Robert Mugabe – Zimbabwe’s first post-independence leader – has died aged 95.
He had been receiving treatment in a hospital in Singapore, since April.

Mugabe won Zimbabwe’s first election, after the country secured independence from the UK, and become Prime Minister in 1980.
He abolished the office in 1987, becoming President instead!

Mugabe’s 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 ousted in a military coup in 2017, after 37 years in power.
