ROBERT MUGABE SAYS THE DARNEST THINGS



Written by Fin Murphy

In the aftermath of the bitterly contested Zimbabwean presidential election, of which Robert Mugabe has won his seventh term, Mugabe has hit out at critics by saying that 'even dogs will not eat their flesh when they die.'

It's the latest rhetorical flourish from a man well known for a memorable quote. Here's a rundown.

“This Hitler has only one objective: justice for his people, sovereignty for his people, recognition of the independence of his people and their rights over their resources. If that is Hitler, then let me be Hitler tenfold. Ten times, that is what we stand for.”

"I have died many times. I have actually beaten Jesus Christ because he only died once."

"Don't drink at all, don't smoke, you must exercise and eat vegetables and fruit."

"I would like to [retire], sure. As long as I am assured that those we fought yesterday are thoroughly beaten and that the carpet they now stand on, the economic carpet, has been removed from their feet and it has become our carpet."

"Morgan Tsvangirai is an ambitious frog ... as long as Morgan will be used by the British he will be a frog."

"I will never, never, never never surrender. Zimbabwe is mine, I am a Zimbabwean. Zimbabwe for Zimbabweans. Zimbabwe never for the British, Britain for the British."

"Cricket civilises people and creates good gentlemen. I want everyone to play cricket in Zimbabwe; I want ours to be a nation of gentlemen."

"Let the MDC and its leadership be warned that those who play with fire will not only be burnt, but consumed by that fire."
