In a statement, MDC-T President Morgan Tsvangirai’s spokesperson Luke Tomborinyoka said the opposition party leader left Zimbabwe for a routine medical check up in South Africa soon after President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s visit.
The President came just as Mr Tsvangirai was about to leave the country for his routine medical check-up. We thank him for his gesture to come and pay a visit to the former Prime Minister of the country.
In the 45-minute closed-door meeting, President Mnangagwa was accompanied by his deputy Vice President Retired General Constantino Chiwenga. The two leaders discussed the current dire situation in the country, the plight of the people and the cash crisis afflicting the country.
They also discussed the urgency of free and fair elections to ensure a return to legitimacy as well as the need to engage the international community so that the country rejoins the family of nations.
Elias Mudzuri will be the acting president of the party.
