It is good to see that Zimbabwe’s President for Life Robert Mugabe is being ridiculed for having fallen following a speech given at Harare International Airport and demanded that the images be deleted from the Internet. Mugabe has been memed on social media ever since.
While Mugabe may have fallen, he has not fallen from power. Mugabe, who turns 91 later this month, has been in power since 1980 and has just been elected President of the African Union. The EU is very likely to ease travel sanctions against Mugabe because of it.
Mugabe richly deserves to be lampooned, but he is not likely to lose power anytime soon. No doubt Mugabe will take out his anger over being mocked on the people of Zimbabwe who have suffered plenty.
