A stumble from Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe became fodder for internet humourists, while sparking a conversation on the leader's 34 years in office. The 90-year-old leader has ruled Zimbabwe since 1980.

Mugabe, who was appointed chairman of the African Union last week, tripped after finishing a speech in Harare on Wednesday. Twitter users shared memes of the leader with #MugabeFalls, which has been used more than 13,000 times.
