of the capital, Harare, and roads around the country, although they were not always welcome as many complained of police harassment.
