Tsvangirai out of danger, to reassure supporters via foreign radio

MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai who has been unwell for sometime now has defied his doctors’ advice to take a rest for a few more weeks before he fully recovers and is expected to address his party supporters via a foreign based radio station on Sunday.

Tsvangirai was supposed to address his party supporters at their 18th anniversary in Kwekwe on Saturday but the event was postponed and no reason was given.

The former premier is suffering from cancer of the colon and was rushed to South Africa last month after his health deteriorated.

His spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka said his boss, who was now out of danger, will address the nation via a radio station on Sunday

“The people’s President will also take the opportunity to reassure the nation about his health as well as pitching his message to all patriotic Zimbabweans ahead of the nationwide voter registration blitz which kicks off in earnest next Tuesday,” Tamborinyoka said. 

On his health problems that saw him being rushed to South Africa for treatment recently, Tamborinyoka said : “Yes, he is well, very much out of danger and, true to form, remains more worried about the parlous state of this country, which he so much loves.”

Tsvangirai was taken ill and flown to South Africa after allegedly inhaling dust when the air conditioning system of his vehicle went down while traveling from Gokwe last month.

His doctors had advised him to take a rest.
