- The Zimbabwe founding president has been in hospital for months
- Reports from the state however suggest he is making a decent recovery at an unnamed hospital in Singapore
- President Edward Mnangagwa reportedly sent officials to check up on Mugabe
Former Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe is hospitalized in Singapore, TUKO.co.ke has learnt.
Zimbabwe’s current head of state Edward Mnangagwa issued the update in a statement, although he did not reveal what Mugabe was ailing from.
He however assured that the former President was responding to treatment and was “recovering well”.
“Mugabe remains detained at a hospital in Singapore where he is receiving medical attention. Unlike in the past when the former president would require just about a month for this, his physicians this time around determined that he be kept for much longer, from early April this year when he left for his routine check-up,” a statement from Mnangagwa said.
A team of officials have already been sent to the unnamed hospital in Singapore to check on the Mugabe’s progress.
"The team that visited Mugabe reported that he was "responding well to treatment" and that "because of the good progress he is making (comrade) Mugabe could be released fairly soon."
There has been a wave of concern about the health of the 95-year old in recent months, with reports even suggesting he was unable to speak.
It has now been months since he was hospitalized and the state says he is having trouble walking.
