Zimbabwe’s Former First Lady, Grace Mugabe’s health is reported to be deteriorating very fast amid reports that doctors are giving her a little chance of survival.
Sources close to her indicate to media that her battle with an appendectomy operation in 2015 in Singapore is failing and that it could be a matter of time before she loses the fight.
Zimbabwe’s former president Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace, have reportedly been flown out of the country for “emergency” medical treatment in Singapore.
Speculation was rife that Mugabe’s life is in danger, but it turns out that Grace is the one fighting for her life.
Three years ago, Grace spent several weeks in Singapore, reportedly for an operation to remove her appendix, yet the private Zimbabwe Independent newspaper, citing family sources, said she actually had surgery for colon cancer.
Colon cancer is a very dangerous ailment, which claimed the life of the country’s former prime minister, Morgan Tsvangirai, in February this year. Tsvangirai died in a South African hospital at the age of 65.
“The truth is not being openly told,” said the doctor based in Hong Kong. “Mrs Mugabe is very ill, her days are numbered. She was told back in 2014 by her specialists that she had little time left. The people of Zimbabwe might be shocked to witness Mugabe burying his wife. You are a Christian nation, and this is the time your prayers are needed for your first lady.”
Other government informants in the capital said the former first lady was strong and had been putting up a brave face all along, “but she is in pain”. President Emmerson Mnangagwa is footing the former first couple’s medical bills and has directed that their air travel arrangements to their Singapore doctors be upgraded.
