A country divided by politics, Zimbabwe has today been united by music.

People gathered at the home of one of the country’s most famous musicians, Oliver Mtukudzi, who died yesterday aged 66 from complications of diabetes.

President Mnangagwa called him a true patriot, while opposition leader Nelson Chamisa said he was a peace icon.
