I went to elementary school very close to the house of pre-president Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe. I remember high walls and soldiers with a bayonet in front of the iron gates. Every class had a photographic portrait of him on the wall. The portrait was a heroic icon representing the independence of Rhodesia. Needless to say, today Mr. Mugabe is well known for different reasons.
