President Robert Mugabe outing on Wednesday spark tongues wagging when he appeared in public sporting a new look.
The 93-year-old long-serving Zimbabwe leader delivered his keynote at the burial of retired Brig-Gen James Murozvi at Heroes Acre sporting a clean shaven haircut, commonly known as a “chiskop” in Zimbabwe.
The younger looking Mugabe was almost unrecognisable with his dark shades to go with his unexpected transformation.
Mugabe has never been seen in public clean shaven, probably in decades.
The president’s haircut immediately got people talking.
