“Mugabe’s Ideology Will Continue To Guide This Nation,” – ED

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said that the ideology of the late founding leader of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, will continue to guide the nation.

He was speaking after the arrival of the remains of the late veteran leader who passed on in the early hours of Friday in a hospital in Singapore where he was receiving medical attention. Mnangagwa said:

We are gathered here to receive his body and we are grieved and we say our sincere and deep condolences to the former First Lady who has brought the body, Amai Grace Mugabe, children and immediate family members, the entire nation of Zimbabwe, our people who are grieved and are in mourning because the light which led us to independence is no more, but his works, ideology will continue to guide this nation.

Mugabe was popularly known for his socialist and populist policies including free education and free medication for all.

The former ZANU PF boss is said to have rejected advice from the then president of China, Deng, who had advised him to adopt capitalism which he said would result in the transformation of the economy.

Although scores of Zimbabweans benefitted from the policies, analysts observe that the initiatives were not sustainable.
