west: Mugabe enjoyed strong support from Zimbabwe's people and even the West soon after he became prime minister in 1980 and then the country's first post-colonial leader, according to CTV. But he was reviled in later years as the economy collapsed and human rights violations increased. He was 95. The often violent takeover of farms from whites who owned huge tracts of land made him a hated figure in the West and a hero in Africa. Mnangagwa, a long-time loyalist until Mugabe dismissed him from his Cabinet, named Mugabe as a national hero, Zimbabwe's highest posthumous honour. His successor, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, tweeted word Friday that an icon of liberation had died. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
