Robert Mugabe dies at the age of 95

Former Zimbabwe president dies at 95.
Robert Mugabe, whose final years in power, characterized by economic scandal, violence and internal power struggle is dead.

Robert Mugabe, a champion of independence struggle whose long rule in Zimbabwe ended in tyranny, corruption and chaos, has died at the age of 95.

Mnangagwa on Friday called Mugabe "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 peace"

The minister of information, Monica Mutsvangwa, confirmed the death, saying "Yes it is really saddening. Some of us were like his children. We can never write our history without mentioning his name.

Robert Mugabe has ruled Zimbabwe for close to four decades before being ousted in a military takeover in November, 2017.

Mugabe should have died in Singapore where he made frequent visits to receive medical attention in recent months as his deteriorating health wears. He was replaced by Mnangagwa in November, 2018 who told his party members that Mugabe could no longer walk.


Mugabe has once been celebrated for fighting against white supremacy in his homeland but suddenly become a divisive figure in his own country and across Africa.

His final years in rule were chased by financial collapse, violence intimidation and internal power struggle. The news of his take over raised national joy in Zimbabwe after reluctant resign.

After his fall, Mugabe was granted the status of a respected father of the nation and a generous pension by the new government. This move angered his many opponents and upset many victims of the regime.

Mugabe's wife, Grace, became known for her lavish lifestyle and joined the Zanu-PF by virtue of her leadership of the party's influential Women's League in 2014.
She became a political liability for the ageing autocrat, however, and her outspoken criticism of Mnangagwa was one of the triggers for the military takeover that ousted her husband.


Mugabe remained skinned to his wife, calling her "my grace" in his press conference and demanding better treatment for his spouse from Zimbabwe's new rulers.

May God grant Mugabe a safe stay in heaven.
