Ailing Mugabe now using wheelchair

When Zimbabwe’s controversial First Lady announced that Mugabe would rule from a wheelchair, many dismissed it as one of her now well known hallucinations.

Today she has been proved right.

Mugabe’s Cabinet ministers have today presented the frail leader with a mobile wheelchair to “enable him navigate his way around his office as well as at home”.

The mobile chair, otherwise ordinarily referred to as a wheelchair, was presented as a belated birthday gift during a ceremony at his office. Critics said it confirmed that old age had taken its toll on the Zanu-PF leader who turned 93 in February.

Mugabe thanked the ministers for coming up with the idea of the gift, saying this was an indication of a good working spirit in his Zanu-PF government.

“I thank all of you for putting your heads together to come up with this gift,” he said as he took delivery of the special mobile chair which insiders claimed was bought in China.

“The gift shows the team spirit which should always prevail all times in the delivery of service to the nation.”

But there was derision on social media and in the opposition as critics said the development confirmed Mugabe was “incapacitated”, citing advanced age and alleged ill-health.
