Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, who turns 90 this week, has travelled to Singapore for an eye operation, state media reported.
Mugabe’s spokesman George Charamba told The Herald newspaper that the veteran leader went to Singapore on Monday to have cataract surgery on his left eye.
“He has done the right eye (operation) and now he is going for the second one.
“This was a date set well before last year which the president has to honour,” Charamba was quoted as saying. — AFP
