Now the estate of him made up.

It shows, not surprisingly, that he by his death had not a little more in the bank than most of his previous subjects in the poor african country.

However, lænsede Mugabe not his country of riches in the same way as other former african leaders. For example, Respect for the (current Congo) ex-dictator Mobuto one of the world's richest men by milking the country for the money, its enormous natural resources, including gold and gems, brought.

Robert Mugabe became Zimbabwe's first prime minister since the country seceded from the british colonial rule in 1980. In 1987 he became president.

He kept the power until 2017, where he was deposed by a military coup.

In the course of his 37 years as president Robert Mugabe is increasingly met with international condemnation because of its oppression of the Zimbabwean white minority. This applies not least to the seizures of white farmers ' land.

at the same time he was of many of the country's black inhabitants, considered as an hero, who had large and vital for Zimbabwe's independence.
