According to the Dean of the Zimbabwean diplomatic corps in Ghana, Pavelyn Tendai Musaka African journalist should learn to respect our leaders.

“… I just get surprise that this is coming from African journalists; as far as i am concerned if you are an African and doesn't respect another African head of state, i don’t know who else to respect him [Robert Mugabe],” she said on an interview on Joy news.

Speaking on whether President Mugabe is aware of all the numerous quotes attributed to him, Madam Tendai Musaka said: “she engaged and challenged the Ghanaian and African media to start respecting their own”.

She opined that journalists don't attribute quotes to people when they have not quoted. She urged the media and the general public to desist from disrespecting the great president.

She however, noted that President Mugabe is not offended or affected by all the falsehood and quotes attributed to him.

“… he is not offended and bored by that; because he is a statesman he does not respond to little boys and girls,” she said.
