Fidel Castro, former Cuban President, dies at 90

Former Cuban President, Fidel Castro, has died.

After overthrowing then Cuban president, Fulgencio Batista, Castro governed Cuba as Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976. Then he was President from 1976 to 2008, when he handed over the reigns to his brother, current President, Raul Castro. Politically, Castro was a Marxist–Leninist and Cuban nationalist and a long-time enemy of United States who was friendly with Russia.

Many within Cuba and around the Caribbean mourn, even as many in South Florida rejoice.

Castro was 90 years old and will be cremated today.

How do you feel about Castro and his legacy? Talk to me nuh.
