He joined the National Democratic Party in 1960, which was reformed as the Zimbabwe African Peoples Union (ZAPU). He split off to join the Zimbabwe African National Union (ZANU) in 1963. Imprisoned in 1964, he served 10 years before being released in 1974 along with leader Joshua Nkomo.Mugabe then went to fight in neigbouring Mozambique for Black Africans emerging as a hero at the end of the war in 1979. In the 1980 Zimbabwe General election, he became Prime Minister of Zimbabwe by calling for reconciliation between whites and blacks. A rift developed between Mugabe and Nkomo, and bitter fighting was felt throughout the country from 1982 to 1987. On 1987 December 31 Robert Mugabe made himself President of Zimbabwe, abolished the Prime Minister position, made Nkomo Vice-president, and merged their parties, creating a one-party state.Mugabe has continued to act as dictator president for the last 23 years. In 2008, parliamentary and presidential elections were held. Mugabe ended up losing the first round to Morgan Tsavangiri, but through military intimidation, the withdrawl of Tsavangiri due to lack of faith in the process, and blatant electoral fraud, Mugabe was awarded a landslide victory. In 2013, Mugabe was re-elected over Tsavangiri again 61.09% to 33.94% again with many charges of corruption in the election process.
