Former Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe is still hospitalised in Singapore where he went for medical attention four months ago.
Through a statement released released to media houses, President Mnangagwa said that the ailing 95-year-old was responding well to treatment for an undisclosed ailment.
“Founding president and founding father of our nation (comrade) Robert 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 under observation for much longer from April this year when he left for his latest routine check-up.
“I am greatly pleased to inform the nation that the former president continues to make steady progress towards eventual recovery and that his condition is remarkably stable for his age,” he added.
