Below is an extract from Zimlive report.
HARARE – Vice President Constantino Chiwenga has been flown to China for treatment – just months after declaring that the government was banning health tourism, ZimLive can reveal.
The 64-year-old former army general has not been seen publicly for over a week.
Chiwenga, who is also the health minister, pre-recorded speeches delivered during virtual World Aids Day commemorations on December 1. On that day, he did not attend a cabinet meeting, and higher education minister Professor Aaron Murwira took questions as the acting health minister during a post-cabinet briefing.
A government source said: “He was very unwell at the end of November, and he cut back on his public appearances. A decision was taken to fly him out to seek treatment.”
