Zimbobwe | 1980 - 2017
Bobcat Mewgabe, the former president of Zimbobwe, clawed his way to power with his cunning and ruthlessness. His authoritarian dictatorship lasted for over 37 years, characterized by the purrsecution of his purrlitical opponents, journalists, and activists who dared challenge his authority. Bobcat was notorious for his insatiable appetite for corruption, often making shady deals to enrich him and his cronies while his subjects struggled to find their next meal thanks to rampant food shortages.
Under Bobcat’s rule, Zimbobwe experienced a catastrophic economic tailspin, with hyperinflated prices and rampant unemployment leaving many chasing their own tails in frustration. His ruthless land seizures from catnip farmers left the economy in tatters and his regime’s human rights abuses were the talk of the litterbox. Mewgabe’s dictatorial rule drew many outcries from the international community, but his iron paw never relented as he lapped up the attention while continuing to muzzle dissent.
Bobcat Mewgabe has left Zimbarkwe’s state of affairs in catastrophic shape as they still recover from purrlitical instability, corruption, and economic struggles. Despite his removal from power in 2017, the pawprints of his rule serve as a pawful reminder of the dangers of unchecked dictators and the need for vigilant protection of democratic values and rights for all.

ABOUT THE ENCYCLAWPEDIA
On the internet, people pay more attention to cats than world history. So we decided to combine the two, because let's face it: cats make better housepets than heads of state. Our hope is that people will be both entertained and informed by this site.
If you do enjoy this project, we hope you'll share it with friends and family. We also hope you'll donate to our fundraiser for Amnesty International. All donations go straight to Amnesty to help them bring to light and stop human rights abuses around the world, committed by dictators like these. Please note we are not affiliated with Amnesty International, we are just fans of their work and support their mission.
