VP Chiwenga has revealed that a disease of the esophagus nearly killed him. He spent four months in a hospital in China.
He said his recovery was nothing short of a miracle. “The sickness is called idiopathic oesophageal stricture. It means that you cannot take in food and also you cannot even vomit. It involves blocking of the esophagus and I spent a lot of time in the intensive care unit.
“I was telling colleagues that I spent close to six months without seeing the sun. I only saw it this last Saturday upon returning home.
“I want to thank you all for your prayers. Those prayers made me to survive. Since I started falling sick in October last year, there were not many who thought I would heal completely. There were not many who thought I would be standing before you like this.
He was speaking at a homecoming Roman Catholic Church mass held for him at his rural home in Wedza.
