Robert Mugabe was a divisive figure right up until he died on Friday in a Singapore hospital.
Some saw Mugabe, who was Zimbabwe’s first leader after independence from Britain, as a liberator.
His critics say he was a dictator and tyrant who left the country, once known as Africa’s fruit basket, in economic ruin.
Mugabe was deposed in a military coup in 2017.
So what legacy does he leave? And how will Zimbabwe emerge from his shadow?
