Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, 93, left for Singapore on Wednesday. His spokesman George Charamba said the trip is for scheduled medical review.

Mugabe has flown overseas for his health amid such situation in the country when many major doctors and nurses of public hospitals are on a two-week strike demanding payment of 2016 bonuses that was due in December.

Meanwhile, the local media reports Mugabe is suffering from prostate cancer and he has gone to Singapore in relation to it. However, the president’s office has denied it and his aids reveal he has been suffering from eye cataract.

In 2011 the whistle-blowing site WikiLeaks revealed from a release of US diplomatic cable from 2008 that the Zimbabwean president is suffering from prostate cancer and his life span left is just five years.

Late last year the president was on a holiday to Asia for several weeks and rumor circulated in the country he has died abroad.

Meanwhile, his ruling party, ZANU-PF, has been divided in terms of successor. Some are in support of Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa while others prefer his 51-year-old wife Grace to be the next president.

Mnangagwa seems to be a leading contender.

Mugabe came to power in 1980.
