Zimbabwe's Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai on Saturday said he felt that there was nothing wrong with an Egypt-style uprising in his country.

He was speaking in the Swiss resort town of Davos where he is attending the World Economic Forum.

"People are demanding more freedom and there's nothing wrong with that," said Tsvangirai in an interview with Fox News.

He said the uprisings in North Africa stem from a general resentment towards autocratic regimes.

Zanu-PF commentators maintained that Tunisia-style revolts were impossible in Zimbabwe because President Robert Mugabe was distributing the country's resources.
