Robert Mugabe’s new look has people talking
Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe appeared in public on Wednesday sporting a new look.
HARARE - Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe appeared in public on Wednesday sporting a new look.
Many say a clean-shaven head gave the 93-year-old president a more youthful appearance as he delivered a speech at Heroes Acre in Harare.
The president’s haircut immediately got people talking.
It’s not often that President Mugabe appears in public so closely-shaved.
But as he delivered a speech live on state TV, it was hard not to miss the striking new look.
The private _News Day _reports separately on Wednesday that Mugabe is due to begin campaign rallies ahead of next year’s polls, and so it's not clear if the new style is especially for that.
