Go hang, Mugabe tells foes

12 August 2013, 15:36

Harare - Zimbabwe's president Robert Mugabe on Monday said those upset by his disputed landslide election victory could "go hang".

The 89-year-old vowed never to let go of his victory as his opponent Morgan Tsvangirai lodged a petition in court challenging the election outcome.

"Those who were hurt by defeat can go hang if they so wish," Mugabe told thousands at a rally to honour heroes of the country's liberation wars.

"Never will we go back on our victory."

Mugabe was declared winner of the 31 July election with 61% of the vote against Tsvangirai's 34%.

Tsvangirai's lawyers on Friday filed a petition at the constitutional court challenging the vote, which extended Mugabe's 33-year rule by another five years.

"We are delivering democracy on a platter. We say take it or leave it, but the people have delivered democracy," Mugabe said.
