Zimbabwe's former President Robert Mugabe died on Friday aged 95.
The country's first post-independence leader died after battling ill health, the BBC reported, citing his family.
Mugabe was ousted from power in a military coup in November 2017, ending his three-decade reign.
The country's President Emmerson Mnangagwa also announced the death on his official Twitter account.
"It is with the utmost sadness that I announce the passing on of Zimbabwe's founding father and former President, Cde Robert Mugabe," a post on Mnangagwa's official presidential Twitter account said.
Mugabe died in Singapore, where he has often received medical treatment in recent years, a source with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters.
