News of the South HARARE – Reports have gone round that Foreign Affairs Minister, Sibusiso B Moyo’s critical as he is now unable to speak.
Ministry of health officials said they are aware of Moyo’s kidney ailment related condition, and the minister is said to have lost weight and can now barely speak, due to rapid deterioration of his health.
“I cannot disclose fine details about the minister’s ailment, but it is true that he is unable to speak at the moment. He is however not in a comma as some have been speculating,” a doctor in the ministry said.
The minister has not attended to government business since September because of his dire health condition and has had to undergo undisclosed surgeries and a recent review in South Africa.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s spokeman, George Charamba, confirmed Moyo’s two medical operations at a local hospital, before flying out for a brief review in South Africa.
“I also want to correct the impression that was in the market that Lt General SB Moyo was in South Africa.
“In fact, he was treated at a local hospital and only travelled to South Africa for a review. It is understood that he had two operations meant to remove some growth in the stomach,” Charamba said.
There have been concerns in recent times over the effectiveness of government day to day operations, as senior figures especially in the presidium, including Mnangagwa have been receiving medical treatment at elite hospitals in South Africa.
VP Chiwenga and his counterpart Mohadi, have both visited South Africa for medical treatment this year. Chiwenga was in October airlifted to a Johannesburg hospital, where he received medical attention for a mysterious illness. Mohadi on the other hand has been in and out of South African hospitals since early this year, with rumors at one time that he had passed on refuted by Mnangagwa in May.
