Mugabe blasts Mandela

Johannesburg – 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, The Sunday Independent reported.
“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.
