Mugabe's chiding remarks 'misguided'

2012-09-14 07:52

Kingston - Jamaica's prime minister says remarks by Zimbabwe's leader disparaging the Caribbean island's men were "grossly unfortunate, misguided and untrue".

Portia Simpson Miller issued her statement on Thursday, more than a week after President Robert Mugabe painted Jamaican men as chronic drunkards and unambitious pot smokers during a speech at a university in his African nation.

She said the foreign affairs ministry first had to make "exhaustive checks" to corroborate Mugabe's September  5 remarks at the University of Zimbabwe.

Simpson Miller did not call for Mugabe to make an apology, as the opposition had demanded. Instead, she said Jamaica was confident Mugabe's comments "do not represent the sentiments of Zimbabwe" or anywhere else and should be dismissed.

Mugabe said Jamaican "men were always drunk" only "want to sing," and "do not go to colleges".

      Mugabe said Jamaican "men were always drunk" only "want to sing," and "do not go to colleges". How is that different to here?

    All hail the great vampire emperor Mugabe! He will rule for another 1000 years and will not stop until he has sucked every last drop of life from the poor citizens of Zimbabwe. Hunger, pestilence, marauding gangs of rapists and murderers and, dare I say, cannibals will soon become commonplace in the country.

      ha ha ha you have mentioned everything that is going on in south africa lol u are retarted

      fred.warren.986 - 2012-09-14 14:54

      @isaac....I agree with you, the ANC, just like Zanu-PF is destroying the country fast. Soon we South Africans will be in the same situation as you guys. The only advantage that we had, is that we had Apartheid to protect us from the natives. Now that the last bastion of civilization has been removed, South Africa will soon too return to its pre-colonial state.

    "Simpson Miller did not call for Mugabe to make an apology... Mugabe's comments "do not represent the sentiments of Zimbabwe" or anywhere else and should be dismissed" Such an excellent way of dealing with an old senile man. As for Mugabe what did we expect?

  • amere.kwangwa - 2012-09-14 11:23

    Whats wrong wth u pple! Somtimes we want Leaders to say the truth! Mugabe did this! Who doesnt no Jamaicans? Next u hear a Jamaican musician in twn attend the show'mbanje chete' mdhara tel them the truth! Wen Joshuwa Nkomo admited his son died of Aids u blamed him again bt nw u mak mo noise of Aids! Leaders must say the truth at any cost! Leav Bob alone no apology! Change ur atitude ok

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-14 12:57

      Amere.kwangwa. Another brain dead member of his audience?. I wish you could spend time in Jamaica. they all have food, music and pot, beautiful girls and beautiful beaches. Nothing wrong with the island of giving. Leaders never tell the truth, they always tell you a pack of lies. So stop being a naive child and grow up.

  • bob.slap.5 - 2012-09-14 11:37

    so he thinks his son is the same 'Malema'

  • pyn.appel - 2012-09-14 12:36

    I wonder if the outcome would have been the same "Simpson Miller did not call for Mugabe to make an apology" if the comment was made by a white person !?!?! I hate to make race destinctions but black leaders get away with unacceptable remarks way too often.

  • jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-09-14 12:52

    They should take into consideration that his audience is brain dead. They should also take into consideration that he has lost his last brain cell many years ago and thus, he too, is brain dead.

  • samuel.herman.758 - 2012-09-14 13:20

    Shame, how random. What does Jamaica have to do with anything. The syphilis have really fried his brain. Bob, do us all a favour and die.

  • Douglas Sithole - 2012-09-14 18:30
