He moans about being in prison. He moans about being beaten up. He moans about his Lawyer. He moans
about the people who hired him to stage the coup.
Prison life in
Zim CIO aren’t the brightest tools in the box but they are well known for being ruthless. He is lucky he was only beaten up and not tortured, raped or even killed.
His lawyer is well known and is one of the best in Zim. For 4 years his lawyer visited him once a week. 3 times a week (for 4 years) his lawyer sent him food and cigarettes to use as payment for protection etc.. yet he calls his lawyer the “croc” and moans about having to pay him.
He expected the people who hired him to stage the coup to come up with some sort of escape plan to get him out of prison and was really angry when they didn’t and even more angry when they denied all knowledge of it.
When he was extradited to EG he was treated like some sort of celebrity. While the others lived in shackles and had no food or medicine he was given a treadmill, hotel food once a day and had two hernia operations.
It is rumored that he paid half a million pounds to get out of Black Beach Prison. Where that money came from we will never know but I certainly don't feel any pity for him.
