Britain, US, Netherlands, Germany back violence in Zimbabwe: Mugabe

Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe accused Western nations of ganging together to sponsor “violence and terrorism” in the southern African country. Mugabe was reacting for the first time to the two-day mass strike organised by the opposition against his government. He said he had instructed the law enforcing agents to “react and react promptly and with vigour”. “The money used to organise the pretended stayaway, to pay our youths to self-destruct, to turn them into career purveyors of violence, came from the so-called democracies of the West. “It came from Britain, from the United States of America, from countries like Holland and Germany through their ostensibly humanitarian or civic organisations.” “All these nations were united in sponsoring violence here,” Mugabe said at a public funeral for the country’s Higher Education Minister Swithun Mombershora, who died suddenly at his home on Monday. The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) called a two-day national work stoppage this week to protest the worsening socio-economic and political conditions in the country. Full Story
