Controversial Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe shocked the country when he read a wrong speech during the third opening of parliament.

The 91-year-old read the long speech word by word amid cheers from Zanu-PF legislatures, who were also unaware of the error.

In the repeated speech, the old man warned the west against interfering with Zimbabwe affairs as he openly vowed to work with china, who he described as friends.

George Charamba, the President’s spokesman apologized to the public and blamed the President’s Secretarial Office for the error.

Mugabe has been the President of Zimbabwe for over 30 years and he is determined to contest another 5-year term. It is also believed that he is grooming his wife, Grace Mugabe, to take over from him.
