Ex-Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe celebrated his 95th birthday on Thursday with his family at his Harare home.

In what was a rather low-key celebration, the Mugabe family, all immaculately dressed, took turns for photo ops with the man of the moment.

According to the Sunday Times, a strictly by invitation birthday party will be held in his honor at his Blue Roof mansion in Harare on Saturday.

To mark his birthday, Face2Face Africa shares with you some photos of him through the years.

Sally Mugabe was a trained teacher who asserted her position as an independent political activist and campaigner who was seen as Mugabe’s closest friend and adviser, and some critics suggest that Mugabe began to misrule Zimbabwe after her death.
