People were left stunned after President Mugabe who is 93 years was caught dozing off at a state function in Zimbabwe.
President Mugabe sleeping while his wife roasts presidential spokesperson, Charamba
The President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe dozed off while his wife, Grace roasted presidential spokesperson George Charamba before a stunned Zanu PF crowd and a television audience on Saturday.
NewZimbabwe reported that Grace was shouting at the information ministry permanent secretary down for allegedly influencing the State media to ignore her philanthropic work while reserving good coverage for others.
It could have been double embarrassment for President Mugabe’s most fierce defender who has previously denied claims the Zimbabwean leader often dozed off during summits.
In attempts to give a spin to the claims, Charamba has said President Mugabe’s apparent sleepy postures would in fact be an attempt by his boss to avoid direct light onto his tired eyes.
With Grace evidently enjoying with gay abandon the misery she was pouring on Charamba, her husband may have also lost an invaluable aide who would usually nudge him back into alertness each time sleep got the better of him.
Mugabe has been ruling the country since 1980.
