Zimbabwean Vice President Constantino Chiwenga is being treated in India for a ‘minor ailment’, a government deputy minister has said, days after a local news website reported that the retired general had gone to that country due to failing health.
Chiwenga has reportedly undergone surgery for an abdominal complaint in India. Deputy Information Minister Energy Mutodi used his Twitter page to make the announcement Sunday.
“Hon Vice President CDN Chiwenga is recovering well from some minor abdominal ailment in Delhi India,” said Mutodi who, reports claim, has been gagged from speaking on behalf of the presidium.
Chiwenga was airlifted to India late last Thursday for the second time inside a week after another health scare.
