Mugabe to attend pope's inauguration

18 March 2013, 16:04

Harare - Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe will attend this week's inauguration mass for Pope Francis, a presidential source said, with the staunchly Catholic leader set to leave for Rome on Sunday.

"Yes he is attending," the official told AFP, adding the veteran leader's trip will not be affected by the European Union travel ban because "the Vatican is a state on its own".
