Mugabe: Obama should prove he is not “son of a whore”

Obama should prove he is not “son of a whore”: Mugabe

President Robert Mugabe has happily waded into the row between outgoing United States President, Barack Obama and his Philippine counterpart, Rodrigo Duterte, following the nasty “son of a whore” jibe. On Monday, Duterte dismissed Obama as a “son of a whore”. Obama, who flew to Laos after attending the G20 meeting in Hangzhou, China, had been set to raise concerns about human rights abuses in the Philippines. But speaking in Manila before leaving for the same meeting in Laos, Duterte bristled at the suggestion, saying the Philippines “has long ceased to be a colony”.

“Putang ina, I will swear at you in that forum,” he then said, using a Tagalog phrase for “son of a whore” or “son of a bitch”. Obama was born to a married black Kenyan father and an American white mother outside of marriage. That there is someone who is joining him to remind Amercians that colonization is long over came as sweet news to Mugabe. “Instead of being obsessed with me to the extent of planting false information about my death, the Americans should help their president to prove that what is being said about him is entirely not true,” Mugabe said to reporters in Harare.

“You all know that Americans have appointed themselves the policeman of the world, and that is why they go around bullying everyone, but in that Phillipino chap, they have met more than their match… it shows that everyone is getting fed-up with the (Americans). He (Duterte) should not even apologise… apologise for what?” Mugabe added. There is no love lost between Harare and Washington as the former accuse the latter of trying to topple him from power. The Philippine leader, known for his colourful language, has insulted prominent figures before. In the past, he has called Pope Francis the “son of a whore”, US Secretary of State John Kerry “crazy” and recently referred to the US ambassador to the Philippines a “gay son of a whore”.
