Mugabe Blast Mandela’s White Sympathy

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has blasted former president Nelson Mandela’s reconciliation policies, and has labelled him “too much of a saint” in a television interview.

“Mandela has gone a bit too far in doing good to the non-black communities, really in some cases at the expense of [blacks]…,” Mugabe reportedly told talk show host Dali Tambo in an interview.

“That is being too saintly, too good, too much of a saint,” he said.

The interview, filmed for Tambo’s show People of the South, would be aired next Sunday, the newspaper reported.

According to The Sunday Independent , the interview included footage of the Mugabe family and interviews with Mugabe’s wife Grace at a dairy farm.

Tambo filmed the interview in Zimbabwe before Christmas and showed the family the final edit in Harare last weekend.
