Cape Town - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has reportedly laid into Britain, describing the nation as having "grown small in mind".
The 90-year-old veteran leader said this during a rare interview with Ghanaian-born British journalist and film-maker Roy Agyemang for a BBC documentary titled "Robert Mugabe @ 90".
According to The Independent in UK, Mugabe "lamented" over the "wisdom the likes of Churchill had", saying such wisdom didn't exist in "people now with gay habits".
Mugabe said Britain should be ashamed, adding that he pitied Queen Elizabeth II - whom he admired – for being "in these circumstances".
Mugabe said Britain's values had gone to the dogs, saying countries had no respect for Britain anymore.
Mugabe had no kind words for US President Barack Obama whom he accused of always trying "as much as possible" to please the white people and failing to serve the "interests of blacks who are suffering" and yearning for justice.
Mugabe said he was not bothered by people who viewed him as one of the worst villains of modern history.
