A local paper reports that government sources told them that Mugabe had in fact gone to Singapore for a review of the pre-Christmas operation.

Mugabe, who turns 91 tomorrow, is battling prostate cancer and eye problems. Every year when he goes for his annual holidays in the Far East, Mugabe passes through Parkway Cancer Centre at Gleneagles Hospital in Singapore which offers state of the art hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery to prostate cancer patients.
