ZIMBABWE – Zimbabwe’s state television decided against a live broadcast of President Robert Mugabe’s speech to Parliament, following threats from opposition MPs to heckle the 91-year-old leader.

Harare – Zimbabwe’s 91-year-old President Robert Mugabe read out the wrong speech at the opening of parliament on Tuesday, his spokesperson said, blaming a mix-up in his office for the error.

Mugabe had delivered the same speech during a state of the nation address on August 25, in which he pinned his hopes on China to help revive Zimbabwe’s struggling economy.

“The mix-up happened in his secretarial office. Therefore the delivery in Parliament should be set aside,” spokesperson George Charamba was quoted as saying by the online edition of the government-owned Herald newspaper.

Charamba said Mugabe would read the correct speech later at a Harare hotel.
