Mugabe is dying of cancer – REPORT


Published: August 27, 2010


Mugabe is dying of cancer – REPORT thumbnail

An unconfirmed report published on an online publication says that Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe is actively considering successors after his doctor told him he is losing the battle against cancer.

The African Aristocract reported that his urologist Awang Kechick visited him in Zimbabwe and told him that his condition is advancing faster than any treatment could delay it.

The report says that Mugabe has been struggling with undisclosed health issues for a long while, although he has returned to public life looking healthy. However, his health has deteriorated dramatically in the last months, with some images showing him unable to walk without help during a recent trip to Uganda.

Mugabe’s condition is allegedly so volatile that his physicians don’t leave his side, and the State House has been equipped with state-of-the-art resuscitation facilities.

There are also assertions that Zanu-PF officials ‘are aware’ of Mugabe’s ill health, and the succession issue has been high on the list of topics recently.

According to the article, Mugabe seems to have surprised everyone by dumping presidential hopefuls and selecting Simba Makoni.

Makoni left the Zanu-PF to start his own party, and he seems to have support from both the Zanu-PF and its opposition the MDC, as well as the media.

If Mugabe wins the elections in 2011 and institutes Makoni as president, Makoni will most certainly make an impression with the public, while, with Zimbabwe’s economic growth due to increase over the coming five years, he will also take credit for these developments.

This might be bad news for the MDC though, as four years is enough to rebrand the current ruling party.

    Mudhara is alive and kicking. The man sends rumours as CIO projects to gauge public response. Malawians are very strong people they can reach 140 years. Mugabe has used a divide and rule approach and to play an end game well he has to test public response before playing the next move in the political game.

    I know that insurance companies test policy holders frequently in order to determine benefits and adjust monthly premiums. When they do their tests they bring all the medical kits. Those who are not conversant with medical procedures might take it as a serious operation. The nurses are just doing a rotine test on Mugabe. The oldman is alive, we will have him for the next 10 years. One has to watch him addressing a rally at his age, his stamina is surprising. He stands upon his two feet while addressing a rally for 45 minutes at his age. It disputes the cancer story.

    The surprising thing with the MDC cheerleaders is, they are pinning their hopes of getting into power thru the death of the oldman. The MDC IS A PARTY OF OPPORTUNISTS.

    Right Guys,i want to put my final nail on guvnor’s coffin now.i’m not here just for roaming here and there in this forum and i’m not working for this anyway as some of you are saying.i’m a managing director of a big company,so i do have lot of things to do, but i cannot leave people like guvnor,tindo and makwembere in the darkness and also full of ignorance about how zimbabwe came to be. if we zimbabweans want to be a well off country,please listen to my advice,Guvnor don’t you want land for your own? don’t you want your own company from nowhere i.e black empoerement? i’m not decampaining mdc-t,it has decampained it self through calling for illegal sanctions on its citizens hence the party left with people at heart is zanu pf and its president Robert Gabriel Mugabe.

We are cautiuosly taking this news because the old man is a survivor, he survived RF bullets and jails then Morgan Tsvangirai ballot blows now he may draw a shocker against cancer who knows?.

    If he dies,i will attend the funeral just to make sure he is dead and will not ressurect.We are where we are becoz of HIm .Zimbabwe is our country too and we need to enjoy there not being called foreigners all the time

  11. Guvnor on Fri, 27th Aug 2010 7:32 am 

    But may he none the less live long enough to see Zimbabwe prospering mightily without his brand of leadership and being ruled by someone he detests.

    well l dont wish someone to die but with the way kamudhara mugabe has caused other (many many ) people to flee the country and killing his own people for supporting his party aah ngakafe zvako.l will celebrate his death more than anything.zimbabwe is bleeding sufferring nokuda kwekadhara aka.Achafa chete

  14. Shaun on Fri, 27th Aug 2010 9:04 am 

    May his death be a long and painful one – so he can at least get a glimpse of the pain he has inflicted!

  15. T.Musango on Fri, 27th Aug 2010 10:46 am 

    What about the chubby-cheecked-one, who has caused so much suffering and death to many Zimbos with the promise that he was real and would take them to the promised land, yet he ended up joining the so-called killer and now claiming that the GNU is working. Vamwe dzave shirikadzi coz varume vakafa believing they were fighting along with real patriots yet the patriots are now enjoying and sharing with the so-called murderous.

  16. Cde Digden on Fri, 27th Aug 2010 10:55 am 

    Lest we forget,mugabe has done nothing wrong that needs to be heralded as the evil one.have the white man ever prosecuted themselves for tormenting the black man from years i memorial,the slave trade,apartheid etc.the black man has suffered in the hands of the that the blackman wants what belongs to him,he becomes the devil.the white man knows how to twist people`s minds eg demonising other religions that do not support their actions.they know how to label someone as evil.if anyone of you people listening to the whites existed back in the days when zimbabwe was colonised.our land takedn by the whites,our cattle and we were not seen as human.the white man feels that they are God and can judge them.Mbuya Nehanda said that her bones will rise.she knew the wrath that the white man had inflicted on that the owners want what belongs to them,its now invasion and the people are evil.the parameters of ownership are done by their(whiteman) system of deeds, pen and paper and so on coz they knew their acts will eventually catch up with them and our blackman parameter is by heart.this land is our birth right and no-one has the right of taking it away from us.our heart lies with this land. now the few misguided fellows are there to celebrate this news,that`s unheard of,the worst thing coz it`s not up to anyone of us to judge,only God in the Heavens has the power to judge.

    Our so called Honourable RG Mugabe ! we are not judges but Our Mighty God is the one whom you will face , before you die sir give your self time & try you calculate how many people you had killed since you started rule, how many people died because of you, how many people suffering just bcoz of you, how many kids left being orphans whilst their parents left your country to earn a living , how many marriage divorces have you caused . Cant you see the mess that you had caused to peope , Remember that God is for us all, i wish you live many more bcoz you have to pay your dues while alive

    I just beseech the Almighty God to delay the demise of this man as he cannot go into the next world before atoning for his sins here on earth. This man has done terrible things to our country and altered the fate and lives of millions. He must be tried and face justice so that any other pretenders in his party know what awaits them at the end of the tunnel if they follow his ways. He must not die now. Not at least before he has gone to the Hague.

  24. Nhamo C Tutisani on Fri, 27th Aug 2010 5:43 pm 

    The fact is that he is incrementally dying, no matter what from.
    Many hopeful Zanu PF cadres have awaited his demise for far too long.
    Who will the High Priestess Grace shack up with next?
    It is good to know that the Gushongo genomes have been widely captured well before his demise.
    Despite his reliance on spirits, Gabriel will not be able to prescribe anymore – particularly from his everlasting underground internment.

    Ag, I am not suprised at all by this article, I know how Euro-centric medias are, they are forever speculating the health of the leaders they don’t like. thats what they do to Castro,Kim and now HE Mugabe, yet they don’t care to update us on the health of Ariel Sharon the former Israel Prime minister who has been in Coma since 2006. to hell,hell,hell,hell with this nonsense!! HE Mugabe as well and fine,shame on you sellout,western puppets

  26. Cheers on Fri, 27th Aug 2010 6:13 pm 

    At the fullness of time so shall it be, so why worry. No one has lived for ever we shall all pass on. You shall not rejoice over somebodies suffering, regardless who it is.

    he must pay for his sins … he affected all our lives in major ways .. he has seperated families for ever because of his lust for power /// he must suffer here on earth and in hell as well for all eternity ..

    l like the way some visionery writers express themselves here. Vana Mwari vepanyika muripo kuda kuparadza hupenyu hwevanhu. Can someone stand up and tell us who and who exactly did Mugabe kill, murder , assasinate or whatever. Wakudubuka nemota kwanzi ndimugabe, afa ne aids, mugabe murimapenzi vana Enuff.

  34. Khule on Sat, 28th Aug 2010 10:24 am 

    Believe it or not,praise him or hate him,his day is nearing so as everyone’s.Probably it will be me or you first before him.I wish he repents and confesses before his final destiny.Chinobhururuka chinomhara.Ngatinamatirei remangwana rakanaka renyika yedu.Avo vanorarama nekurwadzisa vamwe,Mwari achavatonga zvinoenderana nemabasa avo.Kudai zvinhu zvikanaka,tiraramevo tichifara takasununguka zvinoita dzimwe nyika.

    if that old man die i think there is gonna be a bloodbath in zimbabwe.yes we all hate/love the man,the mujuru and the mnangagwa factions are sure going to fight so much tha it will spill over to the common person after this man dies.

  36. Einstein on Sat, 28th Aug 2010 11:27 am 

    His Exellence is okay. Plus even if he was diagnoside with cancer its quite natural. whoever licked that information is an idiot becuase thats his personal life that no one should know about that expert if he had said that on his on.

    Mugabe will not die until all his sisters are gone. Like Chiyangwa who was no. 7 of 14, now he is no. 1. Mark my words. There is a reason for that. I myself dont want Mugabe to die and wont celebrate on his death coz one day ndichafa. I want to see Mugabe live to see Tsvangirai as President and see the country progressing.

    Mugabe is an repentent dictator killer who survives thru support from his toilet papers called Zanu PF supporters. We don’t need him for good of Zimbabwe. He is racing against time to destroy as much as possible and kill as many people before leaving office.

  42. julliana zivanai on Mon, 30th Aug 2010 7:34 pm 

    I have made peace with death and not scared to go and this was when I joined MDC and I have seen pipo abducted maimed, tortured, raped by 17 men, paid from my meagre earnings hospital treamentfor the 2008 victims, so kufa kwaBOB is going to be the icing on the cake, ndirikutoti Mwari manonoka.I always laugh with a good friend of mine kuti Mwari akauya kuZimbabwe nhasi unofa ngekurohwa nevanhu because he is not answering our prayers, dzekuti maZanu ngaafe.

    Far from celebrating M’gaxa’s impending demise, I advise caution as ever so often our hopes have been dashed cruelly. Nature will take its course and he will definately die. But truely what’s shocking is the degenarated state he is in. No wonder speculation is riffe. Yes he is an octogenarian, but he looks to me like he has finally reckoned with something more powerful than his physician, and thas DEATH.

    This is Africa. He will be replaced by yet another despotic tinpot dictator. Don’t hold your breath oh Zimbabweans, hold onto your horses, it will always be a bumpy ride….

    When Morgan or the others get a taste of Hugo Boss, Chanel, Christian Dior, Diesel etc, they will be no different. Power corrupts, absolute power crrupts absolutely.

    In Africa, there are no success stories, there is no hope, it is the “Dark Continent” for a reason – a home to dictators, scoundrels and thieves. And yet another one is waiting in the wings to take over from “Killer Bob”
