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.
As one social media user notes, Mrs Mugabe “looks particularly happy”.
In #Harare for my first visit following the peaceful transition of power. #Zimbabwe is indeed open for business! Met with President @edmnangagwa and it was an honour to also pay a visit to former President Robert Mugabe. With thanks to foreign minister SB Moyo. #ED100days pic.twitter.com/5quQCEuRRS
