Zimbabwe’s former president Robert Mugabe, 93, has reportedly left the country for routine medical checks in Singapore – the nonagenarian’s first foreign trip since his ouster in November.
According to Reuters, a state security official, who chose to remain anonymous because he was not authorised to speak to the media, said that Mugabe was accompanied by his family and aides.
The former states man, who ruled the southern African country for 37 years, was expected to make a stop-over in Malaysia, where his daughter, Bona, was expecting a second child.
“He has gone for a routine medical trip to Singapore,” said the security official.
Another government official said last month that Mugabe had been due to travel to Singapore on November 16 but was unable to leave because the military had confined him to his private home the previous day, the report said.
