Mugabe refuses to wear Indian Attire At India-Africa Forum Summit


A group photo by African presidents adorning Indian attires at the ongoing India-Africa Forum Summit in New Delhi, shows that controversial Zimbabwean president, Robert Mugabe is the only African leader not wearing the attire. 

All the leaders stepped out for the event held on Wednesday, October 28, wearing the traditional Indian attire, called Kurta Sherwani with a waist coat, except Mugabe who wore a grey suit, white shirt and black tie.

All the leaders looked colourful in the traditional attire including Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari who retained his cap instead of the traditional Indian scarf that goes with the attire.

The Zimbabwean president’s media team hasn’t given any reasons for Mugabe’s choice of clothes as at the time of writing this report.

Although Mugabe’s speech at the forum seem to have overshadowed his wardrobe choice as he delivered a strong speech where he said India and Africa are still treated as underdogs at the United Nations, while adding that: ”India & Africa are going to push hard for seats on the UN Security Council.”

It will be recalled that this is the third India-Africa Forum Summit being held as India seeks to strengthen relations with African leaders.

54 African nations are taking part in the summit which is hosted by India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
