Mugabe health report dismissed

8:36 am on 11 April 2012

Zimbabwe has dismissed reports that President Robert Mugabe is fighting for his life in a Singapore hospital, as a lot of hogwash.

Mr Mugabe, 88, was last seen in public two weeks ago. His health has been subject of speculation in recent years, with some reports saying he has prostate cancer.

But Government ministers are refusing to disclose his whereabouts. Mr Mugabe is thought to have left for Singapore more than a week ago on a prviate visit.
