Tsvangirai speaks on his health

On the 8th of May 2016, my Zimbabwean doctors referred me to South Africa where a further diagnosis revealed that I am suffering from cancer of the colon. Following the diagnosis last month, I underwent an operation last month that was very successful.

However, a diagnosis of cancer is the first of several medical procedures that include treatment through chemotherapy, which treatment I began this week. As a leader and a public figure, I have taken a decision to make public my condition. It is my firm belief that the health of national leaders, including politicians, should not be a subject of national speculation and uncertainty.

I want to thank my wife Elizabeth for her love and caring, my family, MDC members and the broader Zimbabwean society for their prayers and support on this journey.

This health condition is unfortunate but can be faced by anyone. I intend to confront this development with the determination to overcome it. In the meantime, let us remain focused in confronting the national crisis we face.

God bless you all.

      I agree with you .
      Unfortunately he does not mention anything about relingishing political power and concerntrate on his recovery .
      He is the other side of the coin sekuru)- he will take the party presidency to his grave .
      Leadership mindset renewal is required for us as country tp propser .
      Charity begins at home —–from party structures to elected government

    Just another politician who goes “overseas’ for a medical condition. I thought Morgan would do the right thing and go to a local hospital and specialist. They are all cut from the same cloth.

      Homo, have you read the article and understood it? The local docs you refer to actually referred Morgiza to SA docs!
