Robert Mugabe Net Worth
Robert Mugabe Net Worth: Robert Mugabe is a Zimbabwean revolutionary and politician who has a net worth of $20 million. Born February 21, 1924 in Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia (now Harare, Zimbabwe), Robert Mugabe is the current President of Zimbabwe. Although many people in Southern Rhodesia went only as far as grammar school, Mugabe was fortunate enough to receive a good education. He attended school at the local Jesuit mission under the supervision of school director Father O'Hea, who turned out to be a powerful influence on the boy. O'Hea taught Mugabe that all people should be treated equally and educated to the fulfillment of their abilities. Mugabe's teachers, who called him "a clever lad," were early to recognize his abilities as considerable. By 1953, he had earned his Bachelor of Education degree through correspondence courses and in 1955 Mugabe moved to Northern Rhodesia where he taught for four years at Chalimbana Training College while also working toward his Bachelor of Science degree in economics through correspondence courses with the University of London. In 1960, Mugabe was elected public secretary of the National Democratic Party. In accordance with Ghanaian models, Mugabe quickly assembled a militant youth league to spread the word about achieving black independence in Rhodesia. In 1963, the police arrested Mugabe for his participation in the resistance movement and sent him to Hwahwa Prison where he remained for over a decade. Mugabe later escaped back across the border to Southern Rhodesia, assembling a troop of Rhodesian guerilla trainees along the way. By 1980, Southern Rhodesia was liberated from British rule and became the independent Republic of Zimbabwe and Mugabe was almost simultaneously elected President of Zimbabwe.
