Receiving treatment for an undisclosed illness in April in Singapore, Zimbabwe’s former President Robert Mugabe has died, aged 95. Mugabe, who dominated Zimbabwe’s politics for nearly 40 years, was a controversial figure whose supporters considered him as a hero who helped Zimbabwe from British colonialism, but whose detractors accused him of economic mismanagement, corruption and crimes against humanity.
