Robert Mugabe is a worthless monster who ruined Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe was known as the "breadbasket of Africa" and was going to transform the continent before him. Now it's only known for militias and starvation.

I find it sad that anybody can draw up a list like this. The only thing that changes from year to year is some of the names.
