post-mugabe zimbabwe will be someone else's fiefdom | robert mugabe


for long in zimbabwe's politics, the military has been the decisive force keeping president robert mugabe in power. in early november, it proved yet again that it is the kingmaker of zimbabwean politics, thwarting first lady grace mugabe's plans to take over from her husband.the influence that the army has exerted over the past decades has shaped zimbabwe's regime into a neopatrimonial, personalistic, military oligarchy, with a primary role of keeping mugabe and zanu-pf in power. after mugabe's resignation, the generals seem intent on introducing another member of the oligarchy into the presidency - most likely former vice president, emmerson mnangagwa.but whoever takes over the reins of power in zimbabwe is unlikely to change the status quo. the regime and its many clients (including the
