Mugabe Gets U.S.$10 Million, Full Salary and More
Zimbabwe's former president Robert Mugabe, 93, was reportedly offered a U.S.$10 million lump-sum payment, full monthly salary, medical cover, security, as well as protection of his private properties, as part of a "golden goodbye" package that led to his resignation. Mugabe, who finally bowed to pressure to resign after 37 years in power, is said to have struck the bargain to allow him and his family to enjoy a luxurious retirement in Zimbabwe rather than being forced into exile.
