Buhari hasn't even spent 4 years baba. calm down. The people you should be firing such prayers against are those senators that have spent over 16 years in senate and the governors that spent 8 years in their states and are presently serving as senators and the governors that are concluding their 8 years and still aspiring for senate. Those ones should concern you better man.

GBAM.................... But jokes apart 37 years is a long way man. And come to think of it a 93 year old man must be having memory losses by now. You must always remind him of conversations every five five minutes...........

Like I do tell close people around me, how I wish God can raise up a Jerry J. Rawlings for us in Nigeria. Just watch and see how things will get better for them in Zimbabwe so far it was a bloodless ousting and not a revolution like they had in Egypt, Libya and co. See Ghana today, their economy is on a geometrical rise. But our own politicians have held us to ransom. The God that did it for the Zimbabweans will do it for us peacefully too in Nigeria without any chaos, riot or war. AMEN!!!!!!!!

All hail the king in the South..

He is a brilliant man tho. Actually, he was no longer a president since a week ago after the military takeover. He rewrote his own history. It will go down forever that after 37years of ruling Zimbabwe, Mugabe resigned. Instead of the other way round.

I was shocked when I saw it. Thought he might hold on till death, especially since there is a tendency for Africans to never let go of power after tasting it.

Wish Zimbabwe the best as it starts rebuilding.

Still undemocratic. No matter how they try make the thing appear democratic, it is not. Democracy doesn't work like that. You don't make change in a democracy like that. What happened is a coup. No afterthought can change that.

Power and life is transient. Mugabe who once boasted no military coup can remove him is now under house arrest by the military.

The condemnation by the war veterans in 2016 of abandoning the revolution didn’t help his case either. They had accused him of promoting corruption and said they will not support him in next year’s election.

His treatment of the white farmers in his country didn’t help him or his country either and the sanctions he got suffered the country.

Till now, none of the western counties, who love to promote democratic values, has condemned the military coup. Tacit support or endorsement?

His wife has received criticisms and Mugabe’s attempt to pass her the touch annoyed the military, politicians and revolutionaries more. It seems everyone is finally fed up with him that even when democratic values are shattered to remove him, no one seem to care.

In Egypt when a similar thing happened, it was regarded as a ‘military intervention’ by the US and other powers when obviously a coup happened. What happened in Zimbabwe is a coup but unfortunately, Mugabe has annoyed so many people, destroyed so many laws and his authoritarianism has made it difficult to speak about him in the democratic language.

Mugabe has shown that he still has some sense left...
He doesn't want to be disgraced. He still wants to have a voice after leaving the position.

Sharp guy he is...
