KIGALI-- Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa says he is not bothered by the negative things former president Robert Mugabe is saying about his administration since Mugabe is now senile.

Lately, Mugabe has complained about being removed from power forcibly last November and hinted at making attempts to bounce back to power through the opposition in elections to be held later this year.

Yet he resigned willingly in a speech to a joint session of the Zimbabwe parliament as it launched impeachment proceedings against him, accusing him dereliction of duty, among other things.

President Mnangagwa, who is Rwanda to attend an extraordinary summit of the African Union to launch the African Continental Free Trade Area, said Mugabe, 94, was now forgetful because of his advanced age and

should not be taken seriously.

Responding to a question from journalists about reports that the ex-president had indicated he would not vote for him in the July elections, Mnangagwa said: "As for our former President, he is our founding father, we respect him. (But) he is now 94 and he is bound to forget what he says," he said.

"If you ask him again he will tell you I will support ED (Mnangagwa's initials),"
