By A Correspondent- Zimbabwe’s VP Constantino Chiwenga is reportedly flying to South Africa for medical treatment.
At the time of writing, he was attending a Zanu Pf politburo meeting.
A source close to the VP, however maintained that the country’s new Health minister is set to go for his routine medical checkup in the Southern African country today.
The development comes barely a week after he was quoted in the media saying government has stopped footing the medical bills of all senior government officials in order to maintain the national medical bill.
“We will not export our patients. We will not make referrals to our patients. It is everybody, ministers. Those who have been going out it is you and me. Is it not it? Altogether but that export bill was too high and that is what we want to do away with.”
At the time of writing ZimEye had engaged the government spokesperson for a comment, which was still expected at the time of printing. THIS IS A DEVELOPING STORY – REFRESH THIS PAGE FOR THE UPDATES
