Former first lady critically ill.
Former first lady Janet Banana is said to be seriously ill and seeking medical treatment. Banana is the wife of the country’s first post-independence president Canaan Sodindo Banana. Banana was President of Zimbabwe from independence in 1980 until 1987.
According to reports, the 83-year-old Banana has been in and out of the hospital recently due to failing health.
Banana relinquished his post when the post of Prime Minister, which was held by Robert Mugabe, was abolished thus creating an executive President. He died in the United Kingdom in 2003 and was not accorded national hero status.
Daily News sources say Mrs Banana is suffering from renal disease, also known as chronic kidney disease. Bulawayo provincial minister confirmed to the Daily News that the government is taking care of Banana’s medical bills. Said Ncube:
She is not feeling well, that is the reason why the president had to call her so that she can be assisted.
It is her right to get government assistance.It is the government that is actually taking care of her bills. At the moment, we are frantically looking for a house for her that will be purchased by the government, because she is currently staying with her sister.
The government is working towards giving her, her pension. Two weeks ago, her pension had not yet reflected in her bank account. She is well taken care of. It’s just a question of time before everything gets into place.
