Former President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe has kicked the bucket at the age of 95 in a hospital in Singapore where he has been seeking treatment for some time now.

The news of his sudden demise was confirmed by the current President Emmerson Mnangagwa earlier this morning Friday, September 6, 2019.

He shared: “It is with utmost sadness that I announce the passing on of Zimbabwe’s founding father and former President Cde Robert Mugabe”

He continued; “Cde Mugabe was 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 eternal peace.

After ruling the Southern African country for 37 years, 94-year-old Mugabe finally resigned on November 21, 2017. The Zimbabwe National Army instigated an overthrow of Mugabe’s regime by placing him under house arrest for the crimes committed by individuals in his circle.

He was given the ultimatum to either resign by November 20, 2017, or face impeachment. He subsequently chose the former. His retirement sparked nationwide jubilations as Zimbabweans celebrated the dawn of a new era. Mugabe’s vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa, who he fired on November 6, was sworn in as the new president.
