Zim media praises 'steadfast' Mugabe
Zim media praises 'steadfast' Mugabe

Zimbabwe's state media has praised President Robert Mugabe's "intellectual clarity" and "ideological steadfastness" after he celebrated his 91st birthday.

Cape Town - Zimbabwean Vice President Joice Mujuru has urged Zimbabweans and political parties to exercise tolerance and reject violence in the run-up to the country’s constitution referendum and elections, the state owned Herald online reported on Friday.

"The country is in the process of finalising the drafting of our constitution, which is going to be followed by a referendum and general elections.

"These processes are vital in affording our people the opportunity to voice their opinion and as such, we should shun all forms of violence," said Mujuru.

The country's finance minister Tendayi Biti recently told lawmakers that work on the draft of a new constitution had been finalised more than three years after the process started.

A new constitution is a key condition of reforms agreed in 2008 when President Robert Mugabe was forced into a power-sharing deal with his arch-rival Morgan Tsvangirai to avoid a descent into conflict after a violent presidential election.
