Robert Mugabe to get $10m Payoff & $150,000 Salary for Life



Robert Mugabe to get $10m Payoff & $150,000 Salary for Life - BellaNaijaRobert Mugabe, as part of the negotiated deal leading to his resignation, will be receiving a sum of not less than $10 million, Guardian reports.

Mugabe, last week Tuesday, resigned as the president of Zimbabwe after a 37-year rule, following a military takeover of the country.

He was replaced by his former vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa, who was ousted just earlier in the month.

A long negotiation secured him a cash payment of $5 million immediately after his resignation, with more to be paid in the coming months.

His $150,000 salary will also be paid until his demise, after which his wife Grace Mugabe, popularly referred to as Gucci Grace, will continue to receive half of that for the rest of her own life.

Mugabe and his family will also continue to live in their mansion, known as the Blue Roof, and medical care, domestic staff, security and travel will be catered for by the state.

He will also receive immunity from any crimes committed, and his properties will not be “in any way molested,” Guardian reports.

      So he never left office and was rewarded for his brutality and leadership failure. Tell me why any leader of Zimbabwe moving forth should do anything other than what he did or worse?

      My heart bleeds with these cases of immunity and pay off. So they know they have committed horrible crimes that require immunity. Imagine what 10million dollars will do for Zimbabweans. What message is this sending to other dictators? Please squandar and kill and when judgement day comes we will beg u and pay you. Africa is the architect of its troubles. Jammeh pulled same stunts.

    In as much as I’ll love African countries to be developed someday, I don’t see it ever happening, at least not anytime soon. This is not me being pessimistic, I’m only being realistic. In sane climes, a person such as Mugabe will be made to live the rest of his sad life in sorrow. Not with the use of force but he’ll be put in front of a judge who will pass befitting judgement on him for offences committed all through his rule as the President. His close allies and cronies will not be left out either. They will all be made to face the full brunt of the law. However, in Zimbabwe(the country with the highest number of literates in Africa) someone who has milked the country for so long up until the point of lending to his country, subjected the people to such harsh conditions, stripped people of their fundamental rights is being paid a whooping sum of $10 million as a one off payment and monthly payments of $150,000 monthly until he dies. All because he reluctantly agreed to resign as President because the pressure was getting too much for him to handle. The law which should serve as a deterrent now serves as a motivation for others to follow in his strides. It is my prayer that we miraculously begin to see things in a different way rather than continuing to tow the path of destruction as we have done for donkey years. Stories such as this just sadden my heart.

      Honestly you just wrote every thing I was thinking. I’m tired. There is no where in the world that the black man is succeeding. Not even in our own continent. NO WHERE. I just wonder if truly we are inferior to the white man because I’m tired of hoping and praying everyday for Africa to receive sense and be delivered from corruption and wickedness.

      You are being very realistic and not persimistic. Africans are educated for nothing. Petty criminals are rooting behind bars while murderers continue living in luxury. Let’s use our brain for once cause our stupidity know no bounce. That’s why there is no developed black nation be it in Africa or the Carribeans.

    Africa is [email protected] Zimbabwe is one of the poorest countries in the world. So, an ex dictator who has robbed the country dry is being paid in addition to the embezzlement. There’s a special place in hell for wicked people.

    All these have been pre-arranged by Western powers who had been at logger heads with Mugabe. The military took over only to side line Mugabe. Well, what has happened has happened. We live to see what become of Zimbabwe, hoping it will not go the way of Iraq and Libya.

    Africa is indeed a strange continent, rewarding the likes of Mugabe.
    Truth be told, I don’t think the new president will be any different from Mugabe because they are both cut from the same city cloth.
