Mr Mugabe was ousted from power in a military coup after his three-decade reign in 2017

Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's first post-independence leader, has died at the age of 95.

He died after battling ill health on Friday, confirmed Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa, reports BBC.

Zimbabwe's Education Secretary Fadzayi Mahere tweeted: "Rest In Peace, Robert Mugabe."

Mr Mugabe was ousted from power in a military coup in November 2017, ending his three-decade reign.

He was born on 21 February 1924, in what was then Rhodesia.

He was imprisoned for more than a decade without trial following his criticism against the Rhodesian government in 1964.
