It’s all in God’s hands- Mugabe


President Robert Mugabe who turns 90 in exactly a month today said he did not know how he had lived this long. “It’s all in God’s hands,” he said at the funeral of his sister Bridget who was 12 years his junior. Bridget died on Sunday after spending three years on life support and was buried at the Mugabe rural home at Kutama in Zvimba. She collapsed at the burial of her elder sister Sabina in 2010 and was at Parirenyatwa Hospital until her death. Mugabe’s health has been under the spotlight for the past two weeks after the faceless facebook character Baba Jukwa claimed he had collapsed and died. Mugabe was on holiday in the Far East. Though his spokesmen said he was alive but on holiday, speculation went into high gear when Mugabe returned from holiday but was not shown on local television. The rumours were quashed on Sunday when Mugabe was seen on television welcoming people coming to pay their condolences. Even then the reports focussed on his health saying he was looking frail.
