NOTR - The Jesuits & The Coup Against Robert Mugabe - 11.20.17


It now appears that Marxist dictator, Robert Mugabe, after more than thirty years in power is to be ousted by the very men who helped him take control of the country decades ago.   The trouble is said to have begun because of Mugabe's wife and her ambitions to claim control of the government after her husband.  But could there be other forces at work?  Back in 2002, the Jesuits in Zimbabwe issued a declaration against Mugabe (who was their former pupil), comparing him to Hitler.  It also turns out that the dictator has a Jesuit counselor who once worked as an informant for him during the war against the Rhodesian government, and has continued as his advisor throughout his time in power.  He is now the same priest who is currently "leading the mediations" to ensure the "peaceful exit" of Mugabe from office.
