Questions about my resignation will anger Zimbabweans - Mugabe
Mugabe says that if he’s not fit enough in 2 years time, he won't stand for elections.
ZIMBABWE - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has told journalists on a state visit to Japan that Zimbabweans wouldn't like questions over whether he should step down.
Mugabe has been in power since 1980.
This was a strong putdown from Mugabe on the third day of his state visit to Japan.
He said if anyone didn't like his long stay in power, they should criticise the Zimbabwean people.
He told journalists in Tokyo that if they went to Zimbabwe and asked people whether he should stand down, they would get angry.
The comments have been reproduced in Zimbabwe's state media today.
Mugabe also said that if he's not fit enough in two years time, he won't stand for the presidential elections.
