ZANU PF and the government have ignored former President Robert Mugabe on the occasion of his 95th birthday.
Mugabe turned 95 on February 21st, more than a year after he was pushed out of office through a military coup.
According to Newsday, Information Ministry permanent secretary, Ndavaningi Mangwana said there were no plans to give the former Zanu PF leader a treat. Said Mangwana:
Nothing specific as far as I know. I will inquire with the Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet (Misheck Sibanda)… But I think it’s likely to be a private affair as it was last year.
Presidential spokesperson George Charamba said that he was not aware of any government plans to celebrate Mugabe’s birthday, while ZANU PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo said that he was not sure if the party’s youth league had planned anything.
