ZimLive sources revealed that on his return from his second trip to India on June 9, Chiwenga ordered that a borehole be sunk as a matter of urgency at his Borrowdale mansion. Said the sources:
He has told those closest to him that he believes he was poisoned through water delivered to his home. He wanted a borehole sunk quite quickly. It was a herculean job, but they did find water at a depth of over 220 meters.
VP Chiwenga was on 18 June appointed the Acting President when President Emmerson Mnangagwa left the country for Mozambique.
However, the former army commander was not at the airport to see off the President. Even on President Mnangagwa’s return, the VP was also absent.
ZimLive was told that Chiwenga is in a critical condition and has become unrecognisable.
