The ZBC reported that the 93 year-old leader arrived in Port Louis, Mauritius to join other heads of state and government, captains of industry and intellectuals for the inaugural African Economic Platform (AEP).

“President Mugabe was warmly welcomed at Ramgulan International Airport by the Prime Minister of Mauritius, Mr Provin Jugnauth, several ministers from the government of Mauritius, and representatives from the African Union (AU),” ZBC said.

“As he disembarked from his plane, President Mugabe inspected a guard honour mounted to honour and acknowledge his presence, before proceeding into a VVIP lounge where the two leaders had a brief conversation.”

The AEP Summit, which kicks off this Monday will be focusing on economic transformation and integration on the continent.

Mugabe is fresh from an expensive trip to Singapore earlier this month which saw him use state resources to charter a $1 million dollar plane for a medical review in the Asian country.

He returned to spend less than 24 hours in the country only to fly out again to Ghana to attend that country’s 60th Independence Day celebrations.

Only this weekend, he was in Swaziland for a SADC summit on industrialisation.

The Zimbabwean strongman returned home and flew out again to Mauritius.

Presidential spokesperson George Charamba, who is part of Mugabe’s entourage, has defended the veteran leader’s endless travels saying “diplomacy did not come cheap”.

    The problem is not with him but with those who cash in by way of hefty allowances they give themselves for organising and accompanying the old man. They want to amass as much wealth as possible from the Zim taxpayer while the old man is still alive. They are literally holding him to ransom.
