Director-General in the President’s Office Mr Isaac Moyo has said that Zimbabwe’s founding leader, the late former president, Robert Gabriel Mugabe, had wished to meet with President Emmerson Mnangagwa upon his return from Singapore where he was receiving treatment.
Moyo, who was the point man in liaisons between the State and the former First Family, said:
The former President hoped he was going to come back home and that he wished to see the President upon his return. We had told him that the President looked forward to seeing him upon his return and he had also expressed similar sentiments that he would be delighted to meet the President. And at that time, we were told that the last date of his medical engagements was the 17th of October and that soon after he would return home. A week after our return, I then got a call from Mrs Mugabe and she said that the treatment regime that the former President was having would no longer be extended to October, it would end in September instead and because of that, they were now scheduled to come back home at the end of September.
Meanwhile, Mugabe’s family spokesperson has said that the former ZANU PF boss died a bitterman particularly because the men who removed him from power were his most trusted lieutenants.
Mugabe who was 93 years old back then, later revealed that he had resigned to avoid bloodshed in the country.
His departure was however celebrated by Zimbabweans across all walks of life.
