Robert Mugabe ruled for over 40 years. During his rule, most Zimbabweans struggled and resorted to seeking greener pastures in neighboring countries and abroad.
Some say he was a dictator, and others disagree. At the end of the day, it depends on which side of the coin one belongs to. As the saying goes
‘the one wearing the shoe knows which side feels tighter.
One thing is for sure Robert Mugabe was a fearless leader and always spoke his mind. And did not miss his words. He was a straight shooter, no beating about the bush!
Tribute has been pouring in from all over the world
