Zimbabwe’s former freedom fighter and first post-independence leader, Robert Mugabe, has died aged 95, two years after being dethroned by Zimbabwean military.

The former Zimbabwean freedom fighter has been suffering ill-health and had been in hospital in Singapore since April 2019.

Mugabe served as Prime Minister of Zimbabwe from 1980 to 1987 and then as President from 1987 to 2017. He was praised for broadening access to health and education for the black majority. But later years were marked by violent repression of his political opponents and Zimbabwe’s economic ruin.

His successor, Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa, expressed his “utmost sadness”, calling Mugabe “Zimbabwe’s founding father” and “an icon of liberation”.
