Speaking as a panelist on the discussion titled, "Eye on fragile states", President Mugabe insisted that his country is not in any fragile state but among many with respective challenges.
According to South African News24, Mugabe made a surprise appearance on a morning panel on fragile States that was held yesterday in Durban and he shared the stage with the likes of American actor Forest Whitaker, Unesco Special Envoy for Peace, and Donald Kaberuka, the special envoy for the African Union Peace Fund.
"I can call America fragile", Mugabe said. Fragile states are also said to suffer from a natural resource curse, and this is something Mugabe boasted about. After South Africa, I want to know which country has that high level of developments that we see in Zimbabwe. But Mugabe, sitting on a panel at the WEF, dismissed the idea that Zimbabwe is in a fragile state. He went on to say that Zimbabwe is one of the most well-resourced countries on the continent and also boosts 14 universities as well as a literacy rate of over 90%.
"We as the Congolese Solidarity Campaign and the DRC community in Durban and others parts of the land of South Africa have raised our voices and said "no" to the continued destabilisation of our motherland".
"We have more resources, perhaps more than the average country in the world".
"We are now a basket case, thanks to decades of Zanu PF misrule, rampant corruption and unprecedented dereliction of governmental responsibility", Gutu went on.
