Robert Mugabe Mocks and Refers Nelson Mandela As An Idiot and Coward


Zimbabwe’s President
Robert Mugabe blasted
Nelson Mandela as a
“coward” and “idiot”
during a rally today to
celebrate Mugabe’s record
seventh term in office
following his victory in the
country’s disputed
elections last week.
In one of his trademark
fiery speeches, the 89-
year-old Mugabe — who
has led the southern
African country since 1980
— claimed that he should be

hailed as an African hero
instead of Mandela, the
anti-apartheid icon and
former president of
neighboring South Africa.
“My huge victory in these
elections prove I am the
greatest leader in the
history of Africa,” Mugabe
told supporters in
Zimbabwe’s capital, Harare.
“I have spent my whole life
fighting for the Zimbabwean
people and they continue to
elect me.”
Mugabe tightened his iron
grip on power in last
week’s elections after he
received 61 percent of the
vote while his ZANU-PF
party won a two-thirds
majority in parliament,
though there are
allegations of widespread
fraud and violence against
the opposition.
“I am the greatest African
who has ever lived,”
Mugabe said. “The world
should love me more than
the idiot Nelson Mandela.
F**k Nelson Mandela. As I
waged war against
colonialism, that coward sat
on his ass in prison for 27
years. He’s a coward.
“I have been leader for 33
years. Mandela was
president for five years.
What kind of idiot gives up
political power? Great
leaders like me know how
to stay in power.
“While Mandela sits
comfortably in a hospital, I
stand before you fit and
healthy, ready to lead this
country and the
Zimbabwean people for at
least another 25 years,”
Mugabe added, referring to
the 95-year-old Mandela’s
ongoing treatment for a
lung condition.
Mugabe also mocked South
Africa’s multicultural
“rainbow nation” in his
speech, claiming that
Mandela didn’t care about
the interests of black
Africans.
“There is only one color
allowed in Zimbabwe, and it
is black,” he said. “I
banned the color white in
my country. Nelson Mandela
told all the white people to
stay in his ridiculous
rainbow nation. He should
have thrown all of the
whites and homosexuals
out of his country like I did.
South Africa would be so
much better off.”
The Lord of Misrule
Mandela served as South
Africa’s president from
1994 to 1999 and is highly
regarded at home and
worldwide for his role in
ending apartheid and
becoming the country’s first
democratically elected
leader.
Similar to Mandela, Mugabe
played a pivotal role in the
struggle for black-majority
rule against the white
minority-controlled
Rhodesia, which became
Zimbabwe.
In recent years, however,
Mugabe and his
government have plunged
the country into diplomatic
and economic isolation due
to corruption, authoritarian
rule, political violence and
human rights abuses.
Mugabe drew international
condemnation in particular
over his land redistribution
policies, in which
prosperous commercial
farmers were chased off
their land by violent mobs.
South Africa, which borders
Zimbabwe, has pursued a
policy of silent diplomacy
with Mugabe, appeasing him
in public while supposedly
criticizing him in private.
South Africa’s President
Jacob Zuma, who
congratulated Mugabe on
his presidential victory,
said he would review
Mugabe’s remarks before
making an official statement.
