Mugabe birthday in pictures as he turns 95

‘Former Zimbabwean President turned 95 today. The former head of state whose birthday was normally celebrated by the nation on a holiday that was set aside as the `21st February movement’ had a small family gathering celebrating his 95th birthday at his residence, “The Blueroof house” in Harare where family members wished him well today.

The former veteran leader stepped down as the president of Zimbabwe after the military and his party ZANU-PF pushed for his resignation in 2017.

There were mixed feelings and reactions from Zimbabweans on social media, with some wishing him well, while others lamented the role he played in bringing the Zimbabwe economy down.

This coming Saturday, two functions are lined up –  one with his friends and those still sympathetic to his life, while the ZANU-PF Youth wing will be holding a rally to mobilize support for current President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
