  1. is it true that the old man resigned wilfully? So he doesnt want Dis Grace to take over from him and change Zimbabwe to Zimbagabe. Old man without no godliness in his mind.

  2. If am not mistakes, this is the first African President resign from office, probably in west African, he deserves kudos despite the fact that he is old or have other side characters but he is still deserves kudos.
