According to Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Minister Prof Jonathan Moyo, 90-year-old President Mugabe tripped but did not fall yesterday.

Moyo said: "What happened is that the President tripped over a hump on the carpet on one of the steps of the dais as he was stepping down from the platform but he remarkably managed to break the fall on his own. I repeat that the President managed to break the fall."

Below is a sequence of what happened on that Wednesday, be the judge. Did the old man break the fall?

    No joke or laughing thing. We should have felt sorry for him at his age...ngatiitei Unhu hwakanaka kwete kuseka vakarabwa vedu. We will be laughing ourselves and proving to be more barbaric than the people of a certain island whom St. Paul noted their lack of hospitality.

    How can people be so cruel to burden such an old man with chairing this and that when he is fighting to support his own body.

    Surely he must b at an old age home, he is also a humanbeing. They must accept dat he is too old and stop pushing him around to protect their unjust riches.

    Even a ten yr old can trap n fall, but 4 da senile it's different. His allies who are enjoying da looting under his watch are the ones who are making it an isse by trying to defend it at all cost. Kingdom rise and fall.

    He definitely didn't break the fall, however poverty makes us make an issue out of nothing.
