Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa says former President Robert Mugabe has been receiving medical treatment in Singapore for the last two months and is no longer able to walk.
Concise News recalls that the 94-year-old Mugabe, who ruled the country for nearly four decades since independence from Britain in 1980, was forced to resign in November 2017 after an army coup.
Giving an update on the health status of the former President, Mnangagwa told ruling ZANU-PF supporters that his predecessor had been due to return on October 15 but his poor health delayed the journey.
The Zimbabwean President, however, failed to mention what treatment Mugabe had been undergoing.
His words: “We have just received a message that he is better now and will return on Nov. 30. He can no longer walk but we will continue taking care of him.”
During his later years as President of Zimbabwe, Mugabe made several medical trips to Singapore.
Zimbabwean Officials often said he was being treated for a cataract, denying frequent reports by private local media that he had prostate cancer.
