President Mugabe Is The World’s Most Educated Leader? With 7 Degrees

President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe is the world’s most educated president with 7 degrees of which two are Masters Degrees.

Mugabe was raised as a Roman Catholic, studying in Marist Brothers and Jesuit schools, including the exclusive Kutama College, headed by an Irish priest, Father Jerome O’Hea, who took him under his wing.

Through his youth, Mugabe was never socially popular nor physically active and spent most of his time with the priests or his mother when he was not reading in the school’s libraries. He was described as never playing with other children but enjoying his own company. According to his brother Donato his only friends were his books.
