Robert Gabriel Mugabe
Defence minister George Mpombo ushers Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe. This man arrived amid 'tight' security and some of his body guards seemed to be overzealous and exaggerated the security situation.
They pushed reporters, photographers, protocol officers, ministers, Zambian police officers and anything object that looked in Magabe's direction.
I told one of them that Zambia is a sovereign state and the leadership allows a free press to operate, virtues, which he late Mwanawasa encouraged. Therefore, it was useless and futile for the Zimbabweans to come with their Mugabe and disturb the peace!
