Mugabe, prior to his ouster in 2017, had been in and out of hospital in the latter stages of his presidential stint.

"He is now old. Of course, he now is unable to walk but whatever he asks for we will provide," he said as quoted by AFP.

As YEN.com.gh reported earlier, Mugabe was forcefully ejected from power after a resolute intervention from the army in 2017.

Prior to his ousting, Mugabe had served as head of state for a staggering 37 years in a reign which not many would have imagined would end in the manner it did.

Regardless the 94-year old has established himself in the history books not only for his lengthy tenure, but also because of some of his infamous quotes which make for nice comedy in the 21st century.
