President Mugabe completes mission


PRESIDENT Mugabe is well and has successfully completed his mission at the just-ended India-Africa Summit Forum, says his spokesperson, Cde George Charamba.

Dismissing stories doing the rounds in the private Press and on social media that India Prime Minister Narendra Modi helped President Mugabe to break a fall during yesterday’s summit, Cde Charamba said only fault finders would spend a second on such an incident.

“It is a very minor incident in a big heroic act and only fault finders will spend a second on it.

“President Mugabe is well and has accomplished his mission. He is due in the country at the weekend,” said Cde Charamba.

President Mugabe stumbled as he walked towards Prime Minister who was welcoming him to the summit and did not require a helping hand as what has gone viral in the private media and the social network.

After the much-hyped incident, President Mugabe went on to deliver his keynote address as the co-chairperson of the India-Africa Forum Summit where he called for a reform of the United Nations, saying the current scenario recognises other nations as giants and others as dwarfs.

President Mugabe actively participated at the summit’s closing ceremony last night where himself, Prime Minister Modi, and African Union Commission chairperson, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma unveiled commemorative stamps and coins before the thousands of delegates.

President Mugabe continued with his busy schedules this morning where he had closed door meetings with Equatorial Guinea President Teodoro Nguema Mbasogo and South Sudan President, Salva Kiir.
