Zimbabwe has entered three days of national mourning for the former president Robert Mugabe. Mr Mugabe, Zimbabwe's first post-independence leader, ruled until he was ousted by a military coup in 2017. He died in Singapore aged 95. Despite the ousting, his ruling Zanu-PF party has declared him a "national hero". Susie speaks to MP Eddie Cross, a founder of the Movement for Democratic Change party which opposed Mr Mugabe's rule, who says Mr Mugabe was a flawed giant of African politics.
