Mugabe's Life Epitomised✊ The 'New African' - ANC Extends Condolences💐 After Former Zimbabwean Leader Dies⚰

  |   Sanews

ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule has extended the party's condolences to the family of former Zimbabwean president and liberator Robert Mugabe following reports of his death at the age of 95.

Magashule said Mugabe's life epitomised the "new African" who, having shrugged off the colonial yoke, strived to ensure his country took its place among the community of nations, firmly in charge of its own destiny.

Magashule added that Mugabe was as an ardent and vocal advocate of African unity and self-reliance and said he would always be remembered for his rallying cry: "Africa is for Africans, Zimbabwe is for Zimbabweans".

"Though the ANC and its leadership may have differed, often vociferously, with Mugabe on matters of national interest, as fraternal organisations we held as sacrosanct the principle of sovereignty. To the Mugabe family, we extend our heartfelt condolences," he said.

The secretary-general also conveyed condolences to Zanu-PF, the liberation party which Mugabe led for more than three decades.
