The former President of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe has reportedly died at the age of 95.
His family revealed that he had been sick for some months now.
Mugabe was born on February 21, 1924, in what was then Rhodesia.
For nearly four decades after the country’s independence from Britain in 1980, Mr Mugabe was Zimbabwe’s leader.
President Mnangagwa this morning tweeted: “It is with the utmost sadness that I announce the passing on of Zimbabwe’s founding father and former President, Cde Robert Mugabe.
“Cde Mugabe was an icon of liberation, a pan-Africanist who dedicated his life to the emancipation and empowerment of his people. His contribution to the history of our nation and continent will never be forgotten. May his soul rest in eternal peace.”
