Malawi calls Mugabe a "hero"

The Malawian Government has outraged human rights groups by naming a road after Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and declaring him to be a true African hero.

President Mugabe cut the ribbon on the road from Malawi to Mozambique, which has been called the Robert Mugabe Highway.

The road was funded with money from the European Union, which has imposed sanctions on Mr Mugabe due to allegations of electoral fraud and violence.

But the Malawian Government says the Zimbabwean president is a true son of Africa and a democrat who has liberated his people.

Human rights groups are furious Mr Mugabe is being honoured....
