President Robert Mugabe yesterday admitted that his busy travelling schedule was now taking its toll on him because he only slept two hours after arriving from Namibia before heading for Kutama Mission's centenary celebrations.

Mugabe who has been glob trotting almost weekly since December last year, is reportedly set to leave for Algeria on a State visit this week before flying to Ethiopia on African Union business.

The President's admission of fatigue came as speculation was rife last week that his ailing wife, First Lady Grace had also reportedly slipped out of the country to seek medical attention.

Yesterday the First Lady was also not at Kutama Centenary Celebrations in Zvimba, which Mugabe officiated.  

Mugabe's foreign trips have continued to increase against a backdrop of hardships spawned by his government's failed economic policies.
