Dr Magombeyi was abducted from his Budiriro home more than a week ago and spent five days in the hands of his captors. He was dumped in Nyabira, about 34 kilometres north-west of Harare.
There are suspicions that he could have been injected with an unknown substance, hence the need for further medical care in South Africa.
