Picture of Mugabe 'sleeping' as Trump addresses UN General Assembly goes viral
The world’s oldest serving head of state, Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, on Tuesday used President Donald Trump’s address at the United Nations General Assembly to catch up on sleep.
Jessie Majome, a vocal legislator from Zimbabwe’s main opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party led by Morgan Tsvangirai criticised Mugabe for taking a nap at such an important world gathering.
Majome said: ”Our constitution's foreign policy objectives are anchored on the interests of Zimbabwe; the President's sleeping on the biggest and most important stage of the whole world is the opposite of that. It embarrasses us and puts the country into disrepute. How he can sleep through a nuclear war speech is astounding. To travel so far with so many delegates at such a cost only to sleep so soundly is disconcerting. Surely him and his team must candidly introspect about this worsening state of affairs.”
