Mr Robert Mugabe reportedly flew to Singapore for medical check-ups two weeks ago, with sources saying the 94-year-old ex-leader was rushed out after his health suddenly deteriorated.

“He slipped out of the country two weeks ago after his blood pressure suddenly rose to dangerous levels. He also had trouble with his eye which previously has been diagnosed with a cataract,” a source close to the former Zanu-PF leader claimed.

Family sources said Mugabe had just left for routine medical check-up, adding it was nothing serious.

“It’s nothing serious. It is the usual, check-ups and this one in particular was scheduled. The former First Lady Grace is also with him,” News Day heard.
