Video: Zimbabwe’s Africa’s most developed country 2nd only to South Africa says Mugabe, cites literacy rate, 14 universities & bumper harvest as evidence

Speaking at the ongoing World Economic Forum in South Africa, President Robert Mugabe has said that Zimbabwe is Africa’s most developed country second only to South Africa.

Responding to panel chair panel chair Anton du Plessis about whether Zimbabwe was a fragile state, Mugabe said:

…well you know of course that isn’t true. Zimbabwe is one of the most highly developed country in Africa after South Africa. I want to know which country has that level of development that you see in Zimbabwe. We have 14 universities, our literacy rate is over 90 and it’s the highest in Africa. Don’t talk of us as a fragile state. Yes we have our problems. We have resources. Perhaps more resources than the average country in the world…

Zimbabwe is currently experiencing a cash shortage due to a lack of US dollar notes – one of the country’s official currencies. A recent World Bank report said that while growth in 2016 was low at 0.4% it is predicted to grow by 3.8% this year.
