Cape Town – African diplomats in China have reportedly hailed Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe as a true son of Africa, during his week-long visit to that country.

According to The Herald, the ambassadors describe Mugabe as an African statesman who stood up to challenge the West despite the imposition of sanctions on the country.

Mugabe is in China to secure more investment in his country's ailing economy.

According to NewZimbabwe.com, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Tuesday promised that China will continue to support development in Zimbabwe and Africa.

Mugabe, on the other hand, vowed to expand bilateral co-operation and to enhance the two sides' communication and co-ordination on global and regional affairs.

Meanwhile, Reuters reported on Tuesday that Chinese President Xi Jinping and Mugabe signed several co-operation deals.

The two presidents signed several deals, including on food, finance and tourism, the report said.
