Mugabe Granted Immunity As Part of Exit Deal


Zimbabwe’s former president, Robert Mugabe has been granted immunity from prosecution; sources close to the negotiations say.
According to the source, Mugabe was assured of his safety in his home country as part of the deal leading to his resignation.
The world’s oldest ruler ruled Zimbabwe for close to four decades but stepped down on Tuesday after the army seized power and the ruling party turned against him.
For him it was very important that he be guaranteed security to stay in the country although that will not stop him from traveling abroad when he wants to or has to.
