Sahara Reporters Vs. Robert Mugabe: SR Releases Photo of Him Sleeping at Buhari’s Inauguration



Mugabe Sleeping…And the Sahara Reporters – Robert Mugabe drama continues.

You will recall that Zimbabwean Minister of Information, Jonathan Moyo, criticized the publication for allegedly disrespecting Mugabe during President Buhari’s inauguration ceremony.

And now, a photo of Mugabe sleeping during the inauguration, said to have been released by Sahara Reporters is being widely circulated on social media.

      Mugabe is either falling or sleeping somewhere. But this old dictator refuses to give the power to a more competent man. It’s not that he’s done much for Zimbabweans. The sight of him is simply disgusting. Sahara reporters might be bogus sometimes but I have some respect for them. They are not afraid to shame some of these useless African leaders.

    The guy is 120 years old and it was obviously past his nap time. The big question is why he is still in office, and who is really running things over there. But we already know Gucci Grace is in charge.

    this is poor journalism. SHAME ON SAHARA REPORTERS!! this was clearly done to get back at them. it is totally not necessary, especially when your journalist was wrong. you do not hound anyone for a comment when the person made it clear that he would not answer. what is this disrespect that we show to African presidents? would the journalist have done this if it were a western president? please stop giving journalists a bad name..

      Where were u when Aisha Sesay was putting our shameful minsiters and leaders on the hot sit during the chibok saga?? Nigerians were saying she was rude, nah she was making them wake up from their slumber. Shame on naija journalists based in naija, happy with Sahara reporters jungle style of reporting the news.

    Sahara Reporters should take several seats.
    After campaigning for and crowning Buhari,, they turn around and ask Mugabe to step down for the younger generation?
    What is really the difference between the two?
    Let me remind Sahara Reporters that charity begins at home! !!

    @le coco, see below
    By Nomazulu Thata

    Letter to the people of Nigeria,

    Dear Nigerians, you are really God sent, God sent. I watched “Mugabe confronted by Sahara TV reporters” with awe and wonder, where you got the courage from to tell our President, when will there be democracy in Zimbabwe, a question we cannot ask in our own country.

    Nnenne thus tell them!

    Nigerians and their hypocrisy! Please what is the difference between Mugabe and Buhari. Buhari is in his late seventies, has ruled Nigeria before, served as PTF chairman ( and Abacha looted billions of dollars that we are still recuperating today under his watch). So, pray, tell, what is the difference? Do we not have younger people in Nigeria? Let’s remove the log in our eyes. Let’s face our country and let others face theirs.

    Sahara reporters are a joke and a disgrace to journalism .And these shenanigans will cause diplomatic problems between Nigeria and other Africancountries which is what the West wants by any means necessary. SH should stop being a pawn in the West’s hands.

      aunty….Lets not get ahead of our selves shall we ???
      BUHARI was DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s the huge difference …you don’t like him FINE…but he was elected…Mugabe to has refused to leave although that is not our business but i dont see how posting a sleeping picture is bad journalism…after all he was sleeping in the public , its not like SR broke into his home to sbap him

      Calm down

    This is so unprofessional on the part of the Sahara reporter’s group

  27. le coco

    @ade boy…. i am not saying mugabe shouldnt step down.. but what sahara reporters displayed was poor journalism. nd jst because nomazulu says she supports us doesnt mean she is representing all zimbabweans.. of course a large population of the country want him out, but trust and believe that i have met more zimbabweans hu are supporting this man than those against him.. not being a zimbabwean i had this notion that all zimbabweans want this man out of power.. but goodness dd i receive the shock of my life… i know people hu r willing to defend this man at any cost..regardless of all he has done. my issue was not that the questions were invalid, it was that the journalist was completely unprofessional. she would not have done this if it was obama coming to Nigeria.. we dont need paparazzi style journalism. why didnt she ask jacob zuma about the Nkaandla saga that has been dragging on for years? is it because SA is seen as a more respected country?
