Zimbabwe: US ambassador

Zimbabwean social justice blog, Sokwanele, reports on the public rebuking of the US Ambassador, Christopher Dell, by Robert Mugabe. Mugabe accused the ambassador of “inappropriate behaviour” for what he saw as a criticism of his government. To justify the governments action the state controlled newspaper had the nerve to quote the “Vienna convention of diplomatic relations” clearly forgetting when the “Zimbabwe Government violated article 36 of the Vienna Convention when Zimbabwean customs officials rummaged through British diplomatic baggage.”
