    Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has appealed to China and Russia to protect him from attacks by the United States and Europe.

    The veteran ruler, who is barred from travelling to the US and the European Union because of alleged human rights violations, is on an official visit to China.

    On Wednesday, he met acting Chinese President Xi Jinping where he called on Russia and China to provide a buffer against the “Anglo-Saxon alliance’s expansionist agenda given what Nato did in Libya and threats posed to Syria and Iran,” his spokesman told state owned Herald newspaper yesterday.

    “Countries like China and Russia must provide both leadership and protection,” President Mugabe’s spokesman George Charamba quoted him as telling the Chinese leader.

    Mr Mugabe, in power since Zimbabwe’s independence from Britain in 1980, said Western countries were after his country’s mineral wealth.

    “Nature has disbursed its resources in its own ways to different countries with some countries richly endowed while some are not. Even us who do not have oil feel no less menaced as these rapacious countries are looking for other resources,” Mr Mugabe said.

    Russia and China sat aside and did nothing when their "beloved" friend in Ghadaffi was punished by NATO. I wonder if Mugabe has something special to convince Putin and China to protect him if NATO decides to go after him

    Mugabe na Hugo Chaveze are the most wanted sitting leaders now just after Gaddafi.
    Mugabe has less than one year to LIVE due to his cancer
    Chaveze has only two years to LIVE according to his personal doctor, wote wamekuwa-poissoned na wenye dunia hii America!
