Ailing Zimbabwean Foreign Affairs Minister Sibusiso Moyo has reportedly been airlifted to South Africa for further treatment after spending two weeks admitted at the upmarket Avenues Clinic in Harare.
This comes after Vice President Constantino Chiwenga was also said to have vomited during a cabinet meeting this week.
Moyo, who turned a celebrity soldier when he appeared on national television November 15 to announce a coup against then President Robert Mugabe, failed to accompany President Emmerson Mnangagwa to the United Nations General Assembly in New York last week due to a kidney ailment.
Sources at the Avenues Clinic said that the retired Lieutenant General, who is reported to have been on dialysis for some time, underwent some surgery at the health institution before referral to South Africa.
Chiwenga was on Monday rushed to the same hospital for a yet undisclosed ailment and has had to answer questions on his health a number of times since masterminding the November coup.
Sources close to the embattled VP told NewZimbabwe that the former military boss vomited “uncontrollably” during a cabinet meeting Tuesday.
Images of Chiwenga and wife, Mary’s swollen hands have been trending on social media only a few months after the two were accused of using and reacting badly to skin lightening creams to which the former army General said he had a skin cancer type of disease which he also said had not been cured.
