The Priest continued by saying Mugabe stepped down for the welfare of the Zimbabwean people.

The somewhat unbelievable claims were made in an interview with state media in Zimbabwe.

The claims followed reports last week that the Mugabe family is depressed in their multi-million-rand mansion, known as the ‘Blue Roof’.

Thus, Fidelis Mukonori’s version of how Robert Mugabe's face radiated happiness after agreeing to resign will be doubted by many.

However, the narration given by the Catholic priest of what happened at the notorious ‘Blue Roof’ contains some fascinating details.

Eyewitness News reported that according to Mukonori, the days leading up to Mugabe’s resignation, he worked up to 16 hours daily.
