North Korea’s role in Robert Mugabe’s power grab

Robert Mugabe

“Mugabe managed to win … because he had the Fifth North Korean Brigade working for him” Sir Jim Spicer on today’s Saturday Live, 18:02 in http://bit.ly/MAPrC #. And the full quote: “Mugabe managed to win not because of Mugabe but because he had the Fifth North Korean Brigade working for him, who then went on to slaughter thousands and thousands and thousands of other people from the Matabele tribe.” Refreshing to hear the links between two unloved rogue regimes so casually talked about as if it’s common knowledge. Also mentioned in this 2002 transcript of a BBC TV documentary by John Sweeney, who would later go on to visit North Korea.
