Zimbabwe is mine: Mugabe
President Robert Mugabe said Friday that “Zimbabwe is mine” and vowed never to surrender, saying no African nation was brave enough to topple him.
Responding to an American envoy’s call on Thursday to step down, the latest of many such calls from around the globe, Mr. Mugabe said: “I will never, never sell my country. I will never, never, never surrender. Zimbabwe is mine, I am a Zimbabwean, Zimbabwe for Zimbabweans.”
Mr. Mugabe, 84, who has held power for 28 years, has been in stalled power-sharing talks with the opposition for three months amid an economic and political meltdown. In the latest effort to keep pace with stratospheric inflation, the central bank introduced a new note on Friday worth 10 billion Zimbabwean dollars.
