Tsvangirai’s health deteriorates

MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai is reportedly battling for his life in South Africa, where he is receiving treatment, as his condition continues to deteriorate amid reports that his doctors have indicated the former Prime Minister has lost hope.

Close family members confirmed the development yesterday, saying his medical team had summoned his close relatives to South Africa to update them on his latest condition.

Other sources, who have been in contact with Tsvangirai and his family, said while the former Premier was alive and responding to treatment, his health continued to deteriorate.

“The president is alive, but his health has deteriorated from the time he left the country.

“He is not feeling well and everyone is worried about his health.

“I saw social media messages saying he is dead, that is not correct, he is still alive,” the source said.

Tsvangirai’s family is reported to be in South Africa after doctors reportedly sent an alert to them over his health.

Doctors have also reportedly stopped Tsvangirai from being moved to Germany, where his wife, Elizabeth, wanted him to meet an unnamed Zimbabwean prophet and attend two chemotherapy sessions.

“In a final bid to turn his health fortunes, Tsvangirai is set to fly out of South Africa anytime soon for healing in Germany, where he is reportedly set to meet a prophet.

“Elizabeth has since organised and received visas for the three-day trip for an undisclosed party delegation travelling with Tsvangirai to Germany and they have been granted their visas.


“The prophet in question is said to have prophesied that Tsvangirai is going to win the 2018 polls, beating Mnangagwa in a shock outcome,” the source said.

A source in South Africa, said Tsvangirai was under close monitoring from his medical team and was not likely to be politically active.

This has left the MDC-T in limbo over its electoral candidate, less than five months from the general election.

A party member said he had spoken to the family yesterday morning and was told Tsvangirai was admitted in hospital.

“He is in hospital and he was supposed to have a teleconference with the party leadership today (yesterday).

“I am not sure if it went ahead, but that was the plan. Obviously people can’t keep calling and checking if he is still alive,” the source said.

The teleconference never happened, according to sources, who said the former Premier was in serious pain and unable to talk after a chemo session, which was both draining and painful.

Acting MDC-T president Elias Mudzuri refused to get into the details of Tsvangirai’s health, saying it was social media rumours, which he described as false.

Tsvangirai’s spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka was not available for comment, as his number was unreachable.

The former Premier, who has contested against former President Robert Mugabe in three presidential elections, has been in and out of hospital since he announced he was battling cancer of the colon almost two years ago.

He last appeared in public at the inauguration of President Emmerson Mnangagwa last November and has not been running the party since then.

  16. Comment…God of mercy we need your intervention.let him be free from cancer.we stl need him God hear our prayers we kneel down before you for you are specialist of impossibility

  17. Get well soon Sir! This is an unfortunate turn of events for the opposition wing. No wonder we keep advocating for politics that will outlive us. Its evident that things have literally stalled in MDC-T (and the Alliance for that matter) since Tsvangirai left out of trivial selfish interests. Its too late to start fighting over succession issues months to the polling day in full glare of recuperating Tsvangirai, a man who has highly invested his time and resources to keep it intact and operational for almost two decades. As we pray for his quick recovery, let us try to fulfill his long endured vision.

  18. Heavenly father, we thank you for the finished work of the cross through Christ Jesus and ask total healing and strength upon his body and we thank you that by your stripes we have been made whole !

  19. GET WELL SOON save

  20. Get well soon unrivalled democratic icon. No-one will ever take away from you your shiny democratic epaulettes. However, in the interest of continuity and in light of the soon to be held watershed election, don’t you think it is high time you step down and allow for a speedy succession? You are the indisputable resin that has been holding the party together but things seem to be falling apart Sir. In contrast, the ZANU PF electoral bulldozer is fully oiled and ready to smash a landslide. May the Lord heal you Sir, my prayers are with you!

  21. Be hld in Jesus name Amen

  22. GOD BLESS YOU MR PRESIDENT

    1. I thik Sharon you left the word MuDhoSvo before president or should I say Dokuta as others prefer.

  25. Colleagues who all posted here you made me shade tears, your prayers are too powerful for this man who have done all he can do to extricate us from the jaws of Zanu. I am certainly my voice to the throne of Grace that may the God of Mercy intervene in our favour and heal him for our sake your chn Oh God. We stand in your promise Our faithful God that you are our healer(Psalms 103:3. In the Name of Jesus Christ we have surrendered him in your own Hands.

  26. Get well soon Morgan Chamatutum Tsvangirai! Mwari poresai Morgan atitungamiririre kubva muhuranda weZANU PF. Zimbabwe ibudirire

  27. A pity Morgan is not getting better. He must step down or Mdc must recall him. This is the sad truth that Mdc is really no different from Zanu especially while it was under Bob. Face the facts-the man is dying and there is nothing that can done. Choose a new leader NOW.This is the time to cleanly defeat Zanu or you can kiss ruling this country goodbye. Only an idiot party can have a man who is terminally ill as its candidate and hope to win!

    1. This so called Tom must die this week

    2. GOD PLEASE TAKE AWAY TOM NOW

  28. Get well Save, the only president to have won an election after 2000 in Zim, you are a hero!

    1. Anonimus you are quit ignorant that there was no 50% for any of the candidates as required in the dictates of the law of Zim. Tom is just repeating what the doctors said that maximum of 3 months left, thus even before elections you stereo-type idiotic hider of your real name

  29. Mutinzwire ngoni mwari waAraham,mwari waIsaac mwari waYakope,mutinzwire ngoni. Tsvangirai must be healed and get well very soon by the grace of god.

  30. Tsvangison is a true hero may the lord peacefully take him to rest

  31. Get well soon Save,soldier on Cde. We are with you all the way our hero.You are healed by the grace of God.

  32. Get well soon Save by God’s grace.

  33. i am so happy that Zimbabwe has so many people GOD can heal cancer at this stage. I just believe GOD can do it for just reward this country which has trusted in him through thick and thin. I believe in miracles and God still wants to show them for the world through Zimbabwe. This is encouraging.

  34. Save you are in our hearts. Tsvangirai the real President of Zimbabwe. Pasi nevavengi.

  35. Mr Prophet come to SA to heal him

  36. Tsvangirai was a great leader who fought for democracy, a champion of peace, provoked by the junta several times but kept his cool. l respect and honour you Sir, get well soon, your fight was a good fight. But the party you grow is facing an implosion due to greedy, instead of consolidating what you built Sir they have already started distroying it.

  37. YOU ARE OUR HERO MORGAN.GET WELL SOON IN JESUS NAME.

  38. Nhai mwari tigodiiko.poresai munhu uyu.ndiyo hope yedu

  39. WE PRAY FOR RECOVERY

  40. Comment…please save my homee by seeing tb joshua in Nigeria pliz

  44. VaTsvangirai poreswai muzita ramambo Jesu wakatifira Jesu wachaita kuda kwavo nekuti zvose zviri mumaoko aIshe Jesu porai muzita rake.Amen

  45. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
