In a rare interview, Zimbabwe’s controversial leader Robert Mugabe, has told ITV News that he intends to remain the country’s president for another five years.
Mr Mugabe also denied his party has rigged the forthcoming elections this week and insisted they will be free and fair.
At 89 years old, a win over his presidential rival Morgan Tsvangirai on Wednesday, would keep him in office until his mid-nineties.
Speaking in Harare, Mugabe insisted he is up for the challenge and even offered to box with ITV News’ Correspondent Neil Connery to prove his fitness.
