If a man is considered a Tyrant for standing up against a brutal regime, then the world needs more Tyrants. If a man is considered a Tyrant for putting his life on the line against the deadly enemies of his people then the world need lots more Tyrants. In the faces of evil only brave souls stand up to be counted as fearless fighters for justice and equality.
Shame on those one side fools who think power belongs to one race or one class of people, every man or woman got a right to decide his or her own destiny regardless of the odds against him or her.
Long live the spirits of Mugabe.
Generations to come will value his tactics and strategies as an example of true African strength in the faces of wickedness and oppression. Those that study the wickedness done to Zimbabwean by her enemies will appreciate the need for an educated genius like Robert Mugabe and lots of other freedom fighters who stand up for peace and justice on their own soil.
This is another Galactic spin by Galactic Clyde, may Mugabe soul rest in eternal peace as the ancestors welcome him into the great reunion of comrades who knows the price of liberation.
In the spirit of chaminuka long live Zimbabwe, none can touch Robert Mugabe with their limited weapons of war as his spirit sail above human wickedness and the evils of this world. You have done well my elder and may those that acuse you of tyranny first look at the evils that cause you to take the stands you take in the many faces of evil. May your chaminuka spirit inspire the next great revolutions to come in Africa

The former President of the Republic of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe will be buried at the national shrine in Harare Deputy Government Spokesperson Energy Mutodi has said.
Communicating via micro blogging site Twitter on Saturday Mutodi said, “His Excellency President ED Mnangagwa has declared former President Robert Gabriel Mugabe a National Hero. The former President will be buried at the national heroes acre at a date to be announced. President Mnangagwa has said mourning will continue until burial.”
There have been reports that Mugabe said he does not want to be buried at the shrine and does not want Mnangagwa to preside over his burial because they removed him from power through a November 2017 coup.
Human Rights activist Dr Pedzisai Ruhanya said, “Let Mugabe be buried there at the Heroes Acre, a place he constructed using the Gukurahundi trainers the North Koreans. It’s now an infamous burial place for some known thieves and murderers in the history of Zimbabwe.”
@PedzisaiRuhanya; Let Mugabe be buried there at the Heroes Acre, a place he constructed using the Gukurahundi trainers the North Koreans. It’s now an infamous burial place for some known thieves and murderers in the history of Zimbabwe.
Let’s face the fact, if former and late Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe, 95, was not unceremoniously marched out of the office he held for 37 years in 2017, he would have still been the President of the country to his death? Despite gaining power in 1987, he refused to step down from office until 2017. His rule was highly controversial, he once won the top prize in a lottery organized by a state-owned bank, among other things.
Mugabe died in Gleneagles Hospital in Singapore, he had an executive suite there for 150 days even after in power for 37 good solid years without interruption he still couldn’t fix the health sector in his country and he’s still regarded as a saviour in Zimbabwe and Africa at large? In Africa continent, are we kinda confused about the meaning or psychologically not fit to govern ourselves? Turned the office of the Presidency to personal/ family inheritance.
Imagine the cost per night of the hospital, R80 500 for over 150 days, this Pan African cost Zimbabweans R12 million rands.
“If Robert Mugabe is regarded as Tyrant for standing up against a brutal regime, then the world needs more Tyrants”.
Tyrant that couldn’t stand up for good health care sectors but could settled for hospital outside the country, good road, good economy, wasting R12 million rands for just 150days. Africans are basically suffering from self inflicted wound, no long talk.
