The Meaning of Robert Mugabe's Stunning Non-Resignation

The 93-year-old kleptocrat won’t remain the ruler of Zimbabwe for long.

"....Now that Mugabe is likely headed for retirement, despite his last-ditch efforts to hang on, Zimbabweans must reckon with difficult choices that will decide their fate.

Or can the country put itself on a path toward inclusive democracy?

Under Mugabe’s repressive rule, once relatively prosperous Zimbabwe deteriorated into an economic basket case. An estimated 95 percent of the workforce is unemployed and 3 million Zimbabweans have gone into exile, according to Bloomberg. Those economic woes made Mugabe’s political machinations all the more intolerable for ruling party officials and Zimbabweans alike.

According to Cam Newton,  he was the first one to wear a rimless hat.     I don't know about that since this guy has been doing so for decades.   :lol:
