Mugabe: 'We are delivering democracy on a platter'

Robert Mugabe has launched a stinging attack on his opposition rivals in his first public speech since he won Zimbabwe's disputed presidential election.

In his Heroes' Day speech, which dealt with a series of national issues, Mr Mugabe focused at one point on his election victory and called for celebrations.

He said: "We are delivering democracy on a platter. We say take it or leave it, but the people have delivered democracy."
