Zimbabwe’s Mugabe Criticizes Sweden
Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has criticized Sweden’s Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt for being arrogant.
Speaking at the EU-Africa-Summit held in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, Mugabe pointed out that Sweden alongside with Germany, Denmark and The Netherlands was acting hostile toward Zimbabwe. Mugabe referred to the fact that the four European governments have repeatedly taken up the human rights issue in Zimbabwe blaming the president for ruining his own country.
Reinfeldt said he was “honored” to be named by Mugabe in such a negative way as this proved Sweden’s efforts to fight for human rights.
