Robert MUGABE had more than 20 university degrees though some were honorary.
He owned significant buildings in Singapore and someone who once claimed he will rule Zimbabwe for life.
Mugabe's last days in this world was bitterly full of regrets and lamentations and in solitary confinement.
After he was deposed from power, his wife Grace filed for a divorce. It's rumored that the wife went back to her former husband while another school of thought say that she went to elope with her long time secret lover, a former governor of the Central Bank of Zimbabwe who had since fled the country after their relationship was known.
The lonely Mugabe could spend days without food and holding a portrait of his first wife Sally who died from kidney failure while weeping. MUGABE could also weep bitterly accusing the Army of betraying him.
He could be heard saying he could not believe what the military did to him yet he was paying them handsomely to buy their loyalty.
All of Mugabe's friends deserted him. The only regular visitor was his daughter who graduated recently with a first class honors degree in Economics from Singapore.
All phones to his residence were disconnected. His birthday which used to be marked with a lot of fanfare, was celebrated this year only with the current president addressing the nation through the TV and even in that speech, Mugabe's name was not mentioned. Then came a debilitating sickness which saw MUGABE emptying his bladder on his trouser. He was confined to a wheelchair. Even the properties he accumulated could not help him nor his education. His friends were not near him.
Mugabe went to meet his maker the way he came into this world -NOTHINGNESS. Perhaps Mugabe's money and properties are being enjoyed by Grace and her illicit lover who never put any effort to generate it.
Let those who are grabbing land, stealing public money continue doing so. They will be buried with nothing, only empty handed and their properties will be enjoyed by some idiots who have no clue on how it was made.
The best moments one could spend in this world is with God and with your children, not your wife/husband, relatives, workmates or friends. Your children might be there for you when the rest have walked out. Mentor your children to be your security in future.
Lastly, there is need to pursue God with the same same speed, vigor and enthusiasm we pursue earthly possession which are vanity.
We are temporary in this world, do good to others and walk away.
