Robert Mugabe, former Zimbabwe president, dead at 95

"It is with the utmost sadness that I announce the passing on of Zimbabwe's founding father and former president, Cde Robert Mugabe," President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa, who was elected after Mugabe stepped down, tweeted on Friday.


I'm not sad. It's hard to see how the world would not have been a better place if he had not died a long time ago. We're supposed to pray for "those in most need of Thy mercy," and he's one of them.
