Mugabe Tells S. Africa Media: ‘I Don’t Want to See a White Man’

Yahoo! News, April 10, 2015

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.
