Robert Mugabe touched down in South Africa yesterday for the first time since the military coup saga last year.
Seen as he is no longer flying the private life, Bob flew average Joe style to O.R Tambo, saying that, he did have eight guards who accompanied him. There was also sighting of a female who is said to be his nurse.
Suspicion is that Bob is in the country to not only visit his son, but to meet with his long-term allies. A passenger on the plane reported that they overheard a guard discussing possible arrangements.
“One of the guards was on the phone talking about 'colleagues from Pretoria”
Briefly.co.za learnt that the plane was suspiciously delayed.
“The plane was supposed to leave Harare at 7am. We only boarded at 10am. No reasons were given. When we were to take off the captain announced that 'former president RG Mugabe' was on board,” he said.
Ndivhuwo Mabaya, national Department of International Relations and Co-operation spokesperson, chose not to comment on the delay of the flight and the possible activities of Bob.
