Robert Mugabe’s nephew said Sunday the ousted Zimbabwean president was in good health and “quite jovial” after being forced to resign when a military takeover ended his 37 years in power.
Leo Mugabe, however, declined to discuss the $10-million retirement bonus reportedly granted to the 93-year-old former president as part of a deal that finally persuaded him to resign on Tuesday.
“He is fine. I have been to see him, he is quite jovial,” the son of Mugabe’s late sister Sabina told AFP.
“He is actually looking forward to his new life – farming and staying at the rural home. He has taken it well.”
