President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Saturday revealed to the nation that Vice President Constantino Chiwenga is not feeling well.
Mnangagwa was speaking at a ‘Meet The People’ Rally in Mwenezi. He also revealed that the party’s national chairperson, Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri could not attend the rally as she had gone for a routine medical check-up following the injuries she sustained at last year’s Bulawayo terrorist attack at a ZANU PF rally. Said Mnangagwa:
As you can see, I have only Vice President Kembo Mohadi to assist me, the other Vice President, General Chiwenga, is not feeling well. So that is why he is not with us here. We thought it would be important to officially make this announcement because these are our senior Politburo members.
The national chairman (national chairperson Cde Muchinguri-Kashiri) is also not here. She had to receive her regular treatment for the injuries she suffered during the bomb explosion.
When the bombing incident happened in Bulawayo, Cde Chinomona and Vice President Cde Mohadi also got injured, but it’s good that we have them here.
There has been speculation concerning Chiwenga’s whereabouts as reports indicated that he was flown to India for medical attention, a week after he had been to South Africa for the same reason.
