The President of Zimbabwe, His Excellency Emmerson Mnangagwa praised the late former President Robert Mugabe on the second anniversary of his death.

In a statement, Mnangagwa said Mugabe was a principled man who would never compromise on what was right and just for his people.

“Quite often he would remind us about what the late Kwame Nkrumah said about adherence to principle. He said principles should never be sacrifice on the altar of expediency,” said Mnangagwa.

“Our inaugural President of the Republic, taught us that right is might, challenging the great powers of the world that espoused the doctrine of might is right. Our late leader would always invoke one of the key tenets of the United Nations Charter which asserts the sovereign equality of Nations,” he added.

Robert Mugabe died on 6th September 2017.
