Mugabe appeared tired during the continental event, and even when he was making his remarks or engaging in discussions, he spoke slowly in apparent fatigue.

When asked about the state of Zimbabwe's economy, he said: "We are not a poor country. If anyone wants to call us fragile, they can. You can also call America fragile."

However, it was his sleeping that caught the attention of many on social media. See some reactions on Twitter below.
