Mugabe Returns From Eye Check In Singapore

Mugabe who turns 87 Monday was met by several government ministers from his Zanu (PF) party at Harare International airport.
Government sources said Mugabe looked fit and was in jovial mood and ready to celebrate his 87th birthday this week.Mugabe avoided talking to reporters on arrival and was immediately whisked away by his aides.

Last month, a British newspaper reported that Mugabe had undergone a prostate operation in Malaysia, but the president,s spin doctors dismissed the media reports as “naked lies” on his return. Mugabe, who has been in power since 1980, has been nominated by his party to stand again for president in elections expected later this year.The elections are expected to bring to an end the fragile coalition government between Zanu (PF) and the two factions of the MDC.
