The late Morgan Tsvangirai’s sister Miriro Tsvangirai (47) died at home on Friday after being discharged from Parirenyatwa Hospital due to the strike by nurses. Her brother Manasa told The Standard,
She was asthmatic and had heart complications. She was admitted at Parirenyatwa Hospital and we took her home when the government asked people to withdraw their relatives from hospitals following the strike by health workers. Her situation deteriorated after we withdrew her from hospital leading to her death at home yesterday [Friday] at night.
The nurses have since said that they are calling off the strike after Vice President Constantino Chiwenga fired them for going on strike.
