Solution

The correct option is C (A) is true but (R) is false
Robert Mugabe made several amendments to the Constitution that would give greater power to the President. He illegalised criticising the President. He criminalised public protests against the government, and exercised full control over the media. The Zimbabwean army finally forced Mugabe to step down in 2017.
