Robert Mugabe, who led Zimbabwe to independence from Britain in 1980 and then crushed his opposition during nearly four decades of rule, always liked to be seen as a devout Catholic. Mugabe, pictured in a July 29, 2018, photo, died at age 95 Sept. 6, 2019, in Singapore, where he often received medical treatment in recent years. (CNS photo/Reuters/Siphiwe Sibekoo)
