Default Robert Mugabe Dies

Quote:
Robert Mugabe, the first prime minister and later president of independent Zimbabwe, who traded the mantle of liberator for the armour of a tyrant and presided over the decline of one of Africa’s most prosperous lands, died on Friday. He was 95. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world...id=mailsignout
I should imagine many will have mixed feelings about him.

He also endorsed one of Mr. Trump’s core electoral promises.
“Well, America for America, America for Americans — on that we agree,” Mr. Mugabe said, reprising one of his oldest slogans: “Zimbabwe for Zimbabweans.”

A general election was held on 30 July 2018 in Zimbabwe to elect the President and members of both houses of Parliament. Held eight months after the 2017 coup d'état, the election was the first since independence in which former President Robert Mugabe was not a candidate.
