Mugabe May be Gone

Timothy Kincaid

April 1st, 2008

Virulently homophobic Zimbabwe stong-man Robert Mugabe may have been voted out of power after nearly three decades of rule. This is good news for gay and lesbian Zimbabeans.

Not sure if “voted out” will prove to mean a consequential “out of power”, but we can live in hope.

In any case, 28 years of gross misrule has left its own terrible legacy. I imagine Mugabe isn’t planning on a comfortable retirement in the leafy outskirts of Harare: more like a one-way ticket to Beijing, and out of reach. Alas.
