Mugabe shrugs off concerns over AU-West relations
Mugabe shrugs off concerns over AU-West relations

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has shrugged off concerns that his appointment as new African Union chairman will harm relations between the pan-African bloc and the West.

Cape Town - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has reportedly showered Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe with praise, saying there was no land reform system that had worked successfully for Africa other than Zimbabwe's land reform programme.

Speaking during a media conference in Johannesburg, Malema said in the next 20 years Zimbabwe would be the only African country where people owned their own land, according to a Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation report.

Malema said the Zimbabwean policy on land reform was a lesson to be learnt from and to be implemented in South Africa, “except the initial violent method of attacking white people or attacking each other”.

According to an Eyewitness News report, Malema said although Zimbabweans may be hungry and poor today, they could be proud of the fact that they owned property while South Africans had nothing to show as proof that they belonged to South Africa.

The EEF leader said Western powers were attacking Zimbabwe to scare South Africans from engaging in any agrarian reform.

He said the result of Zimbabwe's 2013 elections was scientific evidence that the people of Zimbabwe were happy about the land reform, particularly the rural masses who now had access to land.
