Mugabe holds lavish birthday party

Zimbabwe remains stuck in poverty and an economic crisis, but no expense was spared for the President Robert Mugabes 85th birthday. While thousands languished in hospitals with no staff or medicine, Mugabe and his loyal supporters celebrated the day with a huge cake, balloons, lobster, and champagne. Al Jazeeras Haru Mutasa reports from the town of Chinhoyi.
