Another dictator on his way out

NewstalkZB

It looks like Robert Mugabe is about to peg out…fingers crossed:

Robert Mugabe is said to be close to death in a Singapore hospital.

The Australian reports the Zimbabwe president has agreed to hand over power to his feared Defence Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa.

The Zimbabwe Mail says he’s undergoing intensive treatment, and some members of his family have joined him.

The 88-year-old has an undisclosed illness, thought to be cancer.

Mugabe was ostensibly in Singapore to oversee enrolment in a postgraduate course at Singapore University for his daughter.

The Zimbabwe Mail, quoting a senior official of Mugabe’s Zanu-PF party, says the President is undergoing intensive treatment in Singapore and some members of his family have joined him after boarding a chartered private jet on Saturday.

The alarm was raised when the Government postponed a Cabinet meeting set for today.

A US diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks last month suggests Mugabe has prostate cancer that has spread to other organs.

    Great news! BUT… who is in the shadows and will replace him?

  • The Zimbabwean army believes that the fire which killed General Solomon Mujuru was not an accident, and Emmerson Mnangagwa- Mugabe’s favourite to replace him- is blamed for the fire. 

    Until then, Joyce Mujuru- General Mujuru’s wife- would have accepted Mnangagwa as President- now there will be a contest.

    When elephants fight the grass is trampled. T

  • I should have added that Mrs Mujuru is currently Vice President of Zimbabwe. She is seemingly readying herself for taking over the job- friends in Zimbabwe tell of troops from the Cranborne Barracks in Harare [Special Forces] getting kitted up and going to various places. Zim’s generals all made money out of the Congo war, and Mrs Mujuru has a lot of people owing her.

      The Mrs Mujuru that you refer to had the “chimurenga name” of “Spill the Blood” she was and still is a terrorist! Mugabe surrounded himself with rabid dogs (terrorists) who would kill with a smile on their face and have killed while smilling! I hope that Mugabes passing is slow, painfull and humiliating. I predict that his passing will lead to more bloodshed and suffering!

    This creep deserves all he gets – I hope it hurts. Lucky for the doctors he’s in Singapore, otherwise he would arrange for his goons to beat them and their families up. Fingers crossed – good riddance.

  • Ratchet

    They’re treating him for cancer? With arsenic one hopes….

  • Whafe

    Hope it is not one of those cases where “better the devil you know”

    Agree with Ratchet, main line with arsenic is needed

  • Notrotsky

    Mugabe is a vile piece of work, unfortunately for the Zimbabwean people he’ll probably be replaced by another piece of shit.

  • Travdog

    hopefully its a painful death. The cunt has systematically destroyed a country, economy, and lives. Have fun in hell old boy.

  • guest

    Cancer? Hope it’s good ‘un.

  • Gazzaw

    A comment or two from Minto would be interesting.

    • Razorlips81

      Minto has his head so far up his own rectum that he can not see the truth. He will give all the pathetic, distorted excuses why Mugabe has “rightfully” done what he has done. Minto will probably dash over to Zim to attend the funeral.

  • Super_Guest

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

  • Razorlips81

    Mugabe hated gays. So I think a fitting departure for him would be to be impaled like a kebab on a big Ndbele shaft in such a way that he has a lump in his throat, tears in his eys and squeals like a pig!

  • Chris

    Die you fuck, now!

  • Bawaugh

    A tragedy. 

    Mugabe could have been remembered as one of the great leaders of Africa, the Nelson Mandella of his day.Instead he leave a country in ruins, his reputation even worse and a possible bloody power struggle when he is gone. To quote the judge delivering a verdict of death:May god have mercy on your soul. 

    • Leaping Jimmy

      Do you think it’s an accident? C’mon. Look at the dynamics of what he did, and has done and continues to do, in terms of cui bono (who benefits). Look at that across the whole of the sectors, whole of govt, whole of economy. Name me one sector in the entire economy, which isn’t beholden to the reigns of this thug or his immediate successors.  

  • Richard

    Mnangagwa should be slotted asap

  • Razorlips81

    The most repugnant thing for me is the biased mainstream media. Mugabe has been allowed to do what he wants. He openly practises racism. Reports of Mugabes attrocities barely make it into the media. Yet you go back to Ian Smith and Rhodesia there was constant media attention. Same with South Africa, just google how many White SA farmers have been mecilessly murdered or look on youtube using the search White South African Farmers. And society wants me to believe in equality!!

    • Razorlips81

      I should also have mentioned the biased and corrupt UN the real enemy of the West! They are party to Mugabes thugery fair and square!

  • Alloytoo

    I’m curious as to why he isn’t receiving treatment in South Africa. Jacob “I sleep with Lesbians” Zuma customarily welcomes him with open arms.

  • Blokeintakapuna

    Cancer will cure the world from this bastard… just like it will purge McCarten and Unite as a fitting tribute to their toxic legacies… may they rot in hell – slowly, painfully and for all eternity.

    Ya wouldn’t piss on them if they were on fire…  

  • kehua

    Die slowly and painfully you piece of shit Mugabe.

  • Anonomis

    Well done CIA! First they get Hugo Chavez and now Mugabe.
