Sydney, Jan. 5: Zimbabwe’s long-time President Robert Mugabe had collapsed, an insider has revealed.
Happyton Bonyongwe, the Director-General of the Zimbabwean Central Intelligence Organisation, reportedly tightened security at State House in Zimbabwe, a day after fears for Mugabe’s health surfaced.
According to Internet commenter Baba Jukwa, an insider in the ruling Zanu-PF party who uses a Facebook page to expose corruption in the regime, reported rumours that Mugabe had collapsed.
However, he added that Mugabe’s press secretary, George Charamba, had denied that the President was ill, Sydney Morning Herald reports.
There have been rumours for several years that Mugabe, who turns 90 next month, has prostate cancer.
Jukwa said Mugabe had ‘gone on his final visit’ to his doctor. (ANI)
