Grace Mugabe, the wife of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, has reportedly flown to Dubai for urgent medical treatment.

Speculation became rife last week week over the First Lady's whereabouts after Acting President Phekezela Mphoko stand in for her when he received about $1.5 million worth of clothes and food stuffs from a South African based non-governmental organisation, Givers Foundation at State House, Zimbabwean news agency Harare24 reported.

Some false reports emerged at the weekend claiming Mrs Mugabe had died, but this was dismissed by government sources.

“There is no truth to that. Where did you hear it? She is well and fit,” a top member of the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU–PF) was reported as saying.
