Former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has been granted full immunity and a U.S.$10 million lump sum payment, full monthly salary, medical cover, security as well as protection of his private properties, the Zimbabwe Independent has heard.
It was revealed that Mugabe’s negotiators managed to strike a deal with the military to enable the 93-year-old former president to enjoy his retirement in Zimbabwe with all his benefits.
“Government will give him US$5 million lump-sum and then the remainder to be paid out in instalments,” a source said. “Mugabe will also enjoy full medical cover as well as his full monthly salary. In the event of his death, his wife will be given half salary per month.”
Mugabe negotiated a safe exit through a team of mediators which included a Catholic priest, Fidelis Mukonori and former RBZ governor Gideon Gono. Mukonori said in an interview his role was just to mediate between the generals and Mugabe.
