Zimbabwe opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai dies | World | News

His death is a huge blow to the opposition in Zimbabwe and comes just months before the first elections in former British colony since the end of Robert Mugabe’s near four-decade rule last year.

Mr Tsvangirai’s illness, revealed in 2016, has divided his Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party, with three deputy leaders and other officials publicly manoeuvring to succeed the former trade union leader.

The party will have to choose a new leader and launch a campaign against a resurgent Zanu-PF, the ruling party, to contest polls that may be held as early as May.
