Robert Mugabe, 93, was reportedly offered a $10-million (R140-million) lump-sum payment, full monthly salary, medical cover, security as well as protection of his private properties, as part of a deal that led to his resignation.

According to News24 , reports indicated this week that the nonagenarian was also
granted immunity from prosecution after his resignation as the leader of Zimbabwe on Tuesday.

According to The Independent, negotiators managed to strike a deal with the country’s army generals to enable Mugabe not to go into exile but rather enjoy his retirement in Zimbabwe with all his benefits.

“Government will give him $5 million lump-sum and then the remainder to be paid out in instalments,” the report quoted a source as saying.

“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.”

Mnangagwa also made friendly gestures toward the international community as he seeks to revive a collapsed economy after years of sanctions and corruption.
