That Hilarious Picture of President Mugabe That Went Viral

A photo has been taken of Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe – in which he appears to be wearing a wig and earrings.

The snap of the Zimbabwean leader – taken by a photographer outside South Africa’s Union Building this morning – is angled so that the leader is stood directly in front of a woman whose hair appears above him.

A perspective trick makes it appear that the hair and earrings are attached to his head, as opposed to behind him.

It’s not the first photo of the leader to circulate online in recent months – a snap of the 91-year-old falling over was spread in February, despite the leader’s best efforts to force photographers to delete the footage.mugabe-falls

Mr Mugabe can take solace in the fact he’s not the only leader to have an embarrassing photo go viral – after some carelessly-positioned toys upstaged North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a visit to a nursery. (OMG! What are those toys doing? LMAO)Kim-Jong-Un3
