President Emmerson Mnangagwa yesterday visited VP Chiwenga and his wife Mary at their residence following their return from South Africa, where they were receiving treatment.
George Charamba said Health and Child Care Deputy Minister Dr John Mangwiro who had accompanied the VP Chiwenga and his wife to South Africa briefed the President that the V P needed time to rest before he resumed the demanding duties of his office.
“Dr Mangwiro told the President in very clear terms that the Vice President must be given sufficient time to rest and that he must keep away from the office for a while.”
Vice President yesterday again sent a message on twitter appreciating messages from everyone for his recovery,
It is not any easy road for the President as his two deputies are not feeling well looking at the demanding duties of their office as VP Mohadi is said to also frequently travel to South Africa for treatment.
In April this year Mohadi failed to attend the Independence day celebrations at the National sports stadium in Harare.He also failed to appear before the Mines and Energy Committee which he had been scheduled to give oral evidence before the Mines and Energy Portfolio Committee, after travelling to South Africa for an undisclosed ailment.Again in July he was undergoing physiotherapy in South Africa following injuries he sustained from a “bomb” explosion at the White City Stadium after President Emmerson Mnangagwa had addressed a Zanu Pf rally.
