Harare — In his first public speech, Robert Mugabe who won Zimbabwe's disputed presidential election, launched a stinging attack on his opposition rivals.
He said those against him could "go hang", in a reference to PM Morgan Tsvangirai's claims that the vote was stolen.
Mr Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) boycotted the speech.
The MDC has lodged a legal challenge against the result of the "stolen election", demanding it be rerun.
Mr Mugabe won 61% of the vote in the election on 31 July, while Mr Tsvangirai came second with 35% and Welshman Ncube third with 3%, according to official results.
