Very Old and Demented 92 Year Old Zimbabwe President Mugabe delays Meeting Waiting for Vice President Mujuru whom He Fired Last Year

President Mugabe is now so old that he once held up a Cabinet meeting waiting for ousted Vice President, Joice Mujuru.

This is according to The Economist which wrote ; “Mr Mugabe has long kept his party in line by playing off one faction against another with Machiavellian skill and, in the words of a former cabinet minister, “charming you while preparing to stab you in the back”. Yet now he dozes off in meetings and suffers startling lapses in memory. Recently he is said to have delayed the start of a cabinet meeting because he was waiting for Joice Mujuru to arrive, forgetting that he had fired her as vice-president two years ago.

To be fair, Mr Mugabe also has moments of lucidity. He may ramble, but his supporters note that few other men of his age can stand and deliver an hour-long speech. And he is adaptable in the face of infirmity: after reading the wrong speech at the opening of parliament last year he has taken to speaking off the cuff instead.
