A Complete List of Trump’s Pardons and Commutations

"Today. Donald Trump continued his full on assault. On the rule of law pardoning and commuting the sentences of several high profile criminals he notably included former Illinois governor. Rod Blagojevich was convicted of trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat vacated because he was elected president in exchange for campaign contributions. Begovic had served eight years of a fourteen year prison sentence. You may also remember the governor from the apprentice where he messed up the Harry Potter Challenge and got fired Donald Trump. We'll technically by the apprentice producers today the President Communities Sentence Response Members of the Illinois House Republican delegation released a saying quote. We're disappointed by the president's commutation of Robert Mugabe of federal sentence. Begovic is the face of public corruption in Illinois. And not once has he shown any remorse for his clear undocumented. Record of egregious crimes that undermined the trust placed in him by the voters. Nbc News Correspondent. Tom Winter reminds us are eating. A jury found him guilty of trying to extort the CEO of Children's Memorial Hospital for a donation in exchange for increasing the payments to doctors. Who took care of Specialty Care Kids? Oh but Donald Trump was not done there he also pardoned former New York police department. Commissioner Bernard Kerik pleaded guilty to eight felony charges including tax fraud and lying to White House officials. Carrick was nominated by George W Bush to be the Secretary of Homeland Security before withdrawing that nomination just a week later. The judge gave a longer sentence than agreed to the plea deal saying quote. I think the damage caused by Mr Carrick is in some ways. Immeasurable trump also pardoned bond. Trader Michael Milkin. So guy considered to be the face of insider trading in the nineteen eighty S. Milton was originally charged with ninety eight. Federal counts including racketeering. He pleaded guilty to six felony charges of securities fraud conspiracy. He was sentenced to ten years in prison. He also paid six hundred million dollars in fines and restitution at sentencing. The judge said quote when a man of your power in the financial world repeatedly conspires to violate and violate securities and tax laws in order to achieve more power and wealth for himself and his wealthy clients. A significant president prison term is required in order to deter others others receive clemency from trump today glued former San Francisco Forty niners owner Edward debartolo junior. Who pleaded guilty in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight two concealing an extortion attempt involving the governor of Louisiana David Savvy and the former Bush administration official who was sentenced to a year in prison for lying about his association with Jack? Abramov June grown the owner of a Mental Health Care Company. Who was serving a thirty five year prison sentence for running? A two hundred. Five million dollar Medicare fraud scheme to be clear. This is the president who spent the last six months arguing. He so pose corruption. He had to make sure. Ukrainian president was to by withholding credit grudgingly approved military aid unless you launch fake investigation into the Biden's and route around Kremlin source conspiracy theory tourist findings but somehow this group of liars an extortionist and swindlers is the group of people. Trump felt deserve clemency. Maybe it's just a coincidence. That trump is pardoning these felons as the sentencing yet. Another one of his criminal pals looms earlier today. Trump tweeted about the judge in the trial of his longtime friend and advisor. Roger Stone suggesting stone deserved a new trial. Not long after the judge ruled stone. Sentencing hearing we'll go on that's planned on Thursday. Although she did say Roger. Stone's sentence will not begin until after she rules on his request for a new trial. Trump's interference with the stone cases. Troubled the Federal Judges Association so much that they called an emergency meeting tomorrow to address it and joining me now. For more on the president's pardoning spree. Today's Walter Dellinger. He was formerly formerly the acting. Solicitor General and also the head of the office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice under president. Bill Clinton Mr Dellinger. What do these pardons say to you as somebody who worked in in at high levels in justice in the United States? Well I think the show that we're really at the at the end of being a country that believes in equal justice under law there was no process to see how these crimes and these sentences compared with others who remain in prison. It's the president's own whim when a president acts by Wim and says he did of the Goya Vich. I wanted wife on television that that is an assault on the rule of law. But it goes much deeper than that. This is part of a three pronged assault on low as we know it. It involves threats of criminal prosecution of political opponents. Those investigate you. It involves promises that the president will intervene on behalf of those who commit crimes on his behalf and it. The third leg of this assault is his attack on judges and jurors in cases in which he's involved there is there's a banana republic aspect to it as you said that if you're friends with the president or on his TV show you get a pardon no matter what you've done and if you cross him in any way you might end up being prosecuted and we know that William Bar doesn't seem to be opposed to doing that but they're also does seem to be kind of a sort of Ross statement of power that Donald Trump is saying that if you commit these particular kinds of crimes that are against the Public. Trust that our financial in nature that are about corruption when he himself was impeached for corruption. It almost as sort of I don't know it almost feels like a message about that too about the fact that he's saying no no. I'm going to use of dive into corruption and revel in it. That's a good point Jordan. He treats he treats very high status people as if they're high status is a mitigation of their crops. When in fact it is an exacerbation that makes him so much worse. When you're a privileged person take for example. The fact that he has intervened on behalf of someone who was this got to be the national security adviser and lied about an investigation not just any investigation an investigation into a foreign military powers intervention. Our election. He intervened on behalf of someone who has been a prominent associated with President. Said is Roger Stone Who who committed five categories of lies and engaged in what the first department memo said was a relentless multi year attempt to again and obstruct justice in terms of an investigation into the corruption and the election and then finally the sympathy for someone. Who had the Honora being governor of one of our largest states? And who is thoroughly corrupt? And who sold a position in the United States Senate? Now that's he treats those because high status people as mitigation of their crops. And would it surprise you if the after to the things that Donald Trump does as well when it surprised if he's setting up there's been a lot of questions about whether he might try to part himself like if he's ever found to have committed some crime and that would certainly make himself the biggest part of the mall. I think he would undoubtedly attempt to pardon himself and everyone around him. He certainly let it be known that if a if he's re-elected or or even in the period after he was defeated he is GonNa take care of Of of everyone he knows including himself. I think the courts would reject hisself pardon but you know no presents ever tried that before so we can't be sure and the way in which he he seems to revel in the fact that he could take someone like sheriff. Joe Arpaio a law enforcement officer who is targeting Latinos for harassment and using the power of the police deliberately against a minority group and he pardoned him of criminal contempt of court that the way in which he plays with this. I think Dolly Elliptic who some times on this show referred to the `constitutionalisation of narcissism is what we face in this country. Yeah IT DONALD. Trump wants credit of also doing first step back kinds of criminal justice reform. He wants credit for that. But but do you sense in the pardons that he's doing especially today that the real message here is his own power right that he's essentially saying if you're powerful and you're my friend that is actually how you get a justice not by being somebody who was falsely accused of a crime or got too long of a sentence for having marijuana or something like that. That's why there's absolutely the absolute absence of any sense that the people pardoned held they compared with the culpability and the sentences of the tens and tens of thousands who remain in federal prison. The idea that he can act on on Mir welcome. I think something we've never seen the president before you know. Some people are going to raise the a Bill Clinton's pardon of financier and fugitive Bark Rich. And that was the worst thing. Bill Clinton did in eight years and an office is unjustified pardon but Donald Trump is taking it to a very different level where he's using the levers of the of the power of his office in order to corrupt law threatening opponents rewarding those who would commit crimes on his behalf going after judges and jurors in. I don't know where we go from here. I think we two thousand former prosecutors not just signed a letter but perhaps to think about blocking the willing to be arrested blocking the entrance of the Justice Department out. You have to use your imagination where we go from here Walter Dellinger. Thank you very much really appreciate your time and joining me now. For more. On the president's pardoning Spree Matthew Miller former chief spokesperson for the Department of Justice who's down MSNBC Justice analyst and Betsy Woodruff Swan Politics reporter at the daily beast and she's also an MSNBC contributor. So let's talk about sort of where where he could go from here and where and what it means and I'll start with where he could go from here. Betsy because is there any reporting on how much more of this because it does appear that there is a pattern? Somebody is either you know his friend or was on the apprentice goes on Fox News and pleads for his help he immediately responds to his friends and gives them a pardon. Who's who might be next on the list. I spent the afternoon talking to people who identify or describe themselves as allies of Roger Stone and they said that they saw the spate of clemencies that came down today as very comforting to them. Because they believe it's a signal. The President is sending that Roger. Stone may be next in line for this type of executive action. I thought your use of the phrase Banana Republic was really interesting because a federal judge. Us that exact same phrase in a transcript that was recently released from a closed door hearing regarding the investigation. That's now closed into Andrew McCabe and the judge literally said that the fact that trump was tweeting about McCabe so often the fact that he appeared to be interfering in that process created the appearance of a Banana Republic. So the thing to keep an eye on both the president of course granting clemency to people who he views as his political allies in part because he sees them on Fox News and the inverse of that which is the president encouraging DOJ to weaponize itself against people who he sees as his foes. And I'm glad also that Mister Diligent Joe Arpaio because they're also sort of symbolic arden's of people who are hurting the People Donald Trump's base wants to see hurt.

"robert mugabe" Discussed on Dead Celebrity

"And if you missed that one the night highly recommend going back and checking it out. There's a reason I asked her to come back up Jackie's an associate at the law firm. Kathy Koren's New York City and our practices focused primarily at estate estate planning for high net worth and ultra high net worth families and individuals also graduate affordable. So yeah welcome back. Jackie thanks Dave. So the subject of today's podcast is a bit of an odd one former president of Zimbabwe. Robert Mugabe now. I know that brutal dictators and accused human rights. Violators you leaders and war. Criminals aren't exactly the people that come to mind. When you hear the word celebrity and I realized we're going to the doctor with his choice but ultimately we're concerned less with wire person? Jason is famous. We're not really trying to glorify anyone's exploits after all just that they are famous and what we can learn from them and it turns out. There's a lot we can learn from guy particularly the generalized area of fear. I'm not going to delve too deeply into Mugabe's life since that's not really what matters here but the cliff's notes version is that he like many dictators just threat. History was I. A revolutionary hero leading the charge to cast aside minority white rule in what was then known as Rhodesia just for some context because any discussion involving the history of Africa. Context matters a lot Rhodesia which eventually split to form the modern Zimbabwean. Zombie was named after Cecil Rhodes of Rhode Scholar Surfing and more tellingly founder of the De Beers diamond company which has historically had A. Let's say less than positive. Impact on the indigenous people of the African continent like many heroes Mugabe long enough to see himself become a villain. We'll been corruption racial prejudice anti Western sentiment at a loyal force of war veterans to maintain in his rule which lasted some forty years in one form or another. It was eventually forced to resign in two thousand seventeen at the age of ninety four leave and then he somehow managed to negotiate Foodie for himself and his family and a ten million dollars severance payment out of the deal the unemployment rate in Zimbabwe at the time of his ouster Senate roughly fifty fifty percent. You lost a battle with cancer and Singapore and twenty nineteen. The exact details of estate are still being Susta. And we're unlikely. We know the entire story for a long time. If ever being said we do know that he died without a will. According to a letter published in the State newspaper The Herald is daughter. And I apologize because this is going to be a disaster. This is bona new. Put Zaibatsu who need notify. The master of High Courts Office at the family family couldn't locate any will and offered a list of Mugabe's known assets which included ten million dollars four houses a collection of ten classic cars and a form and under the properties are owned that his name into the family's attorney and additionally there is no mention of the Scottish Castle. He was famously rumored to own or any of the numerous forms the state it thereby Mugabe himself ownership of during his controversial land reform programme. This is grace. Mugabe was listed as a sole surviving spouse while Bono Robert Bellarmine and Russell Gore Rossa or listed as the surviving children. Imbaba is not entirely dissimilar to the American system. So if he did indeed die without a will is wife and surviving children with split his estate. I mentioned earlier. One of the main reasons we chose Mugabe is a subject for this episode. Certainly spent his life inspiring others but it may have been his own inability to overcome certain common fears that led to his lack of estate planning. Jackie Speier fear. Come up and planning furnace day. Thanks Day for that introduction. I think I can come up often. And it can come up in terms of people who die with assets assets. No Estate Plan also come up with people who either don't revise their estate plans as frequently as they should or who don't have as many instruments in in place to transfer their assets as they should. It's a very anxiety provoking process to create your will and other other documents that are passing along nearer property to your family or whomever like leave it to and people like to avoid it. People avoid things that they're afraid of people avoid things that make them feel uncomfortable especially when really no one needs a well until they're already dead so it's an easy thing to let fall by the wayside if you don't WanNa confront it really several fears that we're talking about here because because you're every advisor knows about the the analysis paralysis than if you can just go there doing general planning and they just got to information and it's overwhelming and they got spooked with a steep learning rolls they're talking about fears acing your own mortality and as much deeper seated things as well as just Kinda pile on top of this sort of spooking of the documents the legalese that are sort of any lawyers job chair and I think that there's a certain type of fear when we're dealing with people like Robert Mugabe which I wouldn't see in my practice which is probably a fear of people discovering ill begotten asset so most firms in New York at least most reputable firms. I know my firm. We would perform a know your client Dan Before a client anyone who has assets that they're trying to hide that example. I think a lot of these assets were held in the name of his political parties. We don't have something like that in the US but obviously a lot of reputable attorneys be working with people who were probably avoiding a testamentary instrument or an estate plan in order to avoid Loyd disclosing where they got all of these assets that they've died with as a quote unquote public servants but the other type of fear just in terms of facing your own mortality. And even looking at everything that you have and figuring out what am I gonNA do with. So many people don't even like to call up and I do this once a year. It's actually it's January a second and I'm calling every bank where I have an account and making sure that they have the correct beneficiaries on my account not assuming that they have it right or that they processed it correctly correctly. From last time I updated. I don't a lot of people I I advise everyone to do that. If something's passing other than through there will now call once a year and just confirmed that they they have the beneficiary designation. I don't think a lot of people do that. It's annoying it's time consuming and it makes you think one day I'm going to die an arm. I'm on this episode. We're glad you brought up. Beneficiary designations because it's something that I sort of shoehorned into other episodes of the podcast. Whenever I can I think pound for pound terms of estate he planning bang for your buck beneficial designations? Maybe the best in terms of just keeping up making sure. It's okay just do a lot of the work for you. Punch entrepot their way in terms of the estate planning documents. Sure and I've seen this come up several times where people might have a valid beneficiary designation in place from when they opened the account. But you have to keep in mind. How many times financial institutions merge so some banks have more formal requirements? Some banks. You can just go online and change the beneficiary ficiary. You're leaving an account to click of a button. And some banks. The provide unoriginal notarized document and those two banks merge which protocol McCall takes over. You can't really be sure unless you call up so it is you know somewhat. It's an hour or two of your day on the first of the year but it's a good time to do it. Things are a little quiet hopefully for everyone in terms of work in life and keeping up with it like you said Rape Bang for your buck and you especially lose out when you so. Have you know retirement accounts things like that. That aren't going to a named beneficiary and especially important in terms of retirement accounts with the security. Recently passing oldies. All those roles are changing for for non existing inherited accounts. And that's not really what this podcast is about which is sort of an aside that something to really pay attention to this year. Now this fear is sort of planning mortality boosted my much. We're living in your experience. A lot of it is frontloaded right. It's a lot of like getting breaking that inertia and getting things started severe of like starting the process once the process starts. I think people find therapeutic and things get a little easier getting the first. All roller can be real difficult. Sure I think that yes. Once it gets started it usually goes from there. I do have of course we all have a few instances where you send someone a draft and you just either never hearing from them again is rare but they'll take a good amount of time to get through it. I also I think that the initial conversations can be very hard so if for some reason you're not leaving if you have children and you're not leaving equal amounts to both children you don't WanNa have a fight with either of your kids so that's a conversation you don't even WanNa start. I think that sometimes it's best to see an estate planning attorney. Talk about your plan before you necessarily surly know how you want to bring it about and talked about attorney about from their experience. What's the best way tab this conversation and and also should you back down so a common instance would be the one of my kids? I have two and one is done very well financially. The and one hasn't I want to leave the money to the one who hasn't done so well financially versus the investment banker but then the investment banker says. Hey you know that's not affair. I don't WanNa be penalized for working hard. What gives talking to an attorney who seen that five ten? Whatever twenty times can help you to you know how to bring up the conversation start the conversation they can also help you to know? Do I roll back my own plans to avoid conflict like today with my kids. Should you change your plans based on what your beneficiaries want basically based on preservation of relationships. You know maybe depending on the circumstances I think you also want to think about and this isn't something that a lot of people necessarily come to us with they come to us with. How do I preserve my relationship with all of my family members but how do you preserve the relationship for your family members to have after you're gone at times this can come up? Not just with kids but also with you've left. Adult Children and youth left a spouse who is not their other parent your. How do you preserve those relationships that have probably been or have often been years long decades-long as long perhaps this person has been somewhat of a parent to them but they might have somewhat different financial objectives in the end? This idea of a blended family. I guess sort of the catchall term basically anything that that estate planning is especially difficult because you kind of especially nowadays with so much divorce and an adoption and in homosexual marriage and all the things that can complicate your own unquote traditional family. And you end up with these webs of relationships are all sort of held together thereby like one person and then if you pull that one person out it's very easy for everything to all of a sudden go to crap in that family because a lot of people don't really have any connection other than that person doesn't magically scooping him out of the equation. It's a cold the house is gonNA look to. It can be very helpful to really sit down with everyone. involve your non-party Israeli to the estate plan. But just to make sure that you're gonNA legacy and then trying to keep family peace which is largely the idea of most people's stay plants right and if something's not written down if something's not discussed people are GonNa have different interpretations of what so and so wanted Israel over interpreters but you know you can put something in a well but there's always gonNA be other issues in terms of how do you share this asset. That's been left in trust but but that all five of you have access to during the rest of your lives you know..

Zimbabwe gives public sector protest the go-ahead

"Zimbabwe's protests have been spawned by years of deep-rooted economic mismanagement by the government. President Emmerson Mnangagwa took office in two thousand seventeen big promises to revive the economy. You after longtime authoritarian leader Robert Mugabe was ousted in a military coup country has to be it's different and our relations will be normalized. Peppy visit change in great shape working. It is good young yet now. Zimbabwe has the world's second highest inflation rate. Prices marked on a supermarket shelf can change by the time. The customer reaches the checkout. The crisis has brought back painful memories of two thousand eight when inflation reached five hundred billion percent wiping out people savings causing Mr Mugabe's government to abandon its currency empty shelves in the shops speak of a nation on its knees in today Zimbabwe. The situation is becoming more desperate by the day. It's already sparked plenty of rest. In January protests erupted after fuel prices more than doubled overnight. The security forces responded violently killing seventeen people. The question is whether Mr Mnangagwa's government comment will tolerate dissent at today's March. People are expecting thousands of people to go out onto the streets in protest in Zimbabwe. Jonathan Rosenthal is our Africa editor. There are some real concern for today's protests mater and violent in particular their worries about the security forces clamping down quite hard. The reason that people are concerned is that Zimbabwe's Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa has set loose. The police in the army on protesters in the past in January there were attempts to protest and people beaten again in August those very small protests that took place in it'd been banned security forces said they would arrest people who came out and small numbers did turn out and of course it's little more than a year since the election in August of last year. That also turned violent. twit the police and army shot demonstrators. Who is saying the election had been rigged and so the protests this time around? Who are the protesters in and what what did they want? The protests at the moment of very much driven by the economy. It's much more about people. Struggling to get by rather than an overtly political protests and the reason is that symbolic he's been in slow motion economic crisis for the past few years way. Its currency has been falling. It's used to have a currency was pegged to the dollar. The government is run. Run out of dollars. So it's been essentially printing it so in many it's been producing things called on notes. It's been producing a kind of an electronic money. All of these have been steadily losing value and of course Oh civil servants. Who are the biggest group of unionized employees? I have seen their pay rapidly falling buzz devaluation of the currency rampant inflation. And so does the government even have have the means to address those concerns in the short term. There is very little the government can do is broke. It is facing recession. The finance ministers expecting growth contract by about six to the seven percent this year. There is very little riddle renewed. The government's got to meet these demands to think of the notion of inflation and Zimbabwe's to think back a decade ago. When and you know you could get yourself a five hundred trillion Zimbabwean dollar note? Is there a link between what we're seeing now in the country and what we saw. Then that's absolutely right. Zimbabweans have memory memory of the rampant hyperinflation that the head in two thousand nine hundred absolutely devastated. The economy and many people are now looking at the inflation rate which the government has stopped reporting. So it's now take communists to try to guess and their estimates of around three hundred eighty four hundred percent and of course that not only brings back memories for some bog wins who are desperately trying into shot with what many they still have. We're also seeing disturbing. Echoes in the way in which the government's is responding to this so if one goes back to two thousand eight the finance minister at the time came out and said the normal laws of economics did not apply to Zimbabwe. And therefore he could printers matrimony as you want to do and that just fueled the hyperinflation and we're seeing again at the central bank in Zimbabwe as saying what it sees is a shortage of currency and it is therefore introducing yet another new currency which was going back to printing the old Zimbabwe Dolla. Paula and simply printing is not the way in which deals with inflation so the economic situation that Zimbabwe faces now is entirely down then to government economic mismanagement management or it is absolutely the result of economic mismanagement that goes back decades if one looks at the now late former President Robert Mugabe who ruled from independence in one thousand nine hundred ensler asked in two thousand seventeen Mugabe. Firstly overspent running huge deficits. He then decided the bigger idea to grab the most productive assets in the country. Entry the farms the commercial farms had mattis cronies who then mismanaged them. And we've seen ongoing economic mismanagement where the government is simply be unable to run a balanced budget control it spending and Risher investors that if they start putting many into irrigation on farms or mines or whatever it is that they want to invest in that these assets won't just get grabbed the of course the government is not taking the blame for it saying there is a drought and indeed. The rains have been bad. It is also being particularly genius when it blamed sanctions Western countries the US EU have imposed very targeted sanctions that are really targeted against the person and our punishment for being involved in gross human rights violations whereas the broad-ranging ranges and Baldwin Economic Commerce is a lot of continue unabated so if we assume that the normal laws of economics do apply in Zimbabwe. What should the government be doing instead? How could it pull itself out of this mess? The first thing to do is to simply get out of this crazy. Business of producing new currencies many people in Zimbabwe is somebody saying let's go back to the US taller. The government cannot be trusted to prince own money that would lead to quite as severe short term economic shock probably but it is something that a previous opposition government of national unity dead and stabilize the economy after the previous battle. Hyperinflation the second thing it needs to do is to come clean on. Its major export earnings Zimbabwe. Aubrey produces a lot of minerals in particular diamonds but there is very little transparency as to whether revenue from those governments control done minds ago. Many people suspect that it is disappearing disappearing into the pockets of senior people in the government in the military. Do you think that will that tells kind of wider tail. I mean what's your view on the outlook for the country. Now that it's shot of Mr Mr Mugabe and now under Mr Mnangagwa's aside from the current economic turmoil do you think the prospects are good but we has a real opportunity and that opportunity was offered search lost last year in July when it had selections and the West essentially lines up said. We're racist lending we're ready to support debt-relief and to get this economy back on its feet but in return. What we expect is a clean election and no human rights violations? And that didn't happen. There is an opportunity now. Given how deep the crisis says for governments to put his hands up essentially say okay. We're willing to take the steel into start. Enacting some real reforms in the process. Today we're really going to be seeing people coming asking for change a chance at hope and we will see today whether the government listens to that or whether it reverts to its old tactic of simply sending in the security perceive a schism piecing processes with the streets.

Zimbabwe Continues Its Economic Downward Spiral

The family of Zimbabwe's former leader Robert Mugabe burried him this weekend he was in power there for almost forty years and after he died people hoped for a new start but life subway hasn't gotten any better last last week city officials cutoff tap water in the capital city. Harare Andrew Meldrum is Africa editor for the Associated Press Sixteen years ago. He was expelled from Zimbabwe Walkway recently. He went back to look around at the country that he'd covered for decades. Meldrum told me the Water Shutoff in Harari is the result of both drought end economic economic crisis. There's no water going through the pipes. People were lining up to pump water from wells to wash their clothes in brackish streams or ponds so were seeing a city and a country that is really suffering from huge problems from an economic downturn as as I say you know no electricity in the capital for as much as nineteen hours a day no water. This is is something that was just unthinkable people. When I was living there I would imagine having spent so many years in Zimbabwe. You have lots of friends there. What are the differences in their lives since you've been. La well those of my friends who are still in Zimbabwe. They have experienced a roller coaster. Since I was expelled they they have experienced hyperinflation of more than a billion percent inflation Yaha and also they experienced something surprises in political situation they saw Robert Mugabe fall from power and there was a tremendous amount of optimism and excitement to think that that things were going to get better and now two years later at the death of Robert Mugabe. They're saying will actually things aren't better at all and the government under Emerson Mnangagwa's has has not achieved economic growth or an improvement in things so they're they're disappointed so the the question is why not I mean I remember the optimism awesome. People saying the country will be more free. The country will develop economically. It's Mugabe essentially. Many people said that's been holding us back and then you're saying but in two years nothing's happened why not well. Robert Mugabe left but the same party ZANU. PF and the same military military are running the show and they are not making the kind of substantial fundamental changes in the way the country is run that will will improve things for the average. Bob weigh-in one thing that was interesting that I'd like to highlight was a doctor who was calling for a strike to get higher wages. He was abducted he was tortured and he has now been released because there was an outcry amongst the medical community and throughout Zimbabwean of course it's great that he has been released but it it was one of a series of abductions of government critics in in recent months so it shows that there is a level of political repression still in Zimbabwe. What do you think happens next in in symbolic way. Is there some political leader political party waiting in the wings that has the potential to turn things around I don't see that political leader waiting waiting in the wings and it might be further in the wings than I can see at this point you know things are going to come together so that the country returns to the kind of prosperity that I saw it but I think it's going to take quite some time Andrew Meldrum.

"Associated Press sixteen years ago he was expelled from Zimbabwe recently he went back to look around at the country that he covered for decades Milton told me the water shut off in her ari is the result of both drought and economic crisis there's no water going through the pipes people were lining up to pump water from wells to wash their clothes in brackish streams or ponds so we're seeing a city and and the country that is really suffering from huge. winds from an economic down turn as I say you know no electricity and in the capital for as much as nineteen hours a day no water this is is something that was just unthinkable when I was living there I would imagine having spent so many years in Zimbabwe you have lots of friends there what are the differences in their lives since you've been away. well those of my friends were still in Zimbabwe they have experienced a roller coaster since I was expelled they have experienced hyper inflation of more than a billion percent relation while yeah and also they experienced or something you know surprises in political situation they saw Robert Mugabe fall from power and there was a tremendous amount of optimism and excitement to think that things were going to get better and now two years later at the death of Robert Mugabe they're saying well actually things aren't better at all and the government under Emerson Minagawa has not achieved economic growth or an improvement in things so they're they're disappointed was so that the big question is why not I mean I remember the optimism people saying the country will be more free the country will develop economically it's Mugabe essentially many people said that's been holding us back and then you sing into but in two years nothing's happened what why not. well Robert Mugabe left but the same party sign in PS and the same military are running the show and they are not making the kind of substantial fundamental changes in the way the country is run that will will improve things for the average about when one thing that was interesting that I'd like to highlight was a doctor who was calling for a strike to get higher wages he was abducted he was tortured and he has now been released because there was an outcry amongst the medical community and throughout some by way and of course it's great that he has been released but it was one of a series of abductions of government critics in recent months so it shows that there is a level of our political repression still in Zimbabwe what do you think happens next in Zimbabwe is there some political leader political party waiting in the wings that has the potential to turn things around. I don't see that political leader waiting in the wings and it might be further in the wings then I can see at this point you know things are going to come together so that the country returns to the kind of prosperity that I saw it but I think it's going to take quite some time intermountain thank you so much for being with us thank you know well.

I see. the nice thing. the wide angle. well. anything I should note Scott is that this is a huge stadium in the capital city and it is half empty. what about people outside the stadium I understand you spoke with them too I did and you know the feeling outside is very different from the feeling here you know here he was remembered as a liberator as a. in Africa and you know. became a tight to his own people and right now Zimbabwe is hurting it's got the second worst inflation rate after minutes well and you know what woman I spoke to yesterday she was body she was in tears and she said her heart.

"Of freedom liberty is not a left wing value and that's so I can't blame them. the quality egalitarianism we're all the same all art is the same all civilizations are the same all genders are the same everything is the same with the radical egalitarianism of the French Revolution the French Revolution is winning in America the Democratic Party has already been taken over by the French Revolution. probably didn't follow this and for most of you won't be terribly interesting but it's but it is significant. a truly disgusting human being Robert Mugabe died this weekend live for too long. that he died earlier in life. Zimbabwe would have been a better country Zimbabwe was one of the richest countries in the world Bruce when it was Rhodesia. and there was under white control which I am not defending up obviously not obviously but should be obvious to you. but the reason I mention it is his popularity rested on we blacks will take over our own country which makes perfect sense a thought psycho totally get it. but what happened is in the name of fighting racism. all evil was permitted this is a common left wing thing. right coming this fight for workers feminist fight for women they're all fighting for a group of they're all fighting for leftism they're all fighting for power feminist care about women as much as communist care about workers as much as LGBTQ groups care about LGBTQ people. these are this is not what they think care about their power and I'm doing the west that's what they care about. they use the groups in whose name like like so many of the of the black civil rights groups the leftist organizations. that's it but if they fight in the name of blacks. they have total contemplative conservatives correct correct. total contempt. they're far closer to white leftists that may or two left conservatives. left to wear black conservatives excuse me. Robert Mugabe torture this people tortured his opponents kill people on mass then made Jim Bob where a basket case. it's just like Venezuela the left destroyed it but nobody reports it that's why people don't know. the the press doesn't report these things do you know that I read this weekend. member of the the the slaughter of Muslims in New Zealand remember that. do you know that the same weekend there was a slaughter of two hundred Christians in Nigeria by Muslims. I don't even know what I didn't know. wasn't reported it's not worthy of reporting. only if blacks get killed by whites is it report. killed by blacks two of no interest whether America or Africa. this time was not killed by plus killed by Muslims most room about black. you know why there are very few black Arabs. one of the reasons is because the because the castrated black slaves there were at least as many black slaves African slaves taken by. Arabs as by westerners but nobody nobody talks about that either. because then the narrative doesn't seem to conform to the unique evil of America or the west. why are there so many black Americans and so few black Arabs if there were so many black slaves because they castrated via the block. slaves. in the in the Arab world the Muslim treatment of slaves. so they wouldn't reproduce. how many new new new that. yeah exactly I think that's sort of Harvard. I suspect the. the waste of education the waste the phones buttons stem science technology. and was forget PM with CM. okay with you in a moment. but the the other the sciences..

Victoria in Kenya question. yes you know engine just curious you know after president on Goguac took power in the you know dissension was he would be that silver bullets to Zimbabwe's longstanding problems you know two years on what are people sentiments now. this makes it easy if you try to. political costs here many feel that some of the right steps are being taken tougher schools to try and cut the deficit to drag Zimbabwe out of this economic chaos but on the streets he doesn't feel like everything join dot nothing practical is being done instead they say. installation again we're seeing huge electricity shortages just six hours a day now the shortages everywhere so you see people queuing for hours and hours of the time across the city for water for spread for basics. as I say is taking on real bites out of the salaries of those who do I. so right now there is a real lack of faith and this goes to the heart of Zimbabwe's problem I think. fundamentally democracy here is not yet a short that was another action last year one is on the PS one to the opposition and say it was forty. and is involved with a green so there is a fundamental lack of trust and while the lack of trust exists things like currency reform tough reforms elsewhere he's a very hard to Andrew Harding who's at the.

Robert Mugabe will have private burial at national Heroes' Acre

Robert Mugabe will have private burial at national Heroes' Acre

"Last week's death of former former Zimbabwean tyrant Robert Mugabe at the age of ninety five presented his country with a problem if from the worst problem with which Mugabe presented Zimbabwe during he's later decades of deranged misrule. How does one commemorate the passing of a figure who was both hero and villain in Mugabe's case indeed both with the founder and destroyer of his nation after an amount of agonizing it has now been decided that Mugabe will be interred in the National Heroes Acre in Harare Laura a public memorial ceremony will be held on Sunday one joined in the studio with more on this bond monocle twenty regular Georgina Godwin Georgina as our listeners are probably aware you are yourself Zimbabwean and I remember we spoke at the time of Mugabe's removal by coup data at how we had that atwells that he was no longer enough and what an I guess a big mental adjustment that was for generations of Zimbabweans. How are we is it adjusting to the fact that he's no longer here at all. You know I think people feel slightly cheated in a way that he went out really with a bit of a whimper not a bang that we and indeed he probably expected and he's no longer there but I gather that in his last few months. He wasn't all there mentally anyway. If you look at the photograph few months well I I mean from when he started wearing you know dribbles and chuck suits but and obviously as you point out his his last years were were he was in the grip of definitely something probably dementia but for him to be dead is something that's quite odd because what you're seeing in Zimbabwe's as you alluded to is people wanting still to hate him but also really wanting to acknowledge the role that he played in in in the formations the country and say so there's quite a lot of them big dichotomy between how people feel because us as I think we discussed at the time if Mugabe is say had sort of cheerfully stepped down from office circa the late eighties and sort of idled into a retirement of giving elections and writing books he would be regarded as one of the twentieth century's heroic figures wouldn't they completely and utterly and he would have got a hero's funeral. Oh hang on the funeral which does prompt the question though that who who turns up for Mugabe's Hero's funeral thousands of people have been attending the lying in state. At referrers stadium in Harari who still is Mugabe's constituency well at the formal proceedings. You'll have a lot of heads of state state. I think Cyril Ramaphosa is coming from South Africa and various other people from from around the continent impacts further afield but in terms of ordinary people what generally happens in in in situations like this is that people have Boston and their promised food and those are the two things that people have that they don't have any fuel in Zimbabwe so they wouldn't be able to get there by themselves. They don't have the money money for bus fare and they're desperate to eat so if you promise people all of that they will turn up much. I mean I'm sympathetic to an extent extent or to this extent with the current Zimbabwean government. You have to acknowledge his passing some how you have to do something if not not what is being done what other suggestions have people made there was an argument of course to whether he should be buried in National Heroes Acre. But where else would you put him well. He is family. It appeared wanted him buried in his home area of Qatar which is where he comes from and I think would have been one way around it but it appears that the government was really pushing to have him in heroes. Acre which apparently he had not wanted himself. There was another really interesting piece of not not legislation but something else he put in his will. I think which was that his wife Grace Mugabe was to stay with the casket at all times until he was buried therefore what he's doing doing that is guaranteeing her starring role in his final Hurrah. Do you get the sense that the current government and we should remind ourselves that the current President Emmerson Mnangagwa was for many years Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe's kind of conciliatory if you will are they trying to reanimate the myth of Mugabe the liberator to to their own ends. I think that that would certainly serve a purpose that the end but I mean at the same time time. Mugabe's very useful is somebody that you can up lay all the blame on and say look it wasn't us it was the previous guy where clean we're going forward and of course that's what the what Managua A and his cronies would like us to think that this is a completely new dispensation. It really isn't make no mistake.

I think we should not personalize the coming to power of Mugabe because the independence struggle with him about weight was one that was carried out by the rank and file of the Zimbabwe working people's especially this name Bob when one man this is a vibrant farm workers this embed when workers these imbibe when students an ordinary soldiers there were two main political parties and organizations that developed did the working people there were both that Jim Bob wait African National Union led by Mugabe himself emerged out of our struggle inside of that political organization then there was the Zimbabwe Africa and ZANU-PF zap within baboy African people's union led by drawstring Corrimal those two political organizations formed a unified front call the patriotic front in order to push this struggle for independence what is important was that the struggle for independence became so intense that the south African apartheid regime along with the west organized warm Mozambique where the sim babbling guerrillas were fighting farm and something that is not usually known is that the west carried all biological warfare against the Zimbabwean people buy on legion anthrax again Zimbabwean people when they're fighting against colonial rule. colonial leader of Zimbabwe was a man called white Ian Smith would borrowed that black people would not rule Zimbabwe until twenty twenty. this is Bob when independence struggle was one that brought. oppressed peoples from the world to support them. whether it was in the rest of Africa in the form of the frontline states a proper go whether it was in the global plan African movement and in the rest the fire and movement Bob Marley and the Wailers went to Zimbabwe in nineteen eighty as part of the global expression of support for the Zimbabwean liberation struggles and Bob Marley was in sight well enough to say that I am all this is in Bab when independence soon we will find out who are the real revolutionaries that is what the very important statement in the song that to a song by Bob Marley said Africans that liberates him badly he did not seeing all got be elaborate Jim Bob wait because Mugabe instead of later on turned around and said that rectified by were dirty because they wore long here so the point that must be on the line that Mugabe's importance came at the moment in his job Africa when he was part of the liberation struggle of Africa but as an individual he had learned a lot from climbing Cromer from this struggles in southern Africa phone. June is there but while in political Paul in Zimbabwe slowly he was aligning himself with a new class of Africans in Zimbabwe wanted to cumulate well and so in the first ten years of independence there were major strides in relationship to expanding opportunities for education so that even today thirty seven thirty nine years after independence these them Bob wins a some of the most educated people in southern Africa their worth attempt to transform the health system in Zimbabwe treating doctors there are terms to back to the living standards of the Zimbabwean people but by the nineteen nineties all of this came to naught because of the pressures of international capital in the form of economic structural adjustment programs. economic structural adjustment program was part of the attack of international capital against African peoples in general and in the particular case of the Zimbabwean people to increase the burdens on the working people is intensifying their exploitation. the response of the Robert Mugabe government at that time instead of joining with the working people is what the jar with the small class of Zimbabwe and kept the least wanted to do was the language of liberation to export the working people is what the evidence of big changes I'm babbling came very early from the position of women in Zimbabwe. the political leadership in Zimbabwe he was very cruel. rock called language in reference to one man in Zimbabwe it was even more crude in relationship to same gender loving person seems imbibe way Robert Mugabe. became internationally known for is extreme homophobia so this D. generation in Zimbabwe in relationship to the working people in relationship to the U. within the university in relationship to one man in relationship just do it and in return they should ship the same gender loving personals all came to a head buy a two thousand when the question of the future of the working people came in the formation of a new political organization and by nineteen ninety nine one million workers in Zimbabwe we're didn't strike. this was the turning point because Mugabe caught up with the workers organize with the workers to turn the train your done on organize workers into a United force against imperialism instead Mugabe turned to popularizing the land invasions that particular place by the landless people of Zimbabwe so the landless people of Zimbabwe or older is exercised a boat the white minority that controlled the majority of the best agricultural land in Zimbabwe I am we only have a minute so how would you summarize his legacy and this last years until he was really essentially taken out as president in a coup is legacy in Zimbabwe is a mixed legacy in the last years of the peer to Gabi he's turned against the working people of all press the working people of Zimbabwe was extremely almost four big oppressed women oppressed you with and the military removed him from power at the moment we and when he had lost legitimacy among the peoples of them badly. why are a scandal we want to thank you very much for being with us professor of African American studies and political science at Syracuse University Hren extensively on African politics his books include re claiming this and Bob way the exhaustion of the patriarchal model of liberation when we come back we'll speak with longtime grassroots organizer Lisa fifty and author of a new book it's called shut it down stay with us.

He's contribution to the history of our nation and continent will never be forgotten. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

It's complicated: Zimbabweans see Mugabe's legacy as mixed

"Former president of zimbabwe robert mugabe has died at the age of ninety five. He was is a schoolteacher turned guerrilla fighter who helped to topple white rule in zimbabwe. Only to then lead the country to the brink of economic ruin his successor president emerson managua said in a message on twitter quote commander mugabe was an icon of liberation a pan africanist who dedicated his life to the emancipation and empowerment norman of his people his contribution to the history of our nation will never be forgotten our deputy africa bureau chief gabrielle steinhaeuser is in capetown so gabrielle. Tell me a bit more about how mr mugabe ended up in power so mugabe came to power in nineteen eighty initially as prime minister of zimbabwe <hes> having sort of liberated his country from the british and and and also white minority government that followed and in his his first few years he really kept warm relations with his predecessor they would regularly have t- you know and he i think he was was honored by the british and he will succeed as this and of enlightenment need a he was a schoolteacher. You know he was educated. He we build a very strong education system zimbabwe but you right that the way he'll be remembered is a bit more complicated. I think it's a bit of a complicated legacy. I would say for most imbaba winds. They will remember him for the brutality and economic hardship of his final decades in power where the economy really spiraled and off any kind of opposition was brutally repressed but then you know you have other leaders in africa who really especially here in south africa really remember him for the support he gave them in their old liberation struggle so we had a very sort of hard shelled message from the ruling party the african national congress in south africa so the lauding him for his contribution to bringing the an and to apartheid and how is zimbabwe doing now. It's actually a really kind of sad adds to that because after he finally resigned resigned than i was in harare you know tens of thousands of people just storming the streets in celebration and there was so much optimism not only among zimbabweans but also among western governments who were ready and companies who are keen to engage in an invest. I think what we've seen over the last nearly two in years. There's a lot of that optimism plate fade away so it's hard to kind of look at mugabe's staff this this point to to a story of decline because it seems like the decline unfortunately continues

South African President confirms longtime Zimbabwe leader Robert Mugabe died in Singapore

"The former leader of zimbabwe robert mugabe has passed away at the age of ninety five. Yeah that's right in many respects. It's not that much of a surprise because according to the reports that i've been reading he had been in hospital in singapore since april so clearly he was failing he he was in very weak health and i guess as well that <hes> even before you had the hand over of power to amazon and gangway. There were signs that he was losing his grip. That was very fraudulent bradshaw. Some of his speeches have been rambling and of peace so to speak but not that much of a surprise but i think that it's very it's very difficult when you want to know about him all talk about him because it is such a mixed legacy on the one hand hey was this man who was the the icon of the struggle for rhodesia's them was to gain its independence become zimbabwe. He had actually served time in jail. He spent about ten years in jail. He dove asleep. He's obviously suffered heaping tortured etc but he comes out of out of jail he <hes> he co found zanu p._f. Of becomes the leader of the group you then have these campaigns which quite militarized to actually achieve the goal of getting zimbabwe's independence. He becomes the first post independence of prime minister restoring the country. <hes> is generally seen in the beginning to have done all the right things because he worked for a halt on actually giving black people the black majority some some sort of economic have some sort of economic power also <hes> giving them healthcare doing all the right things and then something went very badly wrong it was it was as if he became came corrupted by his own success and that when the elections were held to select a new president <hes> they were effectively rigged rigged. Even though of course that was vehemently denied he did work at one stage of morgan chenggong who was one of the main opposition leaders that he was up against they had this very uneasy alliance alliance mr chandra of course passed away a few years ago and really he's he's basically he. He had to give up power because it was getting obscene and it seemed that the straw that really broke the camel's back. We'll see second wife grace mugabe because these the inference war was that he was trying to line her up as his successor even though she had no the political qualifications as qualification for the job was that she was married to him so it's a very mixed african legacy yes. They were the good things but they were also so the negatives. Let's not forget as well that turn this country was once dubbed the breadbasket of africa. It is now dependent on outside assistance. It had crazy rates of inflation so it was very difficult for ordinary people to live and when you look at the trickle down effect on the very human level there were stories about people who are having to cross over the border into south africa teachers for example working a sex workers because they couldn't get any money things were that tight so very very mixed legacy didn't have to be that waypoint clung onto power and corrupted him

And again, another story here from the New York Times, which is where we were earlier tonight with, with piece you were sharing Chris, this one from Anatoly Kurmanov based in Venezuela. Zimbabwe's collapse under Robert Mugabe, the fall of the Soviet Union Cuba's disastrous unraveling in the nineteen. Ninety s the crumbling of Venezuela's economy has now outpaced them all been as whalers fall is the single largest economic collapse, outside of war in the last forty five years. Say communists, quote, it's really hard to think of the human tragedy of this scale outside of civil war said, Cathro, Joffe economics, professor at Harvard University, and former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund. He said, quote, this'll be a touchstone of disastrous policies for decades to come defined similar levels at economic devastation. Economists at the IMF pointed to countries that were ripped apart by war like Libya earlier this decade, or Lebanon in the nineteen. Seventies but Venezuela at one point Latin, America's wealthiest country wasn't isn't Venezuela, where at one point wasn't it's wealthiest entity. They had alert oil wealth, and they still have the oil they failing to. They're failing. Keep it maintain this actually exploit that. Amazing. Well, let me it's not amazing. It's the failure of centralized planning. Right. Like they, they nationalize the oil industry. And then, of course, failed miserably amazing to me that they let it happen.

I'd like to hear your comments on those words, Bernie Sanders. If you're listening. Oh Sanders has been confronted about his position on Venezuela. I'm pretty sure his position is that well they did it wrong. But him in charge thing is they did it wrong while he was saying all you're doing it, right. Doing it, right. You're doing it. Right. What has he learned how his policy changed since? He's seeing policies fail in Venezuela. It's interesting because Venezuela has not collapsed overnight..

"Is the takeaway, I'm Tanzania Vega. And now we turned his Imbaba way the price of gas rose to twelve dollars a gallon on Sunday. A one hundred fifty percent increase in posed by the federal government. That's twelve dollars a gallon. The price hike has led to massive protests met by violent crackdowns from the government, according to Amnesty International at least eight people have been killed in the protests and more than two hundred detained. This all comes six months after Emerson Menin Gagua became president and promised that he would get some Bob way back onshore economic footing following the forty year dictatorship of Robert Mugabe. Andrew Meldrum is the Africa editor of the Associated Press and live for more than twenty years in Zimbabwe. He joins the takeaway from Johannesburg where he's monitoring the situation. Andrew welcome back to the show. Hi, Ken Zena. So we've seen reports of these protests. Can you give us a sense of what is the latest in Zimbabwe? Now, how is the government than responding since Monday. There have been three days of a national stay away a national strike. And it has been marked by violence, and the government has responded, very strongly. In fact, sending the military out in Harare, the capital and other cities, and in Harari of the military opened fire on protesters and several people were killed in you, give us a sense of the historical context here. We are hearing that there are people staying home from work that schools are close. Basically, there's a essentially a shutdown a countrywide over this fuel hike. That's right. It's over the fuel hike. But actually, it's it's a wider dissatisfaction with. Emerson was government. He had come to power many rejoiced when Robert Mugabe left power just over a year ago and Moonen Gagua one disputed elections in the middle of last year in July August of last year on the camp campaigning that he was going to bring a better economy Zimbabwe. And in fact, Zimbabwe's economy has gotten worse. Many zimbabweans. I've spoken to they're not quite sure. Which is worse. The price of gasoline, which you pointed out is the highest in the world at twelve dollars. Or the fact that they have to wait in line for several days before they can get any gasoline. And even today there people out on the streets protesting against the government. But there were also people waiting in long lines to get bread because they didn't have basic necessities. How did Zimbabwe get to this point? It's hard to remember. But back in the nineteen eighty s and nineteen ninety s Zimbabwe was really one of the most prosperous countries in Africa, Zimbabweans enjoyed a relatively good standard of living in two thousand one Robert Mugabe was challenged by the opposition movement for democratic change party. Zimbabwe's economic management really faltered the kind of point where things started to get bad was when Mugabe had seizures of white owned farms. Definitely Landry distribution was needed in the country. But the way it was done took down the commercial farming sector, which was one of the major pillars of this Imbaba an economy. The government continued to spend on the army and the police and it took Zimbabwe to a period of hyperinflation in two thousand and eight whereas bobby's inflation rose to five hundred billion percent, according to the International Monetary Fund Managua's also in Russia. I mean, I think there's a lot of outrage that he's left the country during this very critical time he's left at a critical time, but he is carrying out a critical mission met with the Russian President Vladimir Putin yesterday. And he told Russian media that he was asking for a loan or loans to help tide over and improves the economic situation. He's also going to several other countries where he's going to be looking for loans or perhaps looking for oil that he hopes will be. Able to improve Imbaba's economic situation.
