Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe’s first post-independence leader, has died at the age of 95, the BBC reports.
He died after battling ill health.
Mr Mugabe was ousted from power in a military coup in November 2017, ending his three-decade reign.
Zimbabwe’s education secretary Fadzayi Mahere tweeted: “Rest In Peace, Robert Mugabe.”
He was born on 21 February 1924, in what was then Rhodesia.
He was imprisoned for more than a decade without trial after criticizing the government of Rhodesia in 1964.
