In an interview with The Herald, President Mnangagwa’s spokesperson George Charamba explained a picture of the President holding a packet of tablets that went viral on social media.
He said Mnangagwa had a bad cold over the past few days that saw him taking medication, but he is now fit. Said Charamba:
He had a bad cold that saw him dropping off the burial of General Valerio Sibanda’s mother, Gogo Yowana Kubvoruno, where he was then represented by his deputy, General Constantino Chiwenga (Retired). There is nothing to picture home about. The Meteorological Services Department has been giving us periodic updates about the chilling weather conditions. Even the President lives under the same weather just like you and me – they are also susceptible to cold. The President is back in form and that is why he is back on his campaign trail.
