Robert Mugabe to relocate to rural home

Zimbabwe’s ousted president Robert Mugabe is ‘jovial’ and looking forward to spending his retirement farming, it has been revealed.

The hardline politician’s wife Grace is now concentrating on plans to build a university in his honour, his nephew Leo Mugabe said.

Zimbabwe announced plans in August to build the $1-billion post-graduate university in Mazowe, 20 miles outside Harare.

The plan drew fierce criticism as Mugabe is accused of brutal repression and bringing the country to economic ruin.

Leo said today: ‘He is actually looking forward to his new life – farming and staying at the rural home. He has taken it well.’
