Chiwenga’s Health, Follow Up On Reports Coming Out Thursday Morning
ZiMetro is making a follow up on Emmerson Mnangagwa’s deputy, Constantino Chiwenga after the Retired General collapsed several times since the beginning of the year.
ZiMetro can exclusively reveal that Mnangagwa this week alone visited Chiwenga’s house Monday and Tuesday, staying there for about 45 minutes per time.
Chiwenga has encountered several sudden episodes of collapsing while at work since the beginning of the year. On the 25th January, Chiwenga collapsed and was spotted coming out of a top private hospital in Borrowdale, Harare, amid reports of a health scare.
Chiwenga was seen being assisted by aides, who surrounded him as he got into a silver Mercedes Benz S class vehicle through the back door after spending hours at the facility.
“He suddenly collapsed while in office around 3pm and then taken for emergency checks” sources told ZiMetro.
Although an official at the private hospital claimed the VP was visiting a relative, another official alleged that Chiwenga had been taken ill earlier and later stabilised.
Chiwenga was later driven off the hospital premises in a motorcade whose other vehicles included a Black Mercedes Benz S class and a maroon Range Rover with South African number plates.
A military police double cab vehicle was also parked at the hospital although it was not part of Chiwenga’s motorcade.
Two months later on the 7th March 2018, Chiwenga rushed to hospital after suffering a dramatic fall at the Zanu PF headquarters — forcing him to cancel his politburo attendance.
The 61-year-old tripped and fell and badly hurt his hand just after arriving for the meeting.
He sustained a mild sprain.
“We were all worried when he slipped and hurt his hand but, as you saw, he is a fighter. He just had to be excused earlier to get his hand looked at,” said a staffer at the Shake Shake building.
The politburo continued with its discussions without Chiwenga.
In the latest developments Thursday morning, audios have floated online suggesting that something worse has happened to the general. ZiMetro several times attempted telephoning him, but his phone was unresponsive. Aside the suddenly frequent visits to his house by Mnangagwa this week, there was no announcement whatsoever at the time of publishing. – THIS IS A DEVELOPING STORY.
