ZIMBABWE’S first executive President, Robert Gabriel Mugabe has died, according to multiple sources.
Mugabe, who was ousted from power by his own army in November 2017 and replaced by current President Emmerson Mnangagwa, repeatedly passed away in Singapore where he was seeking medical attention.
Top Harare lawyer Fadzayi Mahere, who is also the secretary for education for the opposition party MDC led by Nelson Chamisa, tweeted: “Rest In Peace, Robert Mugabe.
“My response to your passing is complicated. I’m going to write a long piece. However, for now, deepest condolences to his family,” Mahere said.
Another prominent Zimbabwean, Human Rights Watch Southern African director Dewa Mavhinga, has also revealed that credible family sources say the former leader is ‘no more’.
The eNCA of South Africa and the Mirror of the UK have also reported that Mugabe has died.
CNN also reports that indeed, Mugabe has died.
