Mugabe warns of revolt if he loses

June 14, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

President Robert Mugabe said veterans of Zimbabwe's liberation war will take up arms again if he loses a June 27 presidential runoff vote.

Mugabe told youth members of his ruling ZANU-PF party that the veterans had said that they would launch a new bush war if the election was won by opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai.

Tsvangirai, human rights groups and Western powers accuse Mugabe of unleashing a campaign of intimidation to win the runoff.
