The inimitable Zimbabwean Patriot - Robert Gabriel Mugabe!

The inimitable Zimbabwean Patriot - Robert Gabriel Mugabe!


Tribute to Robert Mugabe



By Stanley Collymore


You courageously and quite fearlessly, relative to your

own individual safety and security, stalwartly stood

up for the freedom, the recovery of their callously

subverted independence as a nation, and the

demoralized dignity of the Zimbabwean

people. An honourable stance on your

part that put you, Robert Mugabe, dangerously, in terms

of your own safety and personal wellbeing, at odds

with the fascist, apartheid and white racist barbarians,

who in conjunction with their likeminded western

Caucasian so-called kith and kin that had not

only previously purloined your country’s

enormous wealth and natural resources,

had also, in the process of doing so,

likewise extremely barbarically and

uncompensated, seized the entire

country of Zimbabwe for their

asserted racist, colonialist and

inhuman apartheid purposes.


While simultaneously had additionally and quite

savagely with the full backing of their white

supremacist, committed colonialist and

comprehensively full of their own

self-endowed immunity and

impunity - brutally forced the entire

indigenous Black population of

Zimbabwe into a hazardous

condition of subservient

impecuniousness and

a quite deliberately

racially created

and effective



But your own personal dignity, cherished morality

and an undiminished sense of freedom, Robert

Mugabe, instinctively knew these white

racist actions to be wrong. And so

you selflessly, commendably

and defiantly �" and on these matters I’m

absolutely sure that every unbiased

person will wholeheartedly and

unanimously agree �" put your

very life and future on the

line both for and also to

uncompromisingly re-establish the dignity plus

the sovereignty of the Zimbabwean people,

a mission that you vastly achieved. And

even without your unfortunate death

Robert Mugabe, there is neither a

single fair-minded nor frankly

an honest person, currently

or else in the future, who

can or will ever want

to disbelieve your

amazing legacy.

Author’s Remarks:

For me, personally, Robert Mugabe was undoubtedly, still is, and will forever unalterably remain a hero in every conceivable positive etymological meaning of that word. Furthermore, intensive and analytical research by me have both extensively and categorically shown that my deeply embedded sentiments regarding this incomparably great man are likewise shared by millions of people not only in Robert Mugabe’s indigenous homeland of Zimbabwe, the continent of Africa generally and the wider African Diaspora on both sides of the Atlantic, but also among other non-racist, fair-minded and non-Black populations globally.


Longevity, thankfully, has been kind to this inimitable man and superb human being. He was 95 years old when he died on the 6 September 2019. But even so, with his actual and rather unfortunate passing he’ll still be sorely missed, I know, by people like me. And quite rightly so. However, I’m absolutely confident that his most impressive and revolutionary legacy will actively live on in the hearts and minds of current and future generations of Black and other races who both cherish and stand up for the inalienable rights of all human beings, as Robert Mugabe did, eternally.


With your work on earth now completed, rest in eternal peace my Black Brother and Hero! And my sincerest condolences to your widow Grace, your family members and your many comrades in arms against racist injustice and the systematic subjugation of African people.
