JUST IN: VP Chiwenga leaves South Africa for medical tests in ChinaVP Chiwenga

Elita Chikwati, Senior Reporter
Vice President Constantino Chiwenga has left South Africa for China for further medical tests.
This follows the decision by Zimbabwe and China to allow Chinese experts to join fellow experts in Zimbabwe, South Africa and India in attending to the Vice President.

VP Chiwenga has been recovering in South Africa with President Mnangagwa last week confirming that the Vice President’s health was improving.

Last week, President Mnangagwa said VP Chiwenga was now able to do physical exercises on his own, an indication that he was on the road to recovery.

In a statement on Monday, Presidential Spokesman, Cde George Charamba confirmed the latest developments.

“Following last week’s Presidential statement on Vice President CGDN Chiwenga’s health and recovery status, the Office of the President and Cabinet wishes to inform the nation that the Vice President this week left for the People’s Republic of China where he is set to undergo further medical tests.

“His relocation to China, which builds on the satisfactory recovery progress he has been making, follows weekend discussions at the highest level between Governments of Zimbabwe and China at which a decision was taken to allow Chinese medical experts to join their counterparts from Zimbabwe, South Africa and India in attending to the Vice President.

“The Office will keep the nation updated on the progress the Vice President continues to make towards full recovery,” said Cde Charamba.

President Mnangagwa’s clarification is set to pour cold water on some sections of the media who have been publishing speculative stories on VP Chiwenga’s health.

    Speculative stories can be likened to smoke seen from a distance thus indicating fire burning.

    I doubt the nation gives a toss about VP Chiwenga, other than he is yet another drain on the nations finances.

    Why does he not use the “world class” state medical facilities in his own country…..

    Maybe because they are non-existent. Probably the best medical system in Africa, if not the Southern Hemisphere at independence, and now…… the laughing stock of the medical fraternity (world wide).

    What a shame such a beautiful country was ruined by a bunch of PRI*KS!!!!!

    It must be a big relief and a comfort when you have a slow puncture and you can gallivant for free all over the world looking for a patch or a new inner tube.

    And especially when penniless people that you despise pay for your jaunts.
