Two months after being forced to retire, former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe is said to have started complaining that his retirement benefits have been denied.
Reports from a local Zimbabwe Independent newspaper, reported that Mugabe told some visiting African Union’s leader, Moussa Faki Mahamat that his benefits were denied by Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government.
But President Mnangagwa had previoulsy outlined benefits that the former president requires and said he is entitled to them.
Mugabe is now said to be demanding his pension and retirement benefits just less than two months after President Mnangagwa gazetted the list of perks applicable to a retired president in December last year.
It is also reported that the ex-president claims that his security was not guaranteed, and that he is denied of his benefits that he is entitled constitutionally and that because he joined struggle and fought for his people.
He is quoted saying the government in power is illegal, while calling for the AU leader to assist bring Zimbabwe to democracy.
