Vice President Constantino Chiwenga has returned from China where he had gone for a routine medical checkup two weeks ago.
Chiwenga’s return was confirmed by George Charamba, the Press Secretary in the Office of the President. Said Charamba:
I haven’t seen him as yet, but I can confirm he’s back. You’d have heard that on Friday, the president appointed him chairman of the Covid-19 taskforce and that tells you he will hit the ground running.

The luxuriously-fitted Airbus A318-112 (CJ) Elite made a stop-over for refuelling in Colombo, Sri Lanka, after taking off from the Chinese capital, Beijing.
