Interesting times ahead in Zanu PF as VP Chiwenga dramatically recovers. In a development that is set to exacerbate tensions within the ruling party, Zanu-Pf, ailing Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga, whose head was reportedly on the chopping block following revelations that his rivals were plotting to remove him from the succession matrix, is expected to return home after a dramatic recovery.
Zimbabwe Independent reports that the former Army General is expected back in Zimbabwe either at the end of the month or at the beginning of December after making a remarkable recovery at a top hospital in Beijing.
Speaking on the ailing vice president’s condition an official that spoke to the publication said that Chiwenga had not fully recovered but was in a stable condition to fly back home.
He is now in very good shape. Remember, when he was airlifted to China he was in a terrible state and was severely emancipated. He was weighing 55 kilogrammes and could not eat, but he is now weighing about 90kgs
We cannot say he is 100% fit because he is still receiving medical care in hospital. But the progress has been quite amazing.
When he went to China, he could not eat because his oesophagus was blocked, but now he is able to eat on his own. He can even eat meat now. His voice is also now sharp and loud, but when he went to China, his words were hardly audible.
If all goes well, he will be coming at the end of this month or at the beginning of December.
Chiwenga’s health has been off for the greater part of the year and was airlifted to China from South Africa earlier this year to undergo medical treatment amid fears that he was poisoned shortly after the November 2017 Military Coup.
News of Chiwenga’s impending return comes barely a month after reports that bigwigs within the ruling Zanu-PF party were plotting to oust the ailing vice-president from power to remove him from the succession matrix, based on his poor health and incapacitation to do his job. Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri had been named as a potential successor as Vice President.
