Amid Political Tension in Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe Asks Govt. for His Outstanding Pension

While Zimbabweans are anxiously awaiting the results of the presidential election before it was later earlier this morning, former country leader Robert Mugabe is demanding full payment of his pension.

At a press conference Sunday, Robert Mugabe criticized his own party, ZANU-PF, for not voting for Emmerson Mnangagwa.


After his ouster, rumors suggested that he and his wife Grace would receive the $ 10 million pension, immunity from prosecution and military protection.


However, Mugabe says he has never received the $ 10 million as promised. “After my resignation, I went to the pension office to receive my money. The total amount I received was $ 467,000, not $ 10 million, “Newsweek quoted Robert Mugabe as saying.

His wife noted that the money was not paid in US dollars, another grievance for the former leader.

Robert Mugabe also revealed that he had also been promised two houses as part of his resignation agreement, including one in a resort. But he did not receive anything. Mugabe’s Blue Roof mansion, located on the outskirts of the capital Harare, is an iconic symbol of the family’s wealth.

The former leader said his luxurious house is in a state of disrepair and urgently needs repairs. Faced with this situation, the 94-year-old dean said he needed money to move while waiting for the problem to be solved.
