Mugabe told his relatives during a visit to Gutu on May 13 that Grace would be back home early last week after taking care of his daughter Bona, who gave birth last month.
“Doctors said he [Bona’s son] can only fly after a month so they should be here this month around the 16th or 17th,” Mugabe told members of the Gutu clan, his maternal uncles.
Information ministry’s principal director Regis Chikowore refused to comment on Mugabe’s trip, referring questions to his spokesperson George Charamba. However, Charamba was not reachable on his mobile phone.
ZBC on its website said Mugabe had gone on a private visit. Mugabe has blown millions of dollars travelling around Africa and overseas this year.
On Friday he was in South Africa and spent a few hours back home before leaving for Singapore.
Singapore has been his favourite destination amid speculation that he is receiving medical treatment there.
