Sources who spoke to ZimLive said Zimbabwe’s Vice President Constantino Chiwenga is having trouble swallowing.

 

ZimLive broke the story that Chiwenga was in India a fact which was confirmed by Deputy Information Minister Energy Mutodi. A medical source who spoke to the online publication said when Chiwenga visited a hospital in South Africa he complained that his esophagus was “dry”. He told doctors he was struggling to eat. Chiwenga reportedly underwent esophageal manometry, used to measure the strength and muscle coordination of one’s esophagus when they swallow.

A medical source who spoke to ZimLive said the tests detected that Chiwenga was having motility problems which are not cancerous. He was advised to see an esophageal surgeon.
