Stop criticising Mandela, you destroyed your country's economy: ANC tells Mugabe
Gwede Mantashe the secretary-general of the African National Congress (ANC) has slammed President Robert Mugabe for the ” unwarranted and extremely unfortunate” attack on the legacy of South Africa’s first president Nelson Mandela. This comes after Mugabe said that Mandela said that Mandela had forgotten why he was put in prison by deferring to white interests. Said Mantashe:
We must prove the lies of the statements made among others by the President of Zimbabwe that the policies of the ANC made black South Africans paupers.
Independent research states as proof of the work that has been done to create better lives for the majority of South Africans.
This morning, I phoned the secretary-general (sic) of Zanu PF and I said to him, your President is all over Madiba, but the reality of the matter is you have destroyed the economy in your country, we continue to create black millionaires in this country including Zimbabwean millionaires.
So if you are adventurous and popular you can do anything, consequences are for others to correct. The attack on Nelson Mandela by President Mugabe is unwarranted and extremely unfortunate.
