Zimbabwean president celebrates his 90th birthday on Friday.

Plans for a huge party on Sunday, said to cost $1m, are being condemned as the country still struggles with its economic crisis. 

A freedom fighter for many, he has drawn criticism and condemnation in the West. His country has been under international sanctions for what Europe and the United States say are human rights violations and lack of reforms.

Inside Story will focus on Robert Mugabe and Zimbabwe.
