The United States of America has said that Zimbabwe’s founding leader, the late former president Robert Mugabe played a significant role in liberating the country from white minority rule.
In a statement issued by the US the U.S Department of State to extend condolences to Zimbabwe on the passing on of Mugabe, the world economic giant noted that Mugabe failed to meet the expectations of Zimbabweans. The statement read:
The remarks are a strong redolence to sentiments of several other observers who note that Mugabe’s legacy divides the nation as there are some who revere him whilst others view him as a monster.
Alex Magaisa, a legal expert and ex-adviser to the late founding father of the opposition MDC, Morgan Tsvangirai, like several other analysts, observed that Mugabe started well in the 1980s but would only change along the way.
