Tsvangirai’s spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka said his boss has completed his medical procedure and will have to rest from his “hectic schedule of work that awaits him in Harare.”

“The people’s leader is now fully recuperated but will not be at work for some days to come as he fully recharges his batteries ahead of the mammoth responsibility of providing leadership in galvanizing the nation for the watershed polls next year,”Tamborinyoka said. 

He said in the meantime, the party’s three vice presidents that include Thokozani Khupe, Nelson Chamisa and Elias Mudzuri will  continue to execute their assigned tasks to ensure “consistent and uninterrupted leadership to the various party programmes currently taking place.”

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

The MDC Alliance leader who is set to face President Robert Mugabe in next year’s harmonised elections was last year diagonised with cancer of the colon.

He has a lot of work awaiting him when he comes back to office and this include addressing concerns raised by Khupe, national party chairman Lovemore Moyo and organising secretary Abednico Bhebhe who are against the coalition of opposition parties.
