Zimbabwe Opposition Leader, Tsvangirai Is Dead

Zimbabwe opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has died aged 65 after a battle with cancer, party officials have said.

Elias Mudzuri, a vice president of the Movement for Democratic Change party, reported Tsvangirai's death in a post on Twitter.

"It is sad for me to announce that we have lost our icon and fighter for democracy," Mudzuri wrote.

Tsvangirai had been in and out of hospital in South Africa after revealing in 2016 that he had colon cancer. May his soul rest in peace.
