Singaporean doctors reportedly gave up on the late former President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe while receiving treatment in the country.
This was revealed by President Emmerson Mnangagwa while addressing some Zanu PF supporters in New York.
Reports have it that Mugabe’s extreme old age and his advanced state of cancer ailment had gone beyond treatment.
“In fact, when we discussed about the issue (Mugabe’s illness), it turned out that treatment had stopped, doctors had stopped treatment, chemotherapy, one, because of age and also because the cancer had spread and it was not helping anymore.
“He would have come back home, but the family said they wanted to remain. Of course, they would have wanted me to come to Singapore, but also we had our Vice President General (Constantino) Chiwenga, who is in a military hospital in Beijing, who was going into a major operation and those two demands.”
Zimbabwe’s long serving leader died on 6 September after spending months on treatment in Singapore.
While Mugabe was frequenting the Asian country since his time as the country’s leader, a nephew to the once powerful President told NewZimbabwe.com recently that his health challenges deteriorated when he was forced out of his job via a military coup in 2017.
