I Agree With Mugabe, Zim Is 'Mischaracterised'

Mugabe, whose health has been weakening, declared that the country he has ruled since 1980 is the most developed on the continent after South Africa.

"Zimbabwe is the most highly developed country in Africa after South Africa".

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe on Thursday denied that his country was a "failed state", insisting that it was a well-resourced country, and instead took a shot at the United States.

"We have resources, perhaps more resources than (any) other country in the world", he said.

Twitter responded to his remarks in customary Twitter style: memes. "You can also call America fragile".

MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai, through his spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka, said he had been shocked at the level of Mugabe's disconnect from reality.

"We discussed the issue of the situation in the country, the success of the World Economic Forum now and also about the need for us to meet more often, particularly the former liberation movements".

"We are not too sure whether..." But Mugabe, sitting on a panel at the WEF, dismissed the idea that Zimbabwe is in a fragile state.

The presence of President Mugabe does not in any way benefit the country in these global forums.

"Over 75% of our people are living in extreme poverty, 70% use the bush as toilets and our debt is over 43% of gross domestic product". Reports by the statistical service show that 48 percent of the population is educated with over 40 percent of graduates unemployed or under-employed. We can't be fragile country.

Ironically, his admission that Zimbabwe has resources in abundance fits into the "resource curse" description which says that countries with an abundance of natural resources tend to have less economic growth, less democracy, and worse development outcomes than those with fewer natural resources.

"And Mugabe is responsible for this and he has to accept it", he said.
