I'd like to wish His Excellency Robert Mugabe a very happy retirement. He has given his whole life to the cause of Making Africa African Again. He spent twelve years in prison for the cause of his people, and another ten years fighting the racist Rhodesian régime which was backed up by the Brits and the Yanks. After independence, he did his best to improve his country - though it was not easy as the white settlers had made it into a slave society, where all the discipline and order of traditional tribal life had been broken down. In the last few years I believe he was taken advantage of by his wife and others and made some errors that his Comrades from the war felt they had to correct by a military coup. The new leader of Zimbabwe has been Mugabe's right hand man since the 1960s and is known for his ruthlessness. He will impose order on Zimbabwe with an iron fist - which is what the country badly needs. Anyway, I hope Robert will forget about all of that, he deserves some peace and rest. You have made Africa proud again Robert, I wish we Irish had a leader like you. Beir bua agus beannacht. Vive le Régime!
