Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe did not disappoint journalists Friday when he answered questions about the recent Zimbabwean elections and long-standing sanctions.
According to Times Reporter Golden Matonga Western sanctions sparked a familiar outburst from Mugabe.
“Do you know what the West is like, they want to think for us and take decisions for us and even direct us as to which way we want to go, what we decide as the correct course and correct decision.
They by and large, will not agree with that unless there was that charted path or those decisions are in their interests. It is always their own interests.
“In this particular case, it is Robert Mugabe they don’t like, but Robert Mugabe happens to be a Zimbabwean, an African, and a friend of Malawi. I have nothing to do with the British, nothing to do with Americans. Those are always their decisions and we take our own decisions as Africans,” said Mugabe.
Also arriving for the Sadc Summit was Tanzanian president Jakaya Kikwete but the issue of the Malawi Lake dispute was not tackled. He said he was delighted to be in Malawi for the summit as it was essential for regional integration when asked by an MBC journalist.
