The video shows a dinner party listening to Leo while his uncle sits at the edge of the table, looking far from amused.

Leo spoke about how he found out he was no longer the chairperson of the Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA).

According to the dictator's nephew, he was in Nigeria at the time of the coup. Unaware of the unfolding situation in his home country, Leo found out about it when a journalist asked him to comment on his removal.

Although everyone laughs at his recollection of events, Mugabe seemed to be unamused by it.

Looking as if he's half asleep, the former Zimbabwean leader did not even crack a smile.

Robert Mugabe's reign came to an end last year November after a military intervention following the former president paving the way for his wife, Grace Mugabe, to succeed him.

In order to avoid a possible impeachment, Mugabe willingly resigned. He was succeeded by now-president Emmerson Mnangagwa, ironically whose sacking led to the military coup.
