Zimbabwe on Tuesday dismissed reports that President Robert Mugabe was battling for life in a Singapore hospital as "a lot of hogwash", after his absence forced cabinet to postpone this week's meeting.
"It's a lot of hogwash," Information Minister Webster Shamu told AFP. "This is not the first time we have heard these rumours. If anything like that had happened, we would have issued a statement."
He would not disclose the whereabouts of Mugabe, 88, who was reported by state media to have left for Singapore on a private visit more than a week ago to arrange post-graduate studies for his daughter Bona.

I’m pulling for VERY POOR HEALTH and death soon — very soon.
