Critically Sick Mugabe Flown to Singapore in Private Jet Chartered by Cash-strapped Government - Breaking News

Zimbabwe’s former president Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace, have reportedly been flown out of the country for “emergency” medical treatment in Singapore.


The Mugabes left on Sunday on a flight chartered by President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government. A 2015 operation to remove her appendix is said to have continued to cause Grace discomfort, necessitating trips abroad for treatment.

Mugabe, 94, and Grace, 53, have “been struggling with poor health, regularly travelling to the southeast Asian country for medical attention”, the report said.
