  1. Zimbabweans are literally free at last. Death is amazing. People will forget him very quickly because they have a lot of work to do to sort the mess he’s left behind.

  2. But atleast he got something for his people better than what the imperialist colonial masters gave. My take up is this: Africans kill themselves due to counter-politics. Opposition leaders sometimes gear-up their people with agitation with leads to killing. I think people should engage in participation. We look at politics as if it’s something that came from heaven and waiting for the best man to make it happen and this makes us over depend on governments rather than being particitorily creative. If you dislike my opinion. I am a Cameroonian and that is what i feel about Politics in Africa. Mugabe to me is a hero. You can critisize but when it came time to stand for the whole nation, even whole Africa, he did, but had challenges and shortcomings. Longivity in power is not equal to dictatorship.##

  3. Only white folks and brainwashed black people think that Mugabe was a tyrant and a mass murdering dictator. He was an iconic Freedom fighter.

  4. Mugabes North Korean trained 5th Brigade killed 20 000 black people or more in the 1980s and he is regarded as a black hero ! Maybe go and ask the families of those Matabele that were too scared to say what they really think of him. Un-happily for them the President of Zimabwe now is one of those 5th Brigade leaders who did the killing. So still too scared to talk.

  5. the way your have covered his funeral updates shows that he’s a hero. Villain is an unnecessary word to describe him considering how much you’re interested to report about him

  6. Bias journalism!!!Rest in power our true African hero !!he had his weakness no man is an Island!!!ViVa Mugabe love from Kenya πŸ‡°πŸ‡ͺ

  7. I’m just here to watch all the uneducated trolls talk about how great Mugabe was and how it’s all the ‘Wests’ fault.. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‚

  8. There is a lesson here for future liberation revolutionary. Liberate, educate and hand power to the next generation. Power eventually corrupts everyone.
