Is Mugabe Winning Back Lost Love From Youth?

President Robert Mugabe has given another of his history lecture-like speeches, this time at a youth rally in Gweru. Apparently skirting the issues affecting youth, the nonagenarian hardly talks about the notoriously high unemployment rate, widening inequality and failing economy. The ruling party's Presidential Youth Interface Rallies are meant for Mugabe to go around the country meeting young people and trying to win back the lost love.
