A Zimbabwean based in Canada has marked President Mugabe's 82nd birthday in a unique way: she has released an eight-track album loaded with candid lyrics that reminds the ageing politician it's time to leave the State House.

Titled Happy 82nd birthday President Mugabe (Diaspora classics 1), the CD shows the great lengths to which disappointed Zimbabweans are prepared to go to tell Mugabe to leave.

Mugabe who has been clinging to power since 1980, told Newsnet recently that his unnamed doctor told him he has the bones of a 30-year-old some 52 years younger than his current 82.

The CD by one Viomak, a Zimbabwean lady who is an upcoming musician studying in Canada, is bad news for Mugabe and his wife Grace as it asks them where they will go after leaving office.

Viomak decided to pen the album after visiting Zimbabwe last year where she encountered many people who are struggling to survive.

"As President Mugabe celebrates his birthday, I thought of adding flavour to his special day by chanting sweet songs for him and dedicating my very first music album to him."

"This album is derived from common Godly tunes so as to allow me the golden opportunity to render unto the Lord the burdens of my heart."

"It is very unfortunate that our so-called President has chosen to see multitudes of ourselves perish in the name of power. Who in their right senses would allow their people to live lives worse than wild animals?"

"To Mugabe and all Zanu PF supporters, let it be known to you that this world is not our home. I seriously condemn your desire to continuously exploit the poor masses of Zimbabwe, and your willingness to reduce the country to nothing."

The titles of the songs alone show Viomak’s strong desire to see change in Zimbabwe: Uchaenda riini Mugabe; Ndofamba neDiaspora; Unoendepi Mugabe, Hatina Rugare MuZimbabwe, Izwi radaidzwa, Tapera Muzimbabwe; Zimbabwe mudumbu reZanu and Zimbabwe iripi.

While Viomak will find it an uphill task to distribute her protest album in Zimbabwe, readers can access the album on www.viomakmusic.com
