Revealed: Robert Mugabe Succumbed to Cancer after Doctors Stopped Treatment




It has now emerged that former Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe was battling cancer and died after treatment was stopped.

Zimbabwe’s State-run Herald newspaper quoted his successor Emmerson Mnangagwa saying that the 95-year-old succumbed to cancer after his chemotherapy treatment was stopped.

President Mnangagwa indicated that Mugabe’s doctors stopped treatment due to his age and also because cancer had spread and it was not helping anymore.

“Treatment had stopped, doctors had stopped treatment, chemotherapy, one, because of age and also because cancer had spread and it was not helping anymore,” Mnangagwa told ruling party supporters in New York where he is attending this week’s United Nations General Assembly as quoted by Herald.

In 2011, WikiLeaks released US diplomatic cable that said Mugabe was suffering from prostate cancer that had spread to other organs, but Zimbabwe government officials denied.


Mugabe passed away on September 6th in Singapore, where he had been in the hospital for several months.

Mugabe ruled Zimbabwe for 37 years until he was ousted from power in a bloodless military coup in November 2017.

He will be laid to rest in a mausoleum still under construction at Heroes Acre – a hilltop shrine located in the outskirts of capital Harare.
