Mugabe is only protecting his countries legacy and his own ideology. That is why he is holding onto power until he can find someone just like himself.

The 84-year-old Mugabe is in a desperate election fight with opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai. He accuses Tsvangirai, who bested him in the first round of presidential voting in March, of being a puppet of Britain and the U.S.
