Zimbabwe’s ousted President Robert Mugabe has been spotted in public for the first time since he was deposed in a military coup, the AFP news agency reports.
The 93-year-old leader was photographed as he left a hospital in Singapore.
The report says that Mr Mugabe walked quickly out of the building before he and his party of eight people were driven off in two cars.
His ex-spokesman, George Charamba, said on Thursday that Mr Mugabe was visiting Singapore for a routine medical check-up.
He added that the visit was “part of his package as a retired president to travel overseas”.
