PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe last week used the World Energy Forum in Dubai as an opportunity to secretly go for a medical check-up in Singapore.

Although there is no official confirmation of him having visited Singapore, the Zimbabwe Independent has established that Mugabe visited the Far East country after addressing the World Energy Forum on Tuesday last week even when other heads of state had left the event.
Mugabe left for Dubai last week Monday soon after addressing the Second All-Stakeholders’ Conference but sources said although he addressed the forum, his main destination was Singapore and the event was used as cover to visit specialist doctors without raising any suspicion in keeping up with the secrecy surrounding his health.
Speculation about Mugabe’s health has been mounting since reports first indicated he is suffering from prostate cancer which has metastasised and spread to other parts of the body.
Mugabe has, however, repeatedly denied these reports saying he is fit enough live up to his 100th birthday.
He claims to be only suffering from eye problems.
