As noted in the decision of the Confucius Peace Prize committee, Mr. Mugabe "overcame all kinds of difficulties, and devoted himself to restore political and economic order in the country, while supporting the idea of Pan-Africanism and African independence." Confucius Peace Prize Committee said that the President of Zimbabwe "worked tirelessly in the name of political and economic stability of the country, for the sake of peace for the people of Zimbabwe." The number of nominees, outside President of Zimbabwe, included heads of Kazakhstan and South Korea, the founder of Microsoft, UN Secretary-General and a number of other well-known personalities and organizations, contributed, from the eastern point of view, in the promotion of peace in the world. However, after Mr. Mugabe has been awarded, it became known that only 36 of the 76 members of the committee voted for his candidacy. But still, they was decided to award his name.  

Many Western observers accused the head of Zimbabwe in the suppression of political opponents, involvement in the persecution of democratic forces and the death of Democratic candidates, and that his economic policies have led to rampant inflation and high levels of poverty in the country. Some political analysts called him one of the most brutal African dictators. The head of the opposition People's Democratic Party of Zimbabwe Gorden Moyo said: "Mugabe’s reign is paved with blood, violence and cruelty." According to him, Mugabe is a real "and sadistic warlord who enjoy people suffering." However, as explained in an interview with The New York Times Prize Committee President poet Qiao Wei, "Mugabe was the leader of Zimbabwe since the founding of this state," he "has brought benefits to the people of Zimbabwe", he is "working tirelessly, even at the age of 90". "It shows that he has ideals in his heart ", - explained Mr. Qiao.

The award ceremony of the world named after Confucius will be held in December in Beijing. Mr. Mugabe will receive 500 thousand yuan (about $ 80 thousand.), and the statuette of Confucius. Recall that this prize was established in 2010 on the initiative of the entrepreneur Liu Chzhitsina. The last year winner was Fidel Castro.
