Mugabe Feels Betrayed By South Africa

The 94-year-old made the remarks in an interview at his Blue Roof mansion in Harare. Asked if he felt betrayed by his neighbours Mugabe said, "In a sense, yes." But he conceded that none of Zimbabwe's neighbours apart from South Africa had the capacity to intervene. "South Africa could have done much more. It did not have to send an army, but just to engage," he said.
