The ruling Zanu PF party is reportedly looking to spend some $2.5 million on President Robert Mugabe’s 93rd birthday party, NewZimbabwe.com has gathered.
Money appears to be no trouble for the veteran Zimbabwean leader who was recently revealed to have shelled out $1.4m on an anniversary diamond ring for his wife, Grace. The cash was however lost after the deal went sour with Grace admitting she was duped.
However, opposition parties immediately attacked Mugabe for wasting money on extravagant revelry while “93% of Zimbabweans are wallowing in poverty caused by his incomptence and misrule”.
