President Robert Mugabe has been at the helm of the country since February 1980. During the first decade he was revered and honoured as one of Africa’s foremost leaders. His star started fading during the second decade. In the third decade he became one of the most hated leaders in the world, sometimes only second to Saddam Hussein. But he has survived it all and is into his fourth decade as leader. Our initial search showed that there are 756 cables on him. Here are the first 150.
Next month we are focussing on Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai as he celebrates his 60th birthday.
