Robert Mugabe Falls Down From Podium, Journalists Forced To Delete Pictures
90-year-old Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe, is reported to have fallen down the steps while walked down from a podium after speaking to supporters upon his return from Ethiopia. Mugabe appeared to miss a step and toppled when he left the raised lectern at the airport on Wednesday afternoon, according to several witnesses, who insisted on anonymity because of security concerns.
His aides quickly helped him up and escorted him to his limousine which sped away, they said. Some press photographers who captured the fall said they were forced to delete their pictures by security personnel. Mugabe's spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
