Former President John Mahama says history will remember Robert Mugabe kindly, describing the forced resignation of the former Zimbabwean leader as “a sad ending”.
The 93-year-old former leader of Zimbabwe resigned on Tuesday after an impeachment process was triggered in the country’s Parliament to have him removed from office.
Mr Mugabe had previously refused to resign despite last week's military takeover, and days of protests against his rule.
Commenting on the matter on Facebook, John Mahama said he was hopeful the events in Zimbabwe will deepen democracy in the southern African country.
“A sad ending for a liberation hero, a patriot and a great Pan Africanist. I pray the dramatic events of November serve as a reboot for democracy and prosperity in #Zim. History will remember Comrade Mugabe kindly,” former President Mahama said.
Mugabe had been in power since independence in 1980.
