ZIMBABWE: President Mugabe Shows Sign Of Fatigue At An Event
91 year old Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe reportedly showed signs of fatigue during celebrations to mark the country’s Defence Forces Day on Tuesday.
News Day said the veteran leader struggled to walk to the podium where he delivered his speech in less than 30 minutes.
This was after standing for a few minutes during an inspection of the military parade, the report said.
The nonagenarian chose to stick to his prepared speech on the operations of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF).
Mugabe is generally known for using such occasions to vent his anger at the West, which he blames for the continued deterioration of his country's economy.
The European Union (EU) imposed sanctions against Zimbabwe in 2002 over electoral fraud and human rights abuses.
