Zimbabwe’s Vice President Constantino Chiwenga is being treated in a South African hospital for the effects of a bomb blast targeting Zanu-PF leaders in June, a state newspaper is reporting.
The paper quoted that Chiwenga had “soldiered on” in the wake of the grenade attack on President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s rally in Bulawayo. Chiwenga was not previously reported to have been injured in the blast, which killed two security aides and injured dozens of others, including Chiwenga’s wife Mary.
ZBC at the time showed him in apparent good health, visiting the injured in a hospital in Bulawayo alongside Mnangagwa.
Chiwenga fell sick before the cabinet meeting
Presidential spokesman Charamba said Mary Chiwenga was also receiving treatment in South Africa, but he denied social media reports in Zimbabwe that Chiwenga was in bad shape.
“The review has been done both for the general and his wife. The President has constantly been talking to the couple on a daily basis,” Charamba told the Herald.
He added that Chiwenga had “historical” health problems relating to a bullet wound he received during the country’s independence war. He said the couple would return to Zimbabwe this week.
