Mugabe quashes rumours about ill health flies to Malawi


President Robert Mugabe flew to Malawi yesterday for that country’s 50th independence anniversary quashing rumours about his ill-health. Reports from Malawi confirmed that Mugabe arrived in Lilongwe at 3pm and inspected a guard of honour before proceeding Mtunthama State Lodge. A London-based Zimbabwe radio station reported on Friday that Mugabe had collapsed on Wednesday soon after his speech that whites farmers should not own land in Zimbabwe. SW Radio Africa said it had received unconfirmed reports that Mugabe had collapsed soon after the speech and his ill-health seems to have been confirmed by the fact that he was not at the home of the late Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front politburo member Stanley Sakupwanya on Thursday when other leaders went to pay their respects. Mugabe is 90 years old but there is still a lot of speculation about his health. Mugabe himself has even joked about it saying he has died so many times and risen that he beats Jesus Christ because Jesus only died once and resurrected.
