Mugabe Turns Down Nguema’s Offer Of Refuge, Complains That He Is Being Harassed And Blamed For Everything

Former President Robert Mugabe is reported to have told his friend President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea that he was being harassed and spied on President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration. However, despite this, Mugabe turned down the Nguema’s offer for refuge saying that he would die in Zimbabwe. Sources who spoke to The Standard said,

The old man told president Nguema that ED’s administration was harassing his family and at some point, he regretted the good things he had done for the current leaders. He spoke of how he shaped Mnangagwa and (vice- president Constantino) Chiwenga’s careers by helping them against all odds…He spoke of how the military and other spy agencies were busy spying on his family, those who work for him being subjected to questioning again and again and to some extent his freedom being curtailed.

…[Mugabe said] “this is my home, I will die here. I will visit you as and when I want to but I will never abandon my people.”

…He was also told that Nguema would raise his complaints with Mnangagwa but most importantly, he must not fight them as this would affect his family interests.

This is not the first time that Mugabe has complained that he is being harassed. He also said the same thing to African Union (AU) Commission Chairman Moussa Faki Mahamat in February.

    Old people can be a pain to those who look after them , as a result they are left to be looked after by strangers at the old peoples home. Majority of cases are like your Mugabe. The old man is now a pain to all those who love him and at best send him to the old people home.There he will meet his match.
