Zimbabwe leader Mugabe has collapsed: report

via Zimbabwe leader Robert Mugabe has collapsed: report 5 January 2014 www.theage.com.au

An insider from Zimbabwe’s ruling government has posted information suggesting that longtime president of the African nation Robert Mugabe has collapsed.

Happyton Bonyongwe, the Director-General of the Zimbabwean Central Intelligence Organisation, has reportedly tightened security at State House in Zimbabwe, a day after fears for Mugabe’s health surfaced, according to internet commenter Baba Jukwa.

Baba Jukwa, an insider in the ruling Zanu-PF party who uses a Facebook page to expose corruption in the regime, on Saturday reported rumours that Mr Mugabe had collapsed.

However, he added that Mr Mugabe’s press secretary, George Charamba, had denied that the President was ill.

There have been rumours for several years that Mugabe, who turns 90 next month, has prostate cancer.

Baba Jukwa, who calls himself “a disgrunteld Zanu-PF insider”, said on Saturday that Mr Mugabe had “gone on his final visit” to his doctor. Mr Mugabe had previously offered a $US300,000 reward for the unmasking of Baba Jukwa.

Baba Jukwa has successfully exposed corruption in Zimbabwe in the past, and last year he warned that Edward Chininga, a former Zanu-PF member of parliament who had been critical of Mugabe, would die soon.

Weeks later, Chininga died in car accident. Staged road accidents are a common form of assassination in Zimbabwe.

In his latest post, Baba Jukwa says that security has been tightened at State House but there is no information on Mugabe. 

“If it is true that he has died, they are likely to keep his body refrigerated until security chiefs pass the nod to announce,” Baba Jukwa said. 

“When that will be? It could even be 6 months later. This is the way to do it in line with protocol. 

“Meanwhile Pray for your country Great Zimbabweans so that there is no bloodshed.”

    and when Mugabe dies the only county who will know is Zimbabwe, it will not even make headline news anywhere in the world…compare mandella’s legacy to Mugabe!!! OH YES MUGABE DOES NOT HAVE A LEACY

  2. suziq says:

    SORRY LEGACY

    varikurwara here baba vedu daivapona

  4. Chatambudza12 says:

    If he dies now he will have achieved his wishes to leave a country in chaos! The in fighting in his party is exactly what he wanted. Knowing that no one will mourn him, at least kana mukasara muchipondana ndiko kuti mugo muchema.

  5. bona says:

    Too good to be true,it will be good news if that dog dies

  6. Jonny says:

    I write on behalf of the millions in Zimbabwe that let us hope this time he is dead. Ever this this educated but unlearned idiot came to power, my country has suffered. What good has Mugabe been to Zimbabwe ? Consider the corruption he will not tackle, the hunger, joblessness.

    Yet it will never seize to amaze me, why after all these years Mugabe fails to act as leader of all Zimbabweans instead of just his party .I compare Mugabe to other despots like Museveni of Uganda or Kagame of Rwanda. Just like Mugabe these two despots steal elections and murder people, yet these two have uplifted their countries economically. Yet Mugabe is said to be educated.

  7. munzwa says:

    It has to happen, he collapses the economy and now its his turn..

  8. I am not the one! says:

    The vultures which abound in ZANU PF are already circling but really is this a case of “better the devil you know” as those waiting in the wings are evil. Why are the Zim people so cowardly… one would have thought that they would have gone back to the bush and waged another war? I suppose as long as China, Russia and Cuba could not be bothered in supporting them and they would not be getting anything for free they would rather sit and do nothing.

  9. Moses says:

    It is unlikely in the extreme that there is any truth in this rumour which surfaces every January when he goes off for treatment. Only one thing is certain , nothing will happen in Zimbabwe until he gets back. With a totally powerless ” government ” in place , not even a cabinet meeting.They don’t believe anything is wrong and will continue therefore to do nothing

  10. gaza says:

    The old hag is still alife but no man can cheat death and soon we will be celebrating his death. His already a cabbage ask grace she can confess to you all dat engine yaparara kana jump start wont work. A man with no shame at all, what kind of person, Chisiyai baba mutambe navana nevazukuru kumba nyika iendemberi. You can zanupf is full of fools as they all admit noone is better tham mugabe to lead them. A man who led zimbabwe to food,cash shortages, hyper inflation, cholera and the list goes on and this is the guy you call yo messiah Zvakatooma

  11. RR says:

    Ah yes, our good friend Baba Jukwa a very clever ZPF counter intelligence propaganda initiative!

  12. Clemence Munyukwi says:

    Whether Mugabe is dead or alive the truth should surface by 21 February when he is expected to host the mother of all parties.

  13. Marhorhorho says:

    Mugabe MUST NOT die now

  14. cdeirshroud says:

    Long live Cde Mugabe, a true Afurikan icon!

  15. easily fooled says:

    Never be fooled, BaJukwa is testing waters, remember how he duped you on elections and all the lies! He is a ZPF headboy getting information for spying purposes. All lies, to hell with Jukwa stuff

  16. Senzachena says:

    If there is any truth in the rumour, which I doubt, I can only hope that his death was slow and painful.

  17. Manuchi says:

    Mandela died in June last year and it was only announced in December , after things were agreed by the government and foreign delegates etc . So for all we know , he might just be on holiday making a deal at St Peters Gate .

  18. takeover says:

    Long live cde Mugabe!

  19. There is no good reason why i should say long live r g Mugabe because this man has failed me

  20. Tafadzwa says:

    What does Mugabe think about so many people wishing him dead ? Does he care ? He has never accepted fault for his part in the zillion economy , the laughing stock of the world. The corruption headlines in Zimbabwe. How come he does not react to all this ? His know reaction is to blame everthing on sanctions. is there anyone sane to believe it is the fault of Geiarge Bush.

    Instead we hear he is on holiday ? Does Mugabe even know what percentage of Zimbabweans are unemployed ?

    It says a lot about we Zimbabweans that we tolerate such a heartless person to be out leader, whether Nikuk trickery or not

  21. jubojubogha says:

    We live everything to the lord, whether Mugabe is dead or alive, it’s non of your business. How long are you going to live you who wants Mugabe dead.

  22. Khaya'bonina says:

    Whatever is fine , 90 years what do you expect , he must go for one good reason that is we need change of leadership , he is an obstactle to that , thats the undisputed truth .

  23. iyvine says:

    Long live R.G Mugabe,#true_combrade

  24. SAMAZ says:

    I must say its not very nice having every tom dick and harry wishing u dead.when mandela died people celebrated.noone really knows if he is dead but some a already celebrating.i mean whats e difference here.rather i think we should pray for him and his soul.

  25. jerslem says:

    We should patiently wait guys when the time comes we shall know why hurry , it is the way for every one of us good or bad, l strongly suggest that we pray for one another,it is never stranger to die,
