Mugabe slams countries which fail to condemn Israeli attacks on Gaza

The President of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe has strenuously condemned nations which “claim to be defenders of democracy” but are silent about the Israeli shelling of the Gaza Strip.

The remarks came during Mugabe’s speech in front of the Summit of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), held in Victoria Falls yesterday.

“These are the same nations which impose sanctions on Zimbabwe and seek to subjugate the African continent,” he said.

The ministerial conference of the SADC issued a statement on July 25 condemning the Israeli offensive on Gaza and the killing of innocent civilians.
