Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe was reacting to reports on various sections of social media (not on Somtoo.com) about his death when the 92-year-old returned to his country from the United Arab Emirates on 3 September 2016.
Said Mugabe who spoke to journalists at Harare International airport after arriving from Dubai on Saturday:
“Yes, I was dead, it’s true I was dead. I resurrected as I always do. Once I get back to my country I am real.”
On a more serious note, the democratically-elected leader who has been ruling Zimbabwe since December 31, 1987 added:
“I had gone on a family matter to Dubai concerning one of my children.”
