MUGABE WANTED TO FLEE TO SA : ZHUWAO


Former president, Robert Mugabe would have sought refuge in South Africa had it not been for Grace’s assault case, according to Patrick Zhuwao.

Grace has a case hanging in South Africa after she beat up model Gabriella Engels in a Johannesburg hotel room two years ago.

“For me, and I think for a lot of members in the family, we owe an immense debt of gratitude to Grace for caring for the former president. What she did for Mugabe during the time he was in Singapore was done without complaint by her and her son, Tinotenda Mugabe.

“Given that he was a 95-year-old man, this meant assisting him with a lot of things, including bathing, feeding and exercising him. That young man [Tinotenda] was forced to grow up quickly and be a man,” he told City Press.

“Mugabe had no doctor looking after him. Mrs Mugabe had to train staff to assist the family. He was looked after by domestic workers who had no medical training; these are the people who were assisting Mrs Mugabe to look after her husband.

“When he needed to go on regular trips to see the doctor, they had to order the equivalent of Uber, called Grab – a Singaporean transport company offering this service,” said Zhuwao.

Mugabe had opted to rather die in a foreign country – away from most of his colleagues who had ostracised him and blamed him for everything that went wrong.

He said that, even when “Mugabe knew that his life was slipping away and could have quite easily said: ‘Take me back to Zimbabwe; I am going to die in Zimbabwe,’ he had opted to rather die in a foreign country – away from most of his colleagues who had ostracised him and blamed him for everything that went wrong”.
