President Robert Mugabe celebrated his 90th birthday today having spent more than a third of his life as leader of Zimbabwe.
Robert Mugabe celebrated his 90th birthday at a party-come-political rally in a football stadium, held a few days late due to a trip to Singapore for what aides said was a cataract operation.
Mugabe appeared to show no signs of ill health after returning from Singapore and his aides have denied speculation he has been treated for prostate cancer.
Zimbabwe's sole ruler since the former Rhodesia gained independence from Britain in 1980, Mugabe is under Western sanctions. He denies human rights abuses and election fraud and blames Britain for smearing his name.
Robert Mugabe turned 90 today, celebrating his birthday not in his native Zimbabwe, but in Singapore.
His spokesperson denied reports he was suffering from prostate cancer, saying it was a routine cataract operation.
In an interview on state television, Mugabe claimed to be as "fit as a fiddle" but his slightly slurred and slow speech, and languid appearance fuelled further speculation about his health.
The state broadcaster did manage to venture a question on who might succeed him within his party, but he denied there was any need to even discuss such a possiblity.
