Is Robert Mugabe Sick? Zimbabwe Government Says No
Is Robert Mugabe sick? According to the Zimbabwe Government, no he is not, and anyone that says so has a 'sick and evil mind'.
It was South Africa's Times newspaper who first reported the President Robert Mugabe was taken to a hospital in Dubai for treatment, but Zimbabwean officials were quick to respond that the 85-year-old was back in his country and in excellent health, and only had a short holiday in Dubai.
South African President Jacob Zuma is due to have talks with Robert Mugabe tomorrow.
A spokesman for Mr Zuma said the meeting was still scheduled to go ahead.
"We have not received any official communication about President Mugabe's health, as a result our plans have not changed," said Vincent Magwenya.
The South African Times said that Mugabe had been having specialist treatment in Dubai, but did not say for what. The reports came as Mr. Zuma was set to travel to the country.
