- The death was made public by a party official who described the deceased as an icon and fighter for democracy

- Mr Tsvangarai was 65-years-old at the time of his death

The veteran Zimbabwean opposition leader who fought the regime of former President Robert Mugabe for many years, Morgan Tsvangirai, has died.

According to Punch, Tsvangirai died on Wednesday, February 14, at the age of 65, after battling against cancer.

Punch gathers that the development was made public by Elias Mudzuri, one of the vice-presidents of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party.

Mudzuri stated: “It is sad for me to announce that we have lost our icon and fighter for democracy.”


Another senior party member also reportedly confirmed the sad development on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, punch previously reported that there was serious excitement in Zimbabwe as Emmerson Mnangagwa, the sacked vice president under ousted Robert Mugabe, became the country’s new leader.

The sack of Mnangagwa had resulted in a wide-spread anger in the country which caused a military take-over and the subsequent removal of Robert Mugabe after 37 years in power. Throughout the period the military held the country down, Mnangagwa went into hiding.
