ROBERT MUGABE died “a very bitter” man, his nephew has said.

The former Zimbabwe leader died last week at the age of 95. He had been undergoing treatment at a hospital in Singapore for several months.

Speaking to the BBC from the former leader’s home, Leo Mugabe said that his uncle struggled with people turning against him.

“Imagine people you trusted – people that were guarding you, looking after you – [turning] against you,” Leo Mugabe said.

“He was very bitter and it dented his legacy,” Mugabe told the BBC.

He added: “It was not an easy thing for him to take.”
