Robert Mugabe, a year on from coup

Robert Mugabe resigned as Zimbabwe’s president a year ago, a day which ending his 37-year rule over the southern African country. Until he was succeeded by Emmerson Mnangagwa on November last year, Mugabe was the only leader Zimbabwe, formerly known as Rhodesia, had known since independence from Britain. While the West regards the 94-year-old as an autocrat, some in Africa saw him as an anti-colonial champion. Educated and urbane, Mugabe came to power after seven years of a liberation bush war. But nearly four decades after independence in 1980, many saw him as power-obsessed and willing to unleash death squads, rig elections and trash the economy in the relentless pursuit of control.
