Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe, is back home after a trip to Singapore that set off speculation that he was gravely ill. Mugabe was greeted at the airport by his Vice President, Joice Mujuru, who is considered a leading contender to take Mugabe's place when he leaves the presidency. Zimbabwean officials set their sights on western media for reporting on Mugabe's possible health scare.
"As you can see, he is fit as a fiddle. Why do we spread rumours? It's all lies told by a press driving an imperialist agenda," said Webster Shamu, the information and publicity minister.
