Mugabe, ‘coupists’ discuss exile option


What Nyerere told Mugabe in 1980


By Nsikan Ikpe


Talks may presently be going on to provide ousted President Robert Mugabe and his family with a safe passage into exile, The Difference has learnt. However, the opposition is insisting that he formally resigns his office.

Confirming the exile plan, the exiled Zimbabwean businessman and publisher, Trevor Ncube wrote on his twitter handle:

‘I am reliably informed that a deal is being finalized. It appears Mugabe’s demands for safe passage for his family have been granted. Final details might be confirmed in a few hours.

Meanwhile, many commentators continue to rue the sad political end of an African leader that had come into office at a time of great promise and expectation.

Remarked Mwalimu Julius Nyerere at that time:

Indeed, the verdict is clear today. Mugabe, indeed has fallen from grace to grass. Sad.
