Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe walked away from a group of journalists in South Africa commenting “I don’t want to see a white man”, television footage showed Friday.
Mugabe was visiting Soweto, heartland of the anti-apartheid struggle, on Thursday on the final day of his state visit to South Africa when he approached a group of reporters.
But after apparently spotting an unwelcome face, he suddenly turned on his heel with the brusque remark: “I don’t want to see a white man”.
Mugabe’s comments were caught by South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) cameras as he left a memorial museum for the 1976 student uprising in Soweto.
Mugabe’s two-day trip was his first state visit to South Africa in more than two decades.
