Mugabe says U.S.,Canada asked him to take Mengistu

HARARE, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe was quoted as saying on Monday that the United States and Canada asked him to give political asylum to former Ethiopian strongman Mengistu Haile Mariam when he fled to Harare in 1991.

In an interview in Zimbabwe's official Herald newspaper, Mugabe said the U.S. and Canadian governments offered to help his government look after Mengistu, who is accused of serious human rights violations during his 17-year rule.

Mugabe said that while Zimbabwe was being accused of "harbouring the genocide fugtive," there was no mention of the role played by both the United States and Canada.

"Both the Americans and Canadians even offered to assist financially if we could not meet the expenses of looking after Mengistu," he said.

"We have not received a cent because we have not requested their assistance. He (Mengistu) helped a lot of the continent's liberation movements," Mugabe added.

Mengistu was in the headlines earlier this month when Ethiopia sent a request for his extradition to South Africa, where he had gone for treatment for stomach ulcers. He returned to Zimbabwe just before the request was received.

Mugabe said he agreed to take in Mengistu, who was accused of waging a "red terror" while in power in Ethiopia, to help end a bloody civil war there.

There was no immediate comment from the U.S. and Canada embassies in Harare on Mugabe's comments.

The government has said in the past it gave refuge to Mengistu because he helped train and arm guerrillas of Mugabe's ZANU-PF movement during Zimbabwe's war for black majority rule in the 1970s.

MUGABE ON MENGISTU'S TRIP TO SOUTH AFRICA

On Mengistu's recent problems in South Africa, Mugabe said he had failed to persuade the former Ethiopian leader to go to Cuba for medical treatment.

"I suspect someone in South Africa leaked the information (about his presence), hence the noise," he said.

Mugabe said although Mengistu had committed crimes during his tenure as head of state, he was entitled to political refuge like other leaders.

Zimbabwe offered Mengistu asylum on the same conditions that the United States accepted former Filipino president Ferdinand Marcos -- that he has no public role and no future political involvement.

Mengistu has lived in a heavily-guarded Harare mansion since fleeing Ethiopia in 1991 just before rebels took over.

He was a leader of a group of radical soldiers took power in 1974 after overthrowing Emperor Haile Selassie.

After a violent internal power struggle he became head of state in 1977.

He launched a "Red Terror" campaign against rival Marxist factions, and thousands of people were killed over the next two years. Addis Ababa has accused him of genocide and crimes against humanity. Mengistu is one of 3,000 officials who fled Ethiopia in 1991 and are now being tried in absentia.
