Bigger Than Life Ousted Zimbabwean Leader Mugabe Dead At 95

Zimbabweans on Saturday mourned the death of their founding father Robert Mugabe.

However, Reuters reports there was confusion over when his body would be returned from abroad for burial.

Bulawayo Mugabe died on Friday at age 95 in Singapore, two years after he was toppled in a coup.

He was one of the most polarizing figures in African history.

A giant of national liberation movements, his 37-year rule ended in ignominy when he was overthrown by his own army in November 2017.
