Robert Mugabe unable to walk; seeks treatment in Singapore
Former President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe who is unable to walk again, has been receiving medical treatment in Singapore over the last two months.
94-year-old Robert Mugabe who is expected to return home next week, ruled the southern African nation for nearly four decades since independence from Britain in 1980, was forced to resign in November 2017 after an army coup.
Speaking to ZANU-PF supporters at a rally in Murombedzi, Mr. Mugabe’s village some 100 km (60 miles) west of the capital Harare, President Emmerson Mnangagwa who did not disclose the treatment Robert Mugabe who is unable to walk had been undergoing, said his predecessor was expected to return on October 15 but that his poor health had delayed the journey.
“We have just received a message that he is better now and will return on November 30.
“He can no longer walk but we will continue taking care of him,” Mr. Mnangagwa said, referring to Mr. Mugabe by his totem name Gushungo.
