Tamborinyoka was involved in a near-fatal car accident on Sunday and sustained multiple injuries after his vehicle burst a rear tyre and rolled thrice as he travelled to his rural home in Domboshava.
Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Jameson Timba said: “His condition is improving. He is conscious, but can’t speak because of the gadgets around his face. He is responding to stimuli which means he can smile and recognise people.” MDC-T organising secretary Nelson Chamisa also said: “As the MDC family we are doing the best together with the doctors and the relatives, but certainly God will do the rest.”
Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe Union of Journalists (ZUJ) said they were praying for the speedy recovery of the former ZUJ secretary-general and Daily News News Editor.
“ZUJ would like to join the Tamborinyoka family, government of Zimbabwe and the nation in wishing the Prime Minister’s spokesperson and former ZUJ secretary-general (Luke) Tamborinyoka a speedy recovery,” ZUJ secretary-general Foster Dongozi said.
