Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe turned 93

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe turned 93A large celebration is scheduled for Saturday in tribute to Mugabe, who has ruled since independence from white minority rule in 1980.

This is reported by Associated Press.

In an interview marking his birthday that was shown late Monday on state broadcaster ZBC, Mugabe repeated his pledge to stand in elections in 2018 despite calls from some Zimbabweans for him to quit amid economic turmoil in the once-prosperous country and numerous allegations about human rights and election irregularities. The president said he was still popular and nobody is qualified to replace him.

"The volume of wishes for the president to stand, the number of people who will be disappointed is galore and I don't want to disappoint them," he said.
