Mugabe returns to Zimbabwe amid Health concerns
Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe has arrived home, after an overseas trip, following intense rumours that he was ill and had sought medical help in Dubai.
The world’s oldest head of state returned to the capital, Harare on Saturday, after leaving a regional Summit on Tuesday.
His spokesperson had denied reports that Mugabe, the target of near-daily protests in recent weeks, was ill.
Witnesses at the airport said the President looked cheerful and told people he had been away attending to family matters.
His absence had raised the level of uncertainty in the Southern African country, already in economic and political turmoil.
