President of Zimbabwe

Former President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, died at a hospital in Singapore at the age of 95.

Mugabe’s relatives reportedly left their country to Singapore on the 6th. Mugabe has been in Singapore for some time and is accused of using instruments to sustain his life.

Mugabeben, a poor family member, was a middle school teacher, but in 1960 he embarked on an anti-British colonial movement and was sentenced to 11 years in prison for being accused of inciting rebellion. After he was released from prison, he led the National League-Patriotic Front to continue to fight against Britain. He eventually succeeded in 1979, and the colonial government made Zimbabwe independent. In 1980 he was elected the country’s first prime minister.

Mugabe was regarded as a symbol of the country’s resistance to colonial rule for some time. However, while implementing some German policies, he also tried to exclude dissidents and power. He amended the constitution in 1987 to give himself the power to dissolve Congress and unlimited re-election. Mugabe is not a hero of the founding of the country at this time, but a dictator who is uncompromising.

Mugabe launched a land reform program in the 1990s, which resulted in a large number of farm workers losing their jobs and a sharp drop in agricultural output. In addition, this policy has also led to the country’s international sanctions, and its economy has begun to embark on the road to collapse. Instead of giving up, he did not solve the problem by printing money in a crazy way, causing serious inflation. In 2008, the country’s inflation reached an extremely horrific 500 billion times, forcing the country to abandon its currency and switch to the dollar. The people’s lives are miserable. During the period of land reform, he squandered his pockets and took a large portion of the land he had confiscated.

In 2017, Mugabe dismissed the vice president of Emmerson Mnangagwa, who had a strong chance to win the presidency, and wanted his wife, Grace, to succeed, but this caused the military to be dissatisfied and then launched a coup. Will Mugabe under house arrest. Shortly after the parliamentary motion on Mugabe on November 21st of the same year, he submitted a resignation letter to Congress, announcing the immediate resignation of the presidency and ending the 37-year Mugabe era.
