Former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe’s health continues to be on the decline with the former leader now unable to walk.
Mugabe, 94, has been receiving treatment in Singapore for the past two months.
Zimbabwe president Emmerson Mnangagwa made the announcement on Saturday while addressing Zanu-PF party supporters at a rally.
“He is now old. Of course, he now is unable to walk but whatever he asks for we will provide,” Mnangagwa told hundreds of supporters in Mugabe’s home area of Zvimba, about 100km west of the capital Harare.
This month marked a year after Mugabe was toppled in a brief military intervention to end his 37-year grip on power.
Mnangagwa took over from Mugabe and was elected in disputed July 30 elections.
In a show of support to his predecessor, the president said that the government would provide the necessary support to the former president who was initially expected back in the country in October.
“We are looking after him. He is the founding father of the nation of Zimbabwe. He is our founding father of free Zimbabwe,” he said.
Mugabe is now expected back in Zimbabwe on November 30.
