Robert Mugabe

Mugabe has served as the head of the government of Zimbabwe since 1980, after rising to prominence in the 1970s as leader of a Marxist-inspired guerrilla war against the government of Rhodesia. Though he remains a hero to some for his role in the independence movement, his administration now faces accusations of corruption, suppression of political opposition, mishandling of land reform, and human rights abuses. What 2005 movie was banned by his office amid claims that it is CIA propaganda? More...

Answer:
Quote:
Mugabe's office forbade the screening of the 2005 movie The Interpreter — which had as an antagonist a South African dictator widely thought to be modeled after Mugabe — claiming that it was propaganda by the CIA and fearing that it could incite hostility towards him.[131


He had a good education, & a grand vision: he impressively raised the literacy rate, & the average lifespan while lowering the infant mortality. If only he'd used his powers for good instead of evil. Shame on you

I'll be wishing my aunty a happy birthday today. Robert Mugabe can kiss my deepest dimple!

Though the rest of this article is arguably correct,the Presidium is so outdated I can't believe it. Simon Vengesai Muzenda died September 2003 and Joyce Teurairopa Mujuru was fired by Mugabe late last year for allegedly plotting against the nonagenarian. Morgan Richard Tsvangirai was prime minister for 4 years. It needs an update. Current presidium has Mugabe, Emerson Mnangagwa and Phelekezela Mphoko, an unknown former ambassador to South Africa.

Robert Mugabe is turning 91, feasting on elephant meat as his people starve
The Zimbabwean president’s birthday celebrations will show the world just how little he cares about the nation whose catastrophic situation he has engineered

The supreme leader, commander-in-chief of the armed forces, first secretary of Zanu-PF, president of the Republic of Zimbabwe, chair of the African Union and Southern African Development Community, and sole Zanu-PF presidential candidate for the next elections – hopefully to be held in 2018 – turns 91 on Saturday.

The extent of Robert Mugabe’s demigod status in Zimbabwe is mind boggling. Mugabe’s birthday bash is scheduled to be held next Saturday in Victoria Falls, at the Elephant Hills golf course.

It is reported that the budget for the event is a cool US $1m, mainly raised by cronies who will no doubt be jostling to be front of the queue to wish their supreme leader many happy returns.

There have been reports that poor villagers throughout the country are being forced to donate money and goods. The leader of the Progressive Teachers’ Union, Raymond Majongwe, has said teachers throughout the country were forced to contribute up to $10 towards the feast, which 20,000 people are expected to attend.

On the menu will be two elephants, two buffaloes, two sable antelopes, five impalas and a lion kindly donated by a local farmer.
