Zimbabwe will still mark ‘Robert Mugabe Day’

Robert Mugabe may no longer be Zimbabwe’s leader, but the country will still mark his birthday with a public holiday.

Zimbabwe’s new government has said tomorrow – 21 February – will continue to be known as Robert Gabriel Mugabe Youth Day.

Mr Mugabe, who was ousted from power in November last year after three decades as president, will turn 94 on Wednesday.

However, our reporter Shingai Nyoka says the day will be without the extravagant celebrations seen in previous years.

Meanwhile, a picture of Mr Mugabe, his wife Grace and the African Union Commission’s Moussa Faki Mahamat has created quite the stir on social media.

  1. The headline picture tells a sad story

  2. Tsvangirai is buried Tuesday and Wednesday is Mugabe’s birthday. LIFE IS VERY UNFAIR. A DICTATOR IS BLESSED WITH ABUNDANT LIFE WHILE THE GOOD PPLE ARE KICKING THE BUCKETS.
    Mugabe’s political opponents eg Tekere, Joshua Nkomo, Dumbutshena, Muzorewa, Smith, Ndabaningi etc all died.

  3. why when this man is still pouring scorn on the new dispensation who are you trying to please ED

  4. Comment…wish u old man many years but will never forgive u

  5. Good idea we can all now celebrate his fall from grace literally and metaphorically in perpetuity. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
