Former President Robert Mugabe has passed on 22 months after leaving stepping down from office, here are reactions from some netizens on Twitter.
Death of an African Icon.1st black leader of independent Zim.Complex & tainted figure for many.A hero to some, a despot to others.
Both Mugabe’s rule & removal represent opportunities squandered.
Will Zims mourn his passing or are they too busy struggling to survive?

Mugabe remains a splitting image even in death. A hero to some, a depot to others.
Going through twitter feed & seeing his videos, I realize that few African Leaders will be able to articulate his call for an equal Africa in multilateral engagements eg UN #RIPMugabe pic.twitter.com/oEI79Tgib3

Some will call him liberator. Some will call him oppressor. Both will probably be right… #RIPMugabe, may your victims and your followers find peace in your death

The only attributes that we should be seeing from the African people and the rest of the Zimbos is how Robert Mugabe ruined the country. We should not normalize what he did even in his death. That has been our greatest hypocrisy. Mugabe was greedy and selfish. #RIPMugabe
