Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari and Zimbabwe’s strongman, Robert Mugabe have both gone for medical treatment twice this year and Twitter followers have not failed to notice.
93-year-old Mugabe has gone to Singapore to treat an undisclosed illness while 74-year-old Buhari is in London also due to an undisclosed ailment.
Both have come under heavy criticism for seeking treatment abroad:
Buhari- London…. Mugabe – Singapore… Does that make every hospital in Africa below standard #Confused.
