Zimbabwe ex-president, Robert Mugabe is dead

Zimbabwe ex-president, Robert Mugabe is dead. His family has confirmed his death. Mr Mugabe had been receiving treatment in a hospital in Singapore since April.

He was ousted in a military coup in 2017 after 37 years in power.

His early years were praised for broadening access to health and education for the black majority, but his later years were marked by rights abuses and corruption. He was 95. Indeed, everyone will die.
