“After a powerful church service at New Life, I am now at Harvest House. We are waiting for the body of our hero. Come through,” political activist Patson Dzamara posted on his Facebook page.

The MDC described Tsvangirai as a hero who had “left his footprints on the sands of history”, in large part through his tussles – both literal and figurative – with Mugabe.

In central Harare, crowds of people wearing bright red MDC t-shirts are gathered outside the party headquarters. Many weeing with grief.
