Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe, has been flown to Singapore for urgent medical attention, reports say.
Vice President, Phelekezela Mphoko, is reported to have taken over as acting president.
State-owned Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation however said that Mugabe travelled to Singapore for official engagement.
The ZBC claim contradicts the government-owned Herald, which reported that the president travelled to Singapore for “routine medical check-up.”
He is expected back in Zimbabwe on May 13, reports say.
