A video of a Zimbabwean reenacting Mugabe signing his resignation has gone viral

A Zimbabwean man pretends to be Mugabe as he signs his resignation, he exaggerates the shaky movements of the 93-year-old statesman and fumbles with his glasses.

While he is doing this the crowd gives mock encouragement for the 'president' to sign his resignation on a scrap piece of paper.

Yen.com.gh learned that some have called the video extremely disrespectful while others saw the funny side of it and perceived it as a joke.
