Rally backs Mu­gabe

7 Days in Dubai - - DRIVEN -

Tens of thou­sands of Zim­bab­weans have gath­ered to show their sup­port for 92-year-old Pres­i­dent Robert Mu­gabe in the cap­i­tal, Harare. The mas­sive turnout was or­gan­ised by Mu­gabe’s rul­ing party, ZANU-PF, in re­sponse to re­cent antigov­ern­ment demon­stra­tions and a na­tion­wide strike protest­ing Zim­babwe’s rapidly de­clin­ing econ­omy. With some draped in Zim­babwe’s flag, Mu­gabe’s fol­low­ers sang and chanted slo­gans call­ing for the pres­i­dent to rule for life.
