September 6, 2019 Update: Robert Mugabe Has Died

As reported by CNN:

Robert Mugabe, the founding father of Zimbabwe, has died. Mugabe, who was 95, ruled the country with an iron fist for more than three decades before getting pushed out of power two years ago in a coup. When he became the newly independent Zimbabwe’s first prime minister in 1980, he was touted internationally as the hope of his nation.
