This information was unveiled by President Emmerson Mnangagwa in an interview with state-run media before the country’s Independence Day celebrations on Thursday.
Emmerson Mnangagwa said he is in regular contact with the man he toppled in a military coup in November 2017 to inquire about his state of health.
“He does not feel well … Currently, he is not in the country. He left on April 2 in Singapore, he will be away for about 29 days and he will come back. I make sure that I make sure that he receives treatment, that he is taken to Singapore and brought back, that all the installations are put in place and that this is done “.
When he was president, Mugabe often traveled to Singapore to receive specialized treatment from foreign doctors.
However, at age 95 and visibly weaker than before, the health of Robert Mugabe is more and more worrying. His family and doctors have always been discreet about his health.
According to a US diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks in 2011, Gideon Gono, then governor of the central bank, revealed that Mugabe was suffering from prostate cancer that could cause his death in three to five years from 2008.
Mugabe, who said he will live up to a hundred years, miraculously fought the disease and survived many of his wartime colleagues.
