– Another photo of Zimbabwe’s President Mugabe has surfaced online
– The 93 year has many times in recent years been caught snoozing on camera
– The country formally Southern Rhodesia has denounced his embarrassing sleeping habits
Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, on Tuesday used President Donald Trump’s address at the United Nations General Assembly as an opportunity to catch some sleep.
The 93 year old has many times in the past been caught snoozing at important events so this comes as no surprise.
Many including his country men have condemned the embarrassing habit of the world’s oldest serving head of state, but the nonagenerian remains unperturbed.
Jessie Majome, a vocal legislator from Zimbabwe’s main opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party led by Morgan Tsvangirai criticised Mugabe for taking a nap at such an important world gathering.
Majome said: ”Our constitution’s foreign policy objectives are anchored on the interests of Zimbabwe; the President’s sleeping on the biggest and most important stage of the whole world is the opposite of that. It embarrasses us and puts the country into disrepute. How he can sleep through a nuclear war speech is astounding. To travel so far with so many delegates at such a cost only to sleep so soundly is disconcerting. Surely him and his team must candidly introspect about this worsening state of affairs.”
