Guess which African leader reportedly said the following:
I want to retire from politics. I have had enough. I am also a writer and would like to concentrate on writing after this term of office is over.... I don't think I will miss a successor. Out of 30 million people, there must be a capable person to take over after me and he will be the chosen one.
The answer: Robert Mugabe, who says he really really wants to quit and hand over the reins of power. In fact, he wants to retire so much that he's going to do it in four years. Well, maybe five if he has writer's block. posted by daudi • link: Saturday, May 15, 2004
