Botswana calls on SADC not to recognise Mugabe

GABARONE, July 4 (Reuters) - Botswana called on regional grouping SADC on Friday not to recognise the re-election of Robert Mugabe as president of neighbouring Zimbabwe.

"As a country that practises democracy and the rule of law, Botswana does not ... recognise the outcome of the presidential run-off election and would expect other SADC member states to do the same," Botswana’s Foreign Minister Phandu Skelemani said in a statement.
