Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has accused the ‘imperialist’ West of seeking his ouster via the imposition of sanctions and creation of a dictator’s image of him.

Speaking to CNN on Thursday ahead of his speech at the UN General Assembly, Robert Mugabe lashed out at the US and the UK for the placing economic sanctions on the sub-Saharan country, exacerbating Zimbabwean drought which has turned the so-called breadbasket of Africa into a state with food problems.

The 85-year-old leader depicted himself as a pioneer on the anti-imperialism front and charged the West with implicating him of authoritarianism.

He also rejected economic and power-sharing predicaments in Zimbabwe and blamed the Western economic embargoes for opposition in the South African state.

Below are the interviews split into two parts.

  • Mike

    Mugabe has ruined Zimbabwe and the fool still cannot see it

  • guest

    listen to the interview again mate…whilst the man is not completely innocent of blame. he has got a point clearly highlighted by the interviewers lack of understanding of the zimbabwe situation…. this makes her come of as very insense
    tive, she obviously based her questions on the one sided stories she hears in the states.

  • scorpio

    The questions that should be asked are
    1) What has neccessitated power sharing
    2)Are white Zimbabweans , Zimbabweans and if so do they have the same rights
    3)Why not resign instead of letting the country collapse inspite of sanctions
    4)why is the west against Zim and Africa behind Zim
    5)At what age should one retire or after how long can a president call it in???
