Tsvangirai in ‘isolation’

MDC-T president Morgan Tsvangirai is holed up at his Highlands home, under strict instructions from doctors to stay away from public places to avoid catching new infections before he fully recovers.

Sources close to the former Prime Minister said Tsvangirai was only in contact with selected individuals, who include his spokesperson, Luke Tamborinyoka and members of his standing committee.

“He is at his Highlands home and has not been meeting with party members or people because he is under doctors’ instructions to avoid the public as he recovers. The president is at the moment fragile and prone to opportunistic infections,” the source said.

Tsvangirai is expected to leave for South Africa this weekend for further treatment before he resumes duties around Thursday next week.

Sources said the MDC-T leader, who has also been endorsed as the MDC Alliance presidential candidate, had turned the corner.

“The worst is past and he is responding well to medication. It is clear that the man still has energy to lead the alliance against Zanu PF’s 93-year-old candidate, who has ruined our economy over the past 37 years,” the source said.

Tamborinyoka confirmed that Tsvangirai was out of danger and would be back at work soon to lead the MDC-T and provide leadership.

“You saw the pictures, the president is alive and very much out of danger. He is resting and will be back to work soon. I can’t give you the specifics but he will be back soon,” he said.

Tamborinyoka said while a lot of work awaits his boss on his return, top on the list would be to galvanise the nation so that everyone registers to vote.

“He will come to provide leadership to this nation, which leadership is glaringly missing, to galvanise the nation for an electoral victory and finish the unfinished business started in 2013,” he said.

That’s how it started in ZANU PF now there is a dictator who says people loves him. It’s high time as a nation we get rid of these two sick men from the political scene. Unotonzwa munhu achiti we endorse Tsvangirai for 2018 as the presidential candidate wobva waona kuti iye haana problem asi vanomuisa ipapo. Regai Dr. J.T.R.

  3. Chiiko chekudini?I believe those who want Tsvangirai to step down are from Zanu pf or NPP and it only shows they feel threatened by the sick leader when it comes to elections.Better a sick man than recycled material.Get well soon SAVE.

    1. you have said the painful truth .those who are rejoicing in tsvangirai’s illness are zanupf supporters . chinoshamisa ndechekuti their leaders are even more sick and unsuitable for elections but they don’t talk about it. chinoshamisa pakurwara kwemunhu chii? ivo varikutaurisa vachafa vachimusiya arimupenyu tsvangirai. shame on them!!!!!Mira uone kubata kwaMWARI, TSVANGIRAI IS ZIMBABWE’S SAVIOUR EVERYONE KNOWS THAT AND HAASI KUZOFA KUSVIKA ASUNUNGURA ZIMBABWE KUBVA KU MA DICTATORS! IVO VANOSHUWIRA ZVAKAIPA NDIVO VACHAFA , AKANDA DOMBO RICHATEMA VANA VAKE, ACHERA GOMBA NDIYE ACHAWIRAMO

  4. Predator i-donkey kana kuti imboko Zimbabwe is full of energetic people with all the capability to do leadership to a much higher level.Ko vana Tsvangison vakakundikana kare muchavadiyi?

  5. Stop fooling the people Luke. Your boss is sick and should be substituted. He is no longer fit for purpose. He cannot handle the stress associated with political campaigns and meetings. Let the man chill as i do not see him alive this time next year if he carries on. Opportunistic infections!! Thats bad man. Morgan-quit. There is no shame in that as you have run your political race.

    1. SHAME ON YOU!!!!! is Mugabe fit for a purpose? have you told him to quit?poor tom…above all kurwara handi kufa, vangani vakafa vasina kurwara? Mugabe zvaanorwara akafa here? grace zvaanorwara akafa here? wakadii kuti vasiye politics? you know very well that tsvangirai will take over from your party that’s why you have a devil’s wish.iwe uchatofa uchimusiya arimupenyu uye achingovamo mupolitics macho,

  6. Comment…It’s not nice to scoff at your neighbours’ predicament especially illness.As Zimbabweans we mustn’t be known as heartless loose cannons who always pours scorn at each other’s misfortune we must endeavour to comfort even those whom we term,’our enemies’ in their trying times.

    As for the elections it’s all about choice.We go to the polls to choose the leader that we deem suitable to lead our nation, so if we see that some of the candidates are not suitable by either sickness,age or whatever we always have a lot to choose from.If an opposition party field an unsuitable so it’s an advantage to your party,so why do you cry?So we may disparage these politicions for their bad characters or their lack of leadership qualities but not their sickness.

    To all mdc supporters I salute you,to all zanu pf supporters I salute you,to all mthwakhazi supporters I salute you,to all zapu supporters I salute you and to all supporters of all the other political parties I salute you.It’s within your rights to choose a political party of your choice,respect each other’s rights and stop all those name calling and vulgar and learn to live together in peace. .

    Political leaders are mature, they don’t fight and kill each other that’s why president Tsvangirai is still alive and up to now living in a government apartment in Highlands.If you kill your neighbours the avenging spirits will not go to the political parties you support it will come to torment and destroy your families.

    Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

  7. Tsvangi the right candidate for 2018 mukusimba nemukurwara. The only man capable of bringing that “CHANGE” we admire. I know he is not selfish, once its a done deal next year, then it would be his time to pass the button stick but that also depends with his health.. Kana akasimba why not kumbopindawo panyanga just 5 years woenda hako gwara takariona kare pa inclusive gvt. Ndiyani aiziva kuti nevakomana ava incl Chamisa, vanhu vachafonerana kudzora mombe muri kumusha ??? MDC Alliance meant for the REAL CHANGE and the end of Mafikizolos in that ZANU PF forever
