Michael Jackson meets with Robert Mugabe in never-before-seen footage

Michael Jackson secretly met with Robert Mugabe and his second spouse Grace greater than twenty years in the past.

Footage of the extremely secretive assembly has been launched and exhibits the late King of Pop fraternizing with the previous president of Zimbabwe. The video, which was shot in the State Home in Harare in October 1998, exhibits Mugabe warmly greeting Jackson with a handshake. Later, the “Thriller” crooner kisses Grace’s hand.

The controversial assembly was organized to debate concepts for the event of a lodge in Victoria Falls, however the plans by no means got here to fruition.

“They’d need to see if Zimbabwe, and particularly the Victoria Falls, qualifies for a lodge, they need to set up an entire chain of motels the world over,” Mugabe says in the video. “I suppose it’s a Michael Jackson chain.”

Mugabe has been accused of perpetrating genocide in Zimbabwe through the 1980s in which 20,000 individuals died. He persistently denied stories of mass killings and blamed Western media for creating fabrications.

In 1999, Mugabe referred to the massacres as a “second of insanity” however blamed them on renegade troopers, Reuters reported.

Mugabe resigned in 2017 after a 37-year rule and died in 2019.
