Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe branded the West "vile" and said his critics could "go hang", shortly after taking his oath of office today.
"Except for a few Western dishonest countries, our elections have been hailed as peaceful, free, fair and credible," the 89-year-old told supporters in an hour-long speech.
For those odd Western countries who happen to hold a different negative view of our electoral process and outcome, there is not much that we can do about them. We dismiss them as the vile ones whose moral turpitude we must mourn.
