Nov 22, 2017 – Mugabe’s Removal: Lesson African Presidents Must Learn

A constitutional lawyer in Benin, Mr Afolabi Olayiwola today described the removal of 93-year-old Mugabe as a lesson for all African Presidents.

Mugabe was forced to resign yesterday just as the Zimbabwe’s parliament resolve to begin his impeachment process.

According to Afolabi, the good achievement of the 93-year-old dictator over the years could no longer be celebrated because he resolved to die as a President.

He added that the resignation is good for democracy and it is also a lesson for other African leaders to know when to step down, especially when the ovation is loudest.

“Of course, he did some good things but all his achievements will never be remembered for good governance. He will only be remembered for bad leadership because of the way he was pushed out of office.

“It is good to know when to step down, when your name is in gold, that is when you ought to go, so that when you die, your family will live on your good legacy,” Afolabi said.

  1. The way the Zimbabwe military handled the entire saga is one of the marvels Nigeria and all other African countries should study and learn from.it shows they believe in democracy and consider the interest of their countrymen to be paramount and above their individual glory.
    I pray whoever eventually is elected into office as President of that country remembers that noble gesture.

  2. Kudos! To his greedy, disrespectful and arrogant former Secretary who later become the first woman in the whole Country, I rest my case.

  3. Your wife can make or break you…..yes,he has stayed long in power,no question about that,did it all, good and bad, but his wife is behind this shameful exit. The Zimbabweans should not celebrate yet cos the next maybe worst than Mugabe.
    Until white people leave Africa alone,there will be no peace, because in every country in Africa, the western world are either ruling indirectly or opposing indirectly.
    Nigeria that is changing president or leadership since 50 something years, where are we today?
