1[to the citizens of Zimbabwe, on the death by poachers of an iconic animal] Cecil the lion was yours, and you failed to protect him.
2It may be necessary to use methods other than constitutional ones.
3I wish to assure you that there can never be any return to the state of armed conflict which existed before our commitment to peace and the democratic process of election under the Lancaster House agreement.
4We pride ourselves as being top, really, on the African ladder... We feel that we have actually been advancing rather than going backwards.
5We have said the first step was to designate the land, inform the owners. And the second would be to get the responses from the owners. And this will be openly done.
6Stay with us, please remain in this country and constitute a nation based on national unity.
7We are no longer going to ask for the land, but we are going to take it without negotiating.
8Was it not enough punishment and suffering in history that we were uprooted and made helpless slaves not only in new colonial outposts but also domestically.
9We don't mind having sanctions banning us from Europe. We are not Europeans.
10If the choice were made, one for us to lose our sovereignty and become a member of the Commonwealth or remain with our sovereignty and lose the membership of the Commonwealth, I would say let the Commonwealth go.
11I have died many times. I have actually beaten Jesus Christ because he only died once.
12We of Africa protest that, in this day and age, we should continue to be treated as lesser human beings than other races.
13People are free to campaign and they will be free to vote. There won't be any soldiers, you know, at the queues. Anyone who has the right to vote is free to go and cast his vote anywhere in his own area, in his own constituency.
14In most recent times, as the West started being hostile to us, we deliberately declared a Look East policy.
15True, some land was bought by a few Cabinet Ministers. They bought the land. No minister, to my knowledge acquired land which was meant for resettlement.
16We are not hungry... Why foist this food upon us? We don't want to be choked. We have enough.
17So, Blair keep your England, and let me keep my Zimbabwe.
18Some people are contriving ways and means of making us collapse.
19There are things one must do for oneself.
20Our party must continue to strike fear in the heart of the white man, our real enemy!
21Countries such as the U.S. and Britain have taken it upon themselves to decide for us in the developing world, even to interfere in our domestic affairs and to bring about what they call regime change.
22The land is ours. It's not European and we have taken it, we have given it to the rightful people... Those of white extraction who happen to be in the country and are farming are welcome to do so, but they must do so on the basis of equality.
23The white man is not indigenous to Africa. Africa is for Africans. Zimbabwe is for Zimbabweans.
24Our votes must go together with our guns. After all, any vote we shall have, shall have been the product of the gun. The gun which produces the vote should remain its security officer - its guarantor. The people's votes and the people's guns are always inseparable twins.
25The only white man you can trust is a dead white man.
