VP Chiwenga fit and at work


Harare (New Ziana) – Vice President Constantino Chiwenga is fit and is at work, contrary to reports that he had been admitted to a local hospital on Thursday for an operation.

Western funded online publication, ZimLive which is run by disgruntled former Zimpapers staffer Mduduzi Mathuthu, cited unnamed sources which claimed that the VP was due “to undergo a medical procedure to correct a discomfort in his stomach.”

But, embarrassingly for ZimLive, it turns out the VP had visited the Trauma Centre as part of his duties as Health and Child Care Minister.

“They forget I am the Minister of Health. I had gone to see new ideas, new equipment. My brother (Dr Vivek Solanki) wants to do open heart surgery,” VP Chiwenga said in a video posted on Friday, a day after he had supposedly gone under the knife.

The video was recorded by deputy chief secretary to the office of the President and Cabinet George Charamba.

“What is wrong with the people? So I should never visit a friend who has got a surgery, a clinic or a hospital? Now how do I visit my hospitals?”

Charamba said the VP was very well and was scoffing at the malicious reports.

“I snapped VP Chiwenga in his Munhumutapa Office barely half an hour ago. He is at work and scoffing at claims that he is unwell. Yesterday he visited a health facility in Borrowdale to see installation of new equipment on open heart surgery. Zimbabweans continue to have more options should they require such specialised attention which historically has taken them to either South Africa or India.”
