A former Minister of Aviation in Nigeria, Femi Fani-Kayode, has described the former Zimbabwe President, Robert Mugabe as a courageous and defiant African leader.
The former minister stated this while reacting to the death of Mugabe.
Recall that Naija News had earlier reported that Mugabe died in the early hours of Friday at the age of 95.
The longest-serving president of Zimbabwe, Mugabe, was forced to resign in 2017, following a protracted intraparty crisis and was succeeded by his deputy, Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Fani-Kayode in his reaction recounted how the late President ‘struggled’ to liberate Zimbabwe from white minority rule.
Fani-Kayode in a tweet wrote, “A great son of Africa has fallen. He was courageous and defiant. His struggle to liberate Zimbabwe from white minority rule was outstanding. He led his army from the jungle, won the hearts of his people, swept away the tyrant and took the throne. May the soul of Robert Mugabe RIP.”
