The Zimbabwean government has described as irritating and uncalled for, the criticism of President Robert Mugabe's continued leadership by leader of South African opposition party the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Julius Malema.

Malema on Monday said President Mugabe should step down as he was too old and no longer capable of discharging his duties.

But Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Minister, Dr Christopher Mushohwe in a hard hitting statement, said Malema did not have standing to criticize the leadership credentials and political career of so iconic a figure as President Robert Gabriel Mugabe.

The Government of Zimbabwe finds quite irritating and uncalled for insulting statements by the so-called Economic Freedom Fighters leader, Julius Malema, directed at Zimbabwe, and at the person of President Mugabe, Dr Mushohwe said.

His preposterous claim that his treacherous, pro-white, neo-colonial politics find inspiration in the figure and politics of President Mugabe is a hard to suffer insult.

Dr Mushohwe described Malema as a Gucci revolutionary whom we pity and dismiss him as an ignorant youth.

Instead of concerning himself with Zimbabwe, Malema should instead introspect on how history will judge him for hobnobbing with vested white interests at home and abroad, Dr Mushowe said.

He said no amount of invoking the name of President Mugabe would make him gain relevance on the continent, he said.
