Zimbabwe opposition leader Tsvangirai dies


Zimbabwe opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has died, a spokesman for his Movement for Democratic Change party said.

The party’s vice president Elias Mudzuri described Mr Tsvangirai on Twitter as “our icon and fighter for democracy”.

He said: “I can confirm that he died this evening.

“The family communicated this to me.”

Mr Tsvangirai, the son of a bricklayer, died in South Africa at the age of 65.

He had been suffering from cancer.

The veteran politician had fought Robert Mugabe’s regime for many years and came within a whisker of unseating him but was out-manoeuvred and, ultimately, outlived.
