President Robert Mugabe on Tuesday read the wrong speech at the State opening of the third session of the 8th Parliament of Zimbabwe.

He repeated a speech he read during the State of the Nation Address (SONA) address last month word for word.

Curiously, Zanu PF MPs cheered the nonagenarian as he read the rehashed speech.

There was a mix-up of the President’s speeches today resulting in President Mugabe delivering the wrong speech, Presidential spokesman Mr George Charamba has said.

 ”There has been a mix-up of speeches resulting in a situation where His Excellency the President delivered the wrong speech. The mix-up happened in his secretarial office therefore the delivery in Parliament should be set aside. The error is sincerely regretted and corrective measures are being considered,” Mr. Charamba said.
