Mugabe Not Out to Pasture Yet, Not By a Long Shot

Just when Zimbabweans thought Robert Mugabe had been put out to pasture, the 94-year-old may be staging a come-back! He has sent shockwaves through the party he dominated for decades, when he posed in a photo with the retired general who will take on the ruling Zanu-PF in this year's election. Many Zimbabweans have urged Mugabe to stay away from politics and enjoy his retirement rather than sneak back into the political field. However, his recent private visit to South Africa may have been to meet exiled allies, to plan the downfall of the man he so bitterly opposes, Emmerson Mnangagwa.
