Robert Mugabe With Wife & Children at Lavish 91st Birthday Party [Photos]
The Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe, celebrated his 91st birthday with a lavish party that was attended by his wife and children along with thousands of party faithfuls. The celebration was held at the famed Victoria Falls resort, the foremost luxury hotel in the country. 2 elephants and a lion were reportedly slaughtered for the feast, which held on the hotel’s golf course.
Photos show several huge birthday cakes on display and at a point during the party, assisted by his wife Grace, the Zimbabwean leader, who was surrounded by family members, cut some of the cakes. He also threw 91 balloons into the air while school pupils and entertainers performed.
Critics lampooned the scale of the festivities, reported to have cost up to $10M, calling them “obscene” in a country where millions live in poverty. Mugabe, who has ruled Zimbabwe since independence from Britain in 1980, is the world’s oldest leader.
