World's longest ruling leader and his family in military detention.

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

But the Chinese connection is about more than money...
What? How DARE they?!

Only the west is allowed to do that!
Allowed to do what ? Interfere in a country's politics so they can grab all their minerals and stuff ?
China is not interested in developing Zimbabwe for the Zimbabweans. It's more colonialism. This is not better just because its not western.

Edit- Just because Mugabe goes, doesn't mean it will get better.
How come dictators live so long anyway ?

Increasing chaos as Mugabe refuses to quit.

- Zimbabwe’s ongoing crisis descended into outright chaos on Sunday after president Robert Mugabe failed to announce his resignation as widely expected in a national address on live television.

Instead, in a rambling 30 minute address, Mugabe offered no concessions to his critics, the tens of thousands who marched calling for his resignation or the army commanders who led the military takeover last week.

Instead, the 93-year-old autocrat said that “we cannot be guided by bitterness or revengefulness which would not makes us any better ... Zimbabweans” and said that he would preside over a special congress of the ruling Zanu-PF party scheduled for next month – suggesting he has no immediate intention of stepping down...

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.

From Cambodian government news outlet Fresh News today:

Ruling Party’s Spokesman: Do Not Compare Cambodia With Zimbabwe
Published: 23/11/2017 15:29
Phnom Penh (FN), Nov. 23 - Sok Eysan, Spokesman of the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP), said that no one shall compare the leadership and situation of Cambodia to Zimbabwe.

He said the leader of Zimbabwe is over 90 years old while Cambodian leader is only over 60 years old and is in full energy.

This statement was made after some anti-government groups compared Prime Minister HE with former President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe which the National Assembly and his ruling party, Zanu-PF, forced him out of power.

Sadly they made a deal with him and no prosecution. The thieving ,murdering dictator gets a pension as well as his stolen $Billion Plus from the people of Zim.
Should take back everthing he stole from his "people"

Yes, holy fuck, lets all be dictators for life. Good job with prospects. The country is broke, the people are starving, but the 'royal ' family leave with all the goods. I can identify with revolution here. This is so fked up.

Robert Mugabe to get $10m payoff and immunity for his family
Robert Mugabe and his wife will receive a “golden handshake” worth many millions of dollars as part of a deal negotiated before the resignation of the ageing autocrat last week. The exact sums to be paid to the former president and his wife Grace are still unclear, though one senior ruling party official with direct knowledge of the agreement said the total would not be less than $10m.

The official said that Mugabe, who has been granted immunity from prosecution and a guarantee that no action will be taken against his family’s extensive business interests, would receive a “cash payment of $5m” immediately, with more paid in coming months
The 93-year-old’s $150,000 salary will also be paid until his death. The 52-year-old first lady, reviled for her extravagance and greed, will then receive half that amount for the rest of her life...

Immunity from the govt of Zimbabwe is not immunity from the Hague.
