President Mnangagwa: It is with the utmost sadness that I announce the passing on of Zimbabwe’s founding father and former President, Cde Robert Mugabe.

Cde Mugabe was an icon of liberation, a pan-Africanist who dedicated his life to the emancipation and empowerment of his people. His contribution to the history of our nation and continent will never be forgotten. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

Jonathan Moyo: A dark cloud has enveloped Zimbabwe and beyond. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord!

Jealousy Mawarire: A dark day!!! Aaaah, my God!

Fadzayi Mahere: Rest In Peace, Robert Mugabe. My response to your passing is complicated. I’m going to write a long piece. However, for now, deepest condolences to his family.

Team PaChedu: RIP President R. G. Mugabe! Our hearts have been filled with profound sorrow and our eyes with tears upon hearing the distressing news of the passing on of R. G. Mugabe. We extend our utmost sincere condolences to the family, friends and the rest of the bereaving Zimbabwe.

Energy Mutodi: Rest In Peace President Robert Mugabe. There is no doubt you were an African icon, a statesman of a rare character and a revolutionary. I wish to pass our condolences on my own behalf & on behalf of the government to His Excellency President ED Mnangagwa & the Mugabe family.

Busisa Moyo: We reflect on the good you did in prioritizing our education, carving a path that made us globally competent executives, forging a canopy of tolerance & unity where different tribes could live together in Zimbabwe & standing for small vulnerable countries on the global stage.

Patson Dzamara: Scripture says there is a time for everything under the sun…a time to be born and a time to die. Every dawn precedes a sunset. R.G Mugabe has left behind a conflicted legacy & a pregnant case study. May his soul rest in peace. May his family find comfort.

  1. The problem with us humanity! We are full of pretence how many people died in matebeleland,the Amy General you can count them all .
    How many people out Zimbabwe,just because of him don’t fool us ,Mugabe wasn’t a good man,
    Why don’t you say the truth that he was a killer and corrupt man that’s why Zimbabwe is on its knees today.

  2. Donald: you are absolutely correct. This man was a murderer, genocidal killer, a thief of millions and a destroyer of a wonderful prosperous country. The ‘Dark Days’ are now turning bright so that people can actually see this mans’ true destructive legacy. They should throw his body to the hungry hyenas.

  3. Former President Mugabe had an excitingly contradictory personality. On the positive side of leadership, he was brave and decisive; while on the negative, he was very arrogant and vindictive! The man did both great and terrible things to the country. My generation cherishes the sound education policies of the early eighties to mid-nineties. We cherish the stable economy from the early eighties to mid 90s. We cherish his pan-Africanism and his stance against imperialism. On the other hand, we condemn the heavy handedness in dealing with the dissidents Matebeleland and Midlands provinces. Civilians suffered unnecessarily. We condemn his arrogant statements and actions to his political opponents like the: late Umdala Wethu Joshua Nkomo; Edgar Tekere; and Morgan Tsvangirayi, to mention a few. We felt let down by his over-stay in power, which led him to take bad advice from the likes of Jonathan Moyo. May His Soul Rest In Peace.

  4. Hip hip hooray, one less evil bastard gone just need the rest of any of to go. They have destroyed such a beautiful country from being on top of its game too nothing. They should all be gathered together and made to disappear like what they do if you challenge them. At least when it was run by whites the country was organized not now with these monkeys. Instead of stealing enough money for themselves and putting the rest back in the country they want to steal every cent worse than baboons. What makes me laugh is how can the people be so foolish to have believed in their bullshit thank fuck my dad left zims when these assholes took over he could see what was gonna happen. Any rant over good luck to the rest of the zimbabwe people you’ll need it.

  5. We pray for God to restore our country
    Its so painful,how people are surviving.
    I am finding it difficult,how our children are going to look after their children in such a country where looting of the resources is at an alarming rate.May God make the elders selfless and love their country and the people in it.
