I'd say vaguely good as he was certainly better than his colonial predecessors but he made some pretty huge missteps.

Look at the state of Zimbabwe. This man is nothing but a tin pot business dictator.

Dagoth, this is the second time I find myself disagreeing with you. Maybe my history is a bit sketchy here, but as I recall the 'colonial predecessors' you mention did not intimidate and, if that failed, murder innocent farmers simply because they weren't 'black'. Mugabe is, and always was, a despot, and the fact that he may have thought of himself as being a 'Marxist' at one stage only makes his behaviour all the more difficult to understand.
