Remember to say something nice cause his family and friends could be reading this forum.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I take no sides on this guy, I do not know enough myself.
He has an appalling record according to the West.
But apparently he has far more support in Africa, including in Zimbabwee, that we are ever told about.
Maybe he is not as black hearted as he is made out to be. ???
The western press does have a long history of presenting Africa from a very white/european/multi-national-corp perspective.

China mourns Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe after years of unwavering support
Despite international pressure to stop working with his administration over its human rights record, Beijing’s influence in the African nation only grew
Chinese foreign ministry describes him as an ‘outstanding leader of the national liberation movement and statesman’

Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe’s former strongman who has died at the age of 95, might not receive glowing tributes from the West. But with condolences from China and other African leaders, he may rest in peace.

His successor, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, confirmed Mugabe’s death in a Singapore hospital on Friday.

For close to half a century, China and Mugabe’s Zimbabwe enjoyed an unmatched camaraderie, until maintaining those ties became almost untenable for Beijing.

China on Friday described Mugabe as an “outstanding leader of the national liberation movement and statesman” who firmly defended the country’s sovereignty, as African leaders termed him a “liberator” and “pan-Africanist”, while some media called him a “tyrant”.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said Mugabe’s death was deeply mourned in China, noting that the former president opposed foreign interference and actively promoted Beijing’s relations with Zimbabwe and Africa.

“We’d like to express deep condolences over Mugabe’s passing, and convey sincere sympathy to Zimbabwe’s government, its people, as well as his family members,” Geng said.
