My response to your passing is complicated. I’m going to write a long piece.

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.
