Baku, December 12, AZERTAC

Zimbabwe's president Robert Mugabe has again read out the wrong speech, repeating September's blunder that led to calls for him to resign according to ABC Australia.

Speaking at an annual conference of his ruling ZANU-PF party in the resort town of Victoria Falls, the 91-year-old read the wrong script for about 30 seconds before being handed the correct one.

The mistake came as Mr Mugabe warned his county's military and security services to stay out of politics, saying one of the major problems confronting the party was ambitious officials angling for positions.

In September the veteran leader read a 25-minute speech through to the end, apparently unaware that he was delivering the same text he presented during his state of the nation address the previous month.
