Robert Mugabe on Pope Francis

Harare, Zimbabwe — Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe says he wants Pope Francis to visit Africa because he is “a man of God who will be praying for all of us, praying for the sinful world to repent.”

Mugabe attended the Pope’s inaugural mass on Tuesday despite a ban on him travelling to most European countries to protest his human rights record and alleged vote rigging in violent elections. Vatican City is not affected by the ban. Vatican officials said representatives of all world governments were welcome to come.

On his return from Rome, Mugabe urged reporters to go to church, lead a morally-guided life, avoid heavy drinking and write well without putting in “a twist like all journalists do for propaganda,” the Zimbabwe Herald newspaper , a government mouthpiece, reported Wednesday.
