President arrives back home from Singapore


President Mugabe accompanied by VP Mujuru and senior government officials at the Harare International Airport.

Herald Reporter
President Mugabe returned home from Singapore where he spent part of his annual leave yesterday morning.
His spokesperson, Mr George Charamba, who is also the Permanent Secretary for Information, Media and Broadcasting Services, said President Mugabe would spend the remainder of his leave in Zimbabwe.
The Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces has traditionally taken his annual leave in January.

Vice President Joice Mujuru continues as Acting President until President Mugabe’s leave is over.

    Welcome home Uncle Bob,there’s is a crisis here!

      Ohh oh ,I spoke before I realised that photo is from January last year,how gullible I am I should have known better.

    We hope the President’s foreign break and usual health checks/treatment have left him fit and recharged enough to face critical and gruelling months ahead.
    There’s many urgent matters to resolve with very little time available. Currently Cabinet is unable/unwilling to make any substantive decisions without President Mugabe’s presence, further delays to essential Government business while the Nation is burning, even through continuing his leave in Zimbabwe, will be frowned upon by those who consider dealing with urgent national problems warrants cancelling all leave until further notice.
    Many important matters require urgent attention, starvation and malnutrition looming in many areas with negligible grain imports available, major industrial projects ground to a halt, massive corruption ignored among Ministers and senior civil servants…..
    Basically no advances achieved in any of the election manifesto promises, and no finance available for Zim Asset projects.
    Remember US President Harry S. Truman had a sign on his desk, “The Buck Stops Here”!

        Old photo

    • MugarbageIsUseless

      Yes the President’s photo has arrived. We haven’t seen him on TV as usual. So what’s the truth now?

  • Kwekwe326

    Why does this photo show the President returning from the AU summit in Addis Ababa in January 2013?

    • Bishop Kunonga

      Didn’t see any live coverage, don’t bother watching ZBC. Anyone recorded this rare live appearance? Stick it on youtube so we can all have a look. In the meantime should we pray for him?

  • Chikonzi

    The old photo dates from January 28 2013, Mugabe returning from the African Union summit in Ethiopia.
    Obvious question, why no real-time ZBC coverage and photos of a fit and healthy President Mugabe arrival?

  • wasiiiha

    so is the pic to prove he is stiil alive

  • Sungano

    When trying to use pictures to prove something recent, try and dig deeper into your archives, to say back in 2006 or 2007 so that no one notices that this picture belongs to 2013, otherwise it becomes a futile attempt that only fuels the speculation about the President’s whereabouts. In the meantime i will just speculate that the concerned journalist who uploaded this picture together with the story is just a trouble causer. Long Live the President!

    I hope this is a genuine picture contrary to reports from other media reports. If it is not, then whoever is responsible will pay the price from me,irrespective of who you are. I am tired of people taking advantage of the President Mugabe circumstances, whom we all need to learn something from. MARK MY WORDS
