    Hooray! Zimbabwean Dictator Robert Mugabe Dead at 95

    Today must become a public holiday in Zimbabwe: Robert Mugabe, the country's ancient dictator, has finally died. The freedom fighter turned autocratic-oppressor-of-his-own-people was 95-years-old when he breathed his last breath.
    ...
    Or as The Daily Telegraph puts it:

    Robert Mugabe, the former president of Zimbabwe who has died aged 95, began his 37 years in power as a Nobel Peace Prize nominee credited with creating Africa’s most successful multiracial state.
    By the time he was ousted in November 2017 his repressive determination to remain in charge had driven the country into ruin and ensured his place as an international pariah ...
    I'm not big on grave-dancing, but for newly deceased monsters like Mugabe, I'll dance. Good riddance!

    I just hope he hasn't killed off everyone who has the potential to be a good leader. It would be great to have a leader of Zimbabwe who is friendly to the US-one who doesn't steal international aid for himself and his cronies.

    I’ve got one of those one hundred trillion dollar notes from the reserve bank of Zimbabwe. Lol! Dr. Evil didn’t even ask for that much.

    One hundred trillion dollars...

    Unfortunately, the most likely scenario is that his henchmen will continue his policies.

    Foreign travel advice Zimbabwe From the U.K updated 8/2019

    There are a series of planned demonstrations in the urban areas across Zimbabwe. You are advised to avoid any political gatherings or demonstrations. These can be unpredictable and may turn violent without notice and the response from the security forces may be disproportionate; you should exercise a high degree of caution and monitor local media and this travel advice for updates.

    Taking photographs of members of police and armed forces personnel and of demonstrations and protests is not permitted. You should avoid political activity, or activities which could be considered political, including political discussions in public places. Ensure you carry identification, so that you can produce it if required to do so by the security forces. See Political situation

    Zimbabwe’s economic situation remains unpredictable. As of 24 June 2019, the only legal tender in Zimbabwe is the “Zimbabwe Dollar”. There is a shortage of physical cash and it’s currently not possible to make cash withdrawals using an international bank card. You should check with your tour operator or hotel what payment methods will be accepted. See Money

    Zimbabwe is currently experiencing severe electricity shortages resulting in extended periods without power. During blackouts, you should exercise a high degree of caution when driving as traffic lights may not be operational. Water rationing is being experienced in certain parts of the country.

    The nearly four-decade-long reign of terror at the hands of Zimbabwe’s late dictator Robert Mugabe left behind a trail of rampant corruption, death, gross human right abuses, and famine.

    Mugabe died on Thursday in Singapore at the age of 95. He ruled Zimbabwe with an iron fist from 1980 to 2017.

    Mugabe was an “ex-guerrilla chief who took power after independence from white minority rule in 1980 and presided over a country whose early promise was eroded by economic turmoil and allegations of human rights violations,” the Associated Press (AP) noted.

    The good thing was that he ended illiteracy for tens-of-thousands.

    The bad thing was that the only things they were allowed to read were about him.
