Zimbabwean president threatens to expel US, UK diplomats

World Bulletin / News Desk

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has threatened to expel Western diplomats for allegedly inciting anarchy in the southern African country, state media reported this week.

“Misbehave and we will kick you in your bottom,” Mugabe, 91, said on national television. “What demons are these people that they come here and cause problems? We do not need the United States and British ambassadors.” 

Mugabe’s comments came at the opening of the Small to Medium Enterprises International Expo in Harare.

He added that Britain and the United States were sponsoring vendors to disregard calls by the government to leave the streets and operate at designated areas.

Relations between Zimbabwe and the West have been strained since 2002 when Mugabe was slapped with sanctions following allegations of human rights abuses and election rigging.
