Harare - Fancy a cap to mark Zimbabwean President RobertMugabe's 92nd birthday this weekend?

You can buy one in South Africa now, according to areport in Zimbabwe's private Newsday paper.

James Pande,

the head of Zimbabwe's RGM fashion label, isselling his line across the Limpopo.

His Facebook page shows the latest caps for those wantingto proclaim their support for Mugabe, whose birthday is on Sunday.

It's black and white, with "RGM" and"92" embroidered on the front in heavy capitals.

Pande's label first gained attention in 2013 when histrademark "Hovhorosi-style" overalls changed the way many urbanyouths thought about fashion and the ruling Zanu-PF.

Embroidered with Mugabe's looping signature and in arange of eye-popping colours, they were snapped up by the young and trendy whowould never previously have been seen dead in a Mugabe-printed"zambia" (wraparound skirt).

Since then, fashionistas loyal to the longtime presidenthave outdone each other in updating the Mugabe fashion theme: some veryattractive green Zanu-PF shoes were seen at a ruling party conference in 2014,for example.

Pande's Facebook page shows him posing in khaki-colouredMugabe overalls and in a camouflage T-shirt emblazoned with the word"President".

Pande, who is reportedly based in South Africa, toldNewsday he had had an "encouraging" response to his products fromSouth Africans. It was not immediately clear where they were being sold from.
