MUGABE BLEEDS ZIM DRY! | HARARE, ZIMBABWE – ZIMBABWE’S President Robert Mugabe (92) reportedly spent at least R495 million on foreign and domestic trips in the first 10 months of 2016.
According to Zimbabwe Independent, this put pressure on his cash-strapped government, which “is failing to buy painkillers for public hospitals”.The report said Mugabe’s trips outweighed expenditure by various government ministries as well as by Parliament.
Mugabe is currently on a month-long holiday.He left Harare for the Middle East last month with his entire family.
News Day reported on Friday that Mugabe was expected to travel “extensively in that region” and “visit Africa for a number of meetings, as well as China using Air Zimbabwe”.
