As a rebel leader Robert Mugabe opposed White Minority rule. He was elected Prime Minister in 1980, serving in that office as head of the government until 1987, when he became the country's first executive head of state. He has led the Zimbabwe African National Union Patriotic Front (Zanu-PF) since 1975. As of August 2016, he is the world's oldest and one of the longest serving Head of State. His 36-year rule has been characterized by gross human rights violations; resulting in his joining the world list of dictators.
