What Buhari and Mugabe have in common – BBC

According to a report by BBC Africa, the president of Nigeria, Angola, Zimbabwe, Benin and Algeria all have something in common; an apparent lack of faith in the health systems at home.

In terms of time spent abroad getting medical help, Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, 74, is the first among equals, but in the past years, all these heads of state have travelled overseas for health reasons. In many cases they are leaving behind poorly funded health services, which most of their citizens have to rely on.

The report continues to say, Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe, in power since 1980, has also been criticised by his political opponents for running the country “from his hospital bed” after his third medical trip to Singapore this year. ‘As for Nigeria, the public health system is “terrible” because of poor funding’.
