Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe unable to walk, seeking treatment in Singapore

Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe unable to walk, seeking treatment in SingaporeFormer Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe has been receiving medical treatment in Singapore for the last two months and is no longer able to walk, though he should return home next week, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said on Saturday. Mr Mugabe, 94, who ruled the southern African nation for nearly four decades since independence from Britain in 1980, was forced to resign in November 2017 after an army coup. Mr Mnangagwa told ruling ZANU-PF supporters at a rally in Murombedzi, Mr Mugabe’s village some 100 km (60 miles) west of the capital Harare, his predecessor had been due to return on October 15 but that his poor health had delayed the journey. He did not say what treatment Mr Mugabe had been undergoing. “We have just received a message that he is better now and will return on November 30. "He can no longer walk but we will continue taking care of him,” Mr Mnangagwa said, referring to Mr Mugabe by his totem name Gushungo.

Officials often said he was being treated for a cataract,denying frequent reports by private local media that he had prostate cancer. Mr Mnangagwa, who won a disputed July 30 presidential vote, repeated the army’s previous justification for last year’s coup, saying his former mentor Mr Mugabe had been surrounded by criminals. When the army rolled its tanks into Harare, military leaders said they were targeting “criminals around the president.” A bitter Mr Mugabe said later, however, that the army’s action had forced him to resign.

Trump, Putin absent for leaders' symbolic walk in Paris rainUnited in the rain, world leaders walked slowly up the Champs-Elysees in Paris to mark a century since the end of World War I — but there were two notable absences, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. The line of black-clad leaders was reminiscent of another moment of unity: after the 2015 Charlie Hebdo jihadist attack, when senior officials from more than 40 countries marched through Paris to denounce terrorism. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump, who wore a cornflower — France’s war remembrance flower — in his lapel, had arrived separately “due to security protocols”.
