Zimbabwe’s president Robert Mugabe has been in power for 36 years now. He is 92 years old and the longest serving leader. Once a darling of the West, today Robert Mugabe is not so much loved. His country Zimbabwe has gone down the drain and most of his people have fled the economic hardships. He has stood up against four British Prime Ministers – Margret Thatcher, John Major, Tony Blair and now David Cameron. He has also withstood all the American presidents who came to power since 1980. What makes him tick? This book seeks to prod Robert Mugabe’s psyche using research and historical facts that woven together by fiction. Indeed, most of his comrades with whom he fought in the war to liberate Zimbabwe are either dead or have been isolated from the party – Zanu-PF. Still he remains standing tall and showing no sings of slowing down. What makes him tick when it seems a part of the world is against him? This is what he says: I am Robert Gabriel Mugabe. I have lived this long because life has given me everything. I never went out to seek or look for what I am and own today. Life brought everything to me. Heaped it on my doorstep. It started in 1960. I was 36 years old at the time. I had a good job as a teacher in Ghana. I was on holiday in the then Southern Rhodesia now Zimbabwe before it became Rhodesia and then Zimbabwe-Rhodesia. I have not changed ever since that day in 1960 when Edgar Tekere and Enos Nkala approached me with an offer to join the National Democratic Party.
