Regrettably the negative aspects of his legacy – violence, disrespect for the rule of law, corruption & abuse of power – live on in the new regime which overthrew him in the 2017 coup
Coltart later added that Mugabe’s enduring negative legacy will be the culture of violence and impunity, disrespect for constitutionalism and the rule of law, corruption and abuse of office under his tenure.
Mugabe died after prolonged confinement to the hospital bed in Singapore. He was 95 at the time of his death.
