Can we pray for someone to die?

I've been mulling over whether I should pray that Robert Mugabe be killed somehow. The man's actions have led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands and led to massive poverty in the country he is running. In many ways he is your typical African dictator - corrupt, despotic and completely incompetent.

Given the situation, and taking into consideration that God may not save him despite our prayers for his conversion, is it right to pray for his death?
