Ail­ing Mu­gabe can­not walk

Weekend Argus (Sunday Edition) - - METRO - |

FOR­MER Zim­bab­wean leader Robert Mu­gabe has been re­ceiv­ing med­i­cal treat­ment in Sin­ga­pore for the past two months and is no longer able to walk, though he should re­turn home next week, Pres­i­dent Em­mer­son Mnan­gagwa said yes­ter­day.

Mu­gabe, 94, who ruled the south­ern African na­tion for nearly four decades, was forced to re­sign in Novem­ber 2017 after an army coup.

Mnan­gagwa told rul­ing ZANU-PF sup­port­ers at a rally in Murombedzi, Mu­gabe’s vil­lage, that his pre­de­ces­sor had been due to re­turn on Oc­to­ber 15 but that his poor health had de­layed the jour­ney.

He did not say what treat­ment Mu­gabe had been un­der­go­ing.
