Mugabe returns from medical checkup

HARARE - President Robert Mugabe yesterday returned home in time for his 28th anniversary birthday celebrations in Marondera today.

Mugabe spent his 90th birthday on Friday in Singapore where he had gone for an eye operation.

George Charamba, Mugabe’s spokesperson, told the Daily News yesterday that his boss had landed back in the country and was ready for his bash.

“Yes he is back, and all is set for the celebrations tomorrow,” he said.

Mugabe, who is Africa’s oldest leader, was recently bestowed with esteemed seats in the regional Southern Africa Development Community (Sadc) and the continental African Union (AU) bodies.

Mugabe has ruled Zimbabwe for the past 34 years, featuring among the longest serving leaders in African history. 

The celebrations today, come a few weeks before his first born Bona weds her pilot husband Simba Chikore early next month.

At 90, Mugabe, though old, has managed to squash all succession debate within his party, shaming those labelled as faction leaders.

Mugabe sarcastically bragged that he had died several times according to rumours but managed to resurrect and remain fit, as he has been linked with various ailments including prostate cancer.

I can think, talk,speak bad about the President but deep down I know I have no hold over his life.I was not there when God created him,do I know why God has taken him this far ,no.But what I have realised in life is, the more I hate someone. the more that someone is blessed.I love you mr President and all you my fellow Zimbabweans.Enjoy your lives.
