Mugabe denounces ‘evil’ US, EU

via Mugabe denounces ‘evil’ US, EU 25/09/2014

PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe told the United Nations on Thursday his country is the target of “evil” actions that are hurting its economy and people as the West seeks to oust him.

Mugabe said for daring to empower her people, Zimbabwe “has become a victim of the evil machinations of Western countries, namely the United States of America and the European Union, who continue to apply unilateral and illegal sanctions” as a tool to achieve regime change.

The US and EU sanctions imposed on Zimbabwean state firms, as well as travel restrictions on Mugabe and dozens of his associates, were initially a response to a violent 2000 election and the sometimes violent seizures of white-owned commercial farms for black resettlement.

The veteran leader demanded the immediate and unconditional lifting of the sanctions in his annual address to the 193-nation assembly..

He said: “Why, I ask, should Zimbabweans continue to suffer under the yoke of unjustified and unwarranted illegal sanctions?

“These evil sanctions violate the fundamental principles of the United Nations Charter and should be condemned by the international community. We once again call for their immediate and unconditional removal.

“We are a peaceful and peace-loving nation, ready to engage in constructive dialogue for mutually beneficial relations.

“We call on those who continue to harbour ill will against us to cast away their hegemony-driven hostility as we appeal to them to review their hard positions and open a new chapter in their relations with us based on mutual respect and friendly cooperation.

The Zanu PF leader overwhelmingly won an election last year but his main rival, Morgan Tsvangirai, denounced the poll as a “huge fraud.”

Mugabe, 90, has ruled Zimbabwe since independence from Britain in 1980. He however believes the former coloniser is working to force him out of power and regain control of the country.

“Regime change is a diabolical illegal policy of interference in the domestic issues of my country,” he said.

“No good can come from undermining our economy, or depriving our citizens of the necessities of life.”

Mugabe, southern Africa’s most prominent surviving liberation hero, was not invited last month to a Washington summit of African presidents hosted by U.S. President Barack Obama that looked to rekindle U.S.-Africa ties.

Britain and the United States tried unsuccessfully to persuade the U.N. Security Council in 2008 to expand the U.S. and European sanctions on Mugabe and other officials by making them binding for all U.N. member states. But Russia and China, backed by South Africa, used their veto to block the move.

    Mugabe ‘demanded’ hahaha so he thinks they will be scared by his demands.Why would the US and EU want to take over the country?

    “No good can come from undermining our economy, or depriving our citizens of the necessities of life.” so he goes to lecture this to the UN instead of applying it home

    He has driven millions of Zimbabweans away from home jopining those other evil countries in Africa whose people drown tring to cross to Europe for a better life. For those that cry the Mugabe mantra of Africa for Africans should look to help their fellow man and stop their racist agenda of discrimination. Africa and Africans must wake up, get educated and learn decency towards each other. I tire of seeing this dog eat dog and cat eat cat attitude that Muagbe has created.

    RGM should just shut up. He makes a complete fool of himself. He should look at the evil he has presided over before pointing fingers. Judgment comes

    Mugabe – forever grandstanding to stroke his own ego as a globally important figure.
    Rude, crude and self-absorbed. This man was never leadership material.

    There is no law and order in Zimbabwe. Sanctions should be increased until democracy and justice returns. Mugabe should have been arrested and taken to The Hague as other brutal Afrivan dictators have for crimes against humanity.

    Like the old broken record he is, we knew Mugabe would regurgitate the same old vile vomit.He clearly has nothing new or progressive to offer. He raves and rants like the old clueless denialist that he is. The only peolpe who will be hailing his ranting as a masterpiece speech are the same numbskulls who sing his praises while their shacks get demolished in the poor Townships and their wives give birth on the floor of the matenity ward. While Mugabe and his Ho shop to their heart’s content these people eke a living panning for gold or begging.

    Mugabe not sanctions have destroyed this country. His insatiable greed, corrupt Government his Ho and now his children’s greed have brought us here.

    His speech at the UN brings the country into deeper disrepute. On the bright side, all North Koreans will be told to believe his every word.
