Today, former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has died at the age of 95, informed President Emmerson Mnangagwa of his official Twitter handle. 

Mr. Mugabe died in Singapore, where he often used to seek medical aid in recent months, a source with direct knowledge of the issue told Reuters. 

“It is with the utmost sadness that I announce the passing on of Zimbabwe’s founding father and former President, Cde Robert Mugabe,” reads an official post on President Mnangagwa’s Twitter account.

In November 2018, President Mnangagwa has informed that Robert Mugabe was no longer able to walk when he had been lifted to a private specialty hospital in Singapore, without detailing what sorts of medical aid he had been undergoing. 

Officials often reported that he was being treated for a cataract, often rejecting private media reports that he had prostate cancer.

Robert Mugabe has ruled Zimbabwe for around four decades since the independence of Britain in 1980, forced to quit in November 2017, after an army revolt. 

The former President was honored as an African Liberation hero and champion of racial reconciliation when he first came to power in the country divided by around a century of the white colonial regime.
