Mugabe says that Mandela preferred his personal freedom over the economic freedom of black South Africans.
He has changed his tune on the late South African icon.
When Mandela died four years ago, Mugabe described him as a champion of the oppressed.
But at a Zanu-PF rally at the weekend, the Zimbabwean president claimed that Madiba had cherished his personal freedom more than anything else.
It was the second time in less than a week that Mugabe had criticised Mandela’s legacy.
In quotes carried by NewZimbabwe.com, Mugabe said that whites in South Africa control land, industries and companies and that Mandela had made a big mistake by ignoring the land issue.
