Mugabes mocked in comedy play in Zimbabwe

Zimbabweans push the boundaries as they take aim at their former strongman.

    A comedy about the coup that toppled Zimbabwe's longest-serving president, Robert Mugabe, is taking centre stage in Harare.

    The play openly ridicules him and his wife, something that would have been unthinkable during Mugabe's 37-year rule.

     

    Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa tells us how Zimbabweans are testing their new leadership.
