JOHANNESBURG - Following reports that its president was battling for his life, Zimbabwe's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) says Morgan Tsvangirai is out of danger and is resting.
Newspapers in Zimbabwe yesterday reported that the 65 year old presidential hopeful had been urgently flown to South Africa on Friday night after his health condition deteriorated.
Tsvangirai had been addressing a party meeting in Kodama when he allegedly started experiencing severe vomiting, prompting his doctor to have him transported to South Africa.
The MDC says its leader has brushed aside his health scare to encourage Zimbabweans to register to vote in the coming elections.
This after widespread media reports that he was on life support fighting for his life.
The MDC's Austin Moyo says Tsvangirai has already spoken to party members assuring them of his wellness.
“He has called on Zimbabwenas to honour the call to register to vote on issues that face them.”
While the party says its leader is in a hospital for a routine medical procedure it couldn’t say when he would be discharged.
