Zanu-PF calls Mugabe’s UN speech a ‘masterpiece’
The Zimbabwean president addressed the UN General Assembly on Monday.
ZIMBABWE: Zimbabwe's ruling party has hailed President Robert Mugabe's speech to the United Nations on Monday, calling it a 'masterpiece'.
In his speech, Mugabe slammed attempts by some countries to enforce gay rights on weaker nations.
In his congratulatory statement, Zanu-PF spokesman Simon Khaya-Moyo described the Zimbabwean president's speech at the UN General Assembly as a 'free lecture' to the West.
He says, what he calls, the 'bullies of the world' must have trembled at Mugabe's words.
On Monday, Mugabe said Africa wasn't looking for hand-outs, but rather for economic partners.
He also slammed what he called 'self-anointed prefects' who victimise countries who think differently to them.
Mugabe says his country rejects attempts to prescribe 'new rights' that go against local values, in a reference to gay rights.
