London [United Kingdom], November 26 (ANI): Former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace Mugabe will receive million of dollars as part of a deal negotiated before the resignation of the ageing autocrat last week.
Mugabe would receive a "cash payment of $5m" immediately, with more paid in coming months.
The 93-year-old's $150,000 salary will also be paid until his death.
Reviled for her extravagance and greed, the 52-year-old first lady, will then receive half that amount for the rest of her life.
Mugabe resigned on Tuesday after 37 years in power.
Former vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa has been sworn-in as the president of the country, thus beginning a new era for the long-troubled nation.(ANI)
