The 94-year-old former President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe is unable to walk because of ill health, President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said.
Mugabe has been in Singapore for treatment for an undisclosed illness for the past two months, he added.
The former president also made several medical trips there towards the end of his time in power.
President Mnangagwa was addressing a rally in his predecessor’s home area when he talked about the former leader’s health.
“He is now old. Of course, he now is unable to walk but whatever he asks for we will provide,” the AFP news agency quotes him as saying.
