4 countries who could grant ex Zimbabwe ruler exile
Mugabe may just be planning his exile. Here are countries he can choose from.
And there’ll probably be no shortage of countries whose leaders will open their arms to welcome the old man of African politics.
Here’s a shortlist Mugabe can work with.
1. South Africa
Jacob Zuma is one person Mugabe can always call friend.
Plus, South Africa lies just across the border from Zimbabwe.
Zuma and Mugabe also share depraved values and all.
Not a bad exile destination, huh?
Yoweri Museveni has been in power since 1986.
Over 31 years as president? That’s something that Mugabe would be proud of.
And both men could spend plenty of time with the other under the moonlight, telling tales of longevity in office and sit-tight leadership.
Like Mugabe, Paul Biya doesn’t intend to leave office any time soon.
He’s been Cameroon president for 35 years—just two years shy of Mugabe’s record.
Biya wouldn’t mind asking Mugabe how he made it to 37, while listening attentively at the feet of Robert.
4. Equatorial Guinea
Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo is another strong man of African dictatorship who would love a Mugabe company.
Obiang beats Mugabe’s record. He’s been in power for 38 years and Mugabe would love to hear how he did it without being greeted with protesters on the streets and soldiers pointing guns to his head.
Other countries whose leaders rig elections and crackdown on dissent like Chad's Idriss Deby and Sudan's Umar al-Bashir could also be happy campers for Mugabe
