Mugabe wants return of death penalty

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has called for the death penalty to be reintroduced.

His comments come after a justice ministry official revealed last month that more than 50 people applied for the post of hangman.

The last execution in Zimbabwe was in 2005 when its hangman retired, the AFP news agency reports.

Speaking at the burial of a political ally in the capital, Harare, the 93-year-old leader said:

”Let’s restore the death penalty.

People are playing with death by killing each other.

Is this why we liberated this country? We want this country to be a peaceful and happy nation, not a country with people who kill each other.”

More than 90 prisoners are on death row, according to official figures quoted by the Associated Press agency.
