Speaking to the Daily News On Sunday in an exclusive interview yesterday, Zapu leader, Dumiso Dabengwa, said President Robert Mugabe does not want to retire because he fears possible prosecution for human rights abuses which are blamed on him and Zanu PF.
It is unfortunate that the old man lost a glorious time to retire and take a good rest before his end. He is scared of retiring because of the history of human rights violations stretching from the Gukurahundi genocide to Murambatsvina, right up to the total economic destruction. So now he seeks to establish a Mugabe dynasty to protect him, his legacy and his family from the law should change take place while he is still alive. Resistance to the dynasty from within Zanu PF and the greater Zimbabwe society now makes it impossible for him to retire. Today, Mugabe is at the forefront inciting Africa to pull out of the ICC (International Criminal Court). He is doing this for his own personal reasons, not for the good of a continent that has been at the mercy of ruthless dictators such as him. His fear is to face justice for his dark human rights violations in the event he loses power, which is inevitable. Such are the fears of a dictator whose hands drip of the blood of innocent Zimbabweans from all facets of life.
