Former South African President Thabo Mbeki praised former President of Zimbabwe the late Robert Mugabe on Tuesday and trashed Beitish colonialists for attempting to overthrow him.

Mbeki was speaking at a Robert Mugabe Memorial held on South Africa on Tuesday afternoon by the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal.

Mbeki praised Mugabe for his principled stance against neo-colonialism.

“The late President Mugabe was tried and tested African patriot and pan-Africanist, which is why we would never allow anyone to come from London and decide who should lead Zimbabwe,” Mbeki said, referring to a period the UK and its allies applied pressure on Mugabe to leave office at the height of the land reform progam.

“President Mugabe was very principled, very brave, and a defender of nations of the South. That is why many people in the world wanted him gone, but to us he was a Comrade, our hero, and we’re very proud of his stance against external interference in Zimbabwe’s domestic affairs.”

Zimbabwe Voice recalled that Mbeki in 2008 helped broker a government of national unity between the Zanu-PF then led by the late Mugabe and the opposition MDC-M led by Arthur Mutambara and the MDC-T then led by Morgan Tsvangirai, now late.
