In 2016, the government had to deny that he had died abroad during his annual vacation.

President Mugabe has declined to name a successor and his ruling Zanu-PF party has been riven by factionalism for years.

Despite President Mugabe’s advanced age, the party last year endorsed him as its candidate for the 2018 General Election.

Mugabe is not the only African president currently abroad for treatment for an undisclosed condition.
