Mugabe in Singapore for medical check-up

Zimbabwe’s former president Robert Mugabe is back in Singapore for medical check-up, a local privately-owned daily reported.

The 94-year-old ex-ruler “left the country two weeks ago after his blood pressure suddenly rose to dangerous levels”, one unnamed source told the NewsDay.

But another unidentified source who confirmed the trip, told paper that “it’s nothing serious. It is the usual check-ups and this one, in particular was scheduled”.

Mugabe was accompanied by his wife Grace, the paper said.

The first source also added that Mugabe had “trouble with his eye, which previously has been diagnosed with a cataract”.

No officials or close family sources were available for comment.
