During Independence Day celebrations in Harare on Monday, Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe was captured reportedly bowing to a portrait of himself while inspecting the guard.

In this Al Jazeera YouTube video below, the 92-year-old veteran leader is seen driving around the National Stadium in Harare in an open top van before what appears to be the moment he bows to his iconic portrait.

Thousands of Zimbabweans flocked to the National Stadium in the capital for the country's main Independence Day celebrations, 36 years after the Zimbabwe flag was raised.
