When asked by journalists at the recent UN conference about the beatings b
y police of members of the ZCTU during their peaceful demonstrations, he meekly replied that it was the overzealousness of one or two policemen.
But as soon as he landed in Africa (Egypt) he felt safe and started his rantings which got worse when he arrived in Harare.

To my horror, with a big grin on her face, I saw her nod her head in agreement as her boss was condoning the beatings of the demonstrators.
Talk of a mother figure, what a shame!
