Former Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe’s new Patrick Zhuwao has told mourners at a memorial service organised by the Economic Freedom Fighters that Mugabe had rented a house in Singapore because he was tormented by the ruling ZANU-PF and President Emmerson Munangagwa.
Zhuwao further revealed that Mugabe only went hospital five days before his death. Mugabe died five days ago at a hospital in Singapore. He ruled Zimbabwe for 37-years and was finally forced to step down by his army in 2017.

“Because President Mugabe stood for young people, some of his colleagues who he fought with would not be able to recognise that young people are the future of Africa and would liberate it economically,” added Zhuwao.
“They chose to take arms against President Mugabe because he was committed to passing the torch to young people.”
