He liberated us from the white for us to be oppressed by his system. We are still oppressed. Liberated but not free

Hwende was adamant that Mugabe liberated the nation from imperialists. Replying to William Zambezi@williamzambezi, Hwende said:
From white oppressors yes but oppressed by a new crop of black dictators
Vana Hwende trying to be politically correct. He needs to be reminded of how many MDC people where killed by the ruthless Mugabe regime
SG mapindwa nei. Gloating over a ruthless dictator? @ please beware of such ideologies , expressed publicly for that matter. It’s worrying. Why not just say RIP?
Generally, there are divided opinions over the legacy of Mugabe. Some analysts believe the veteran leader destroyed his own legacy by his deeds after independence. Mugabe was accused of violating human and for presiding over a failed economy.
