The great Robert Mugabe served 37 years as President of Zimbabwe and he was well loved by fans and hated by his vocal critics alike. Let's hope he enjoys his retirement. He was a controversial leader seizing power by a military coup in 1980 and he reigned over Zimbabwe with an iron fist, crushing political opposition that stood in his way. An elderly man at 93, his time as leader has now come to an end. Farewell Bob!
