“He is fine. I have been to see him, he is quite jovial. He is actually looking forward to his new life, farming and staying at the rural home. He has taken it well,” Leo Mugabe, son of Mugabe’s late sister Sabina, told AFP.
He added that Robert Mugabe’s wife Grace was now concentrating on plans to build a university in his honour.
In August, Zimbabwe announced plans to build the $1-billion post-graduate university in Mazowe, 35 kilometres (20 miles) outside Harare.
