Robert Mugabe mocked after ‘being given wheelchair for his 93rd birthday’

ZIMBABWE president Robert Mugabe has become a laughing stock in his country after reports that his cabinet members gave him a motorised wheelchair for his 93rd birthday.

Mugabe – in power for nearly 40 years – was presented with the gift at a private ceremony which went viral within minutes.

Social media users and opposition politicians were first to ridicule the veteran politician for “ruling from a wheelchair”, and local media has now picked up the story.

Opposition politician Elias Mudzuri told a rally: “We are not going to allow Mugabe to get older and continue to rule us from a wheelchair.”
