Tsvangirai Appoints Nelson Chamisa As Acting MDC-T President Until His Return

Zimbabwe opposition leader critically ill in S/African hospital – Report

He is now receiving treatment at the Wits Donald Gordon Medical Centre (WDGMC) in Johannesburg where doctors are doing their best to fight the cancer, which has reportedly metastasized.

The opposition in Zimbabwe for Democratic Change (MDC) party is led by Morgan Tsvangirai.

Tsvangirai's Twitter feed contested the report, saying the former union leader who emerged two decades ago as Mugabe's principal political challenger was "shocked" to read of his deteriorating condition.

His supporters should "brace for the worst", a source told Reuters news agency. In his latest communique he has dismissed rumours that he was in a critical condition and instead said he was recovering. Of course I have cancer and not feeling too well but I am stable and the process is under control.

The 65 year-old has been in and out of hospital and returned to South Africa in early January for medical care.

Internecine feuding over Tsvangirai's success is threatening to tear the party apart ahead of crucial general elections in which new president Emmerson Mnangagwa has vowed a clean sweep.

He shared power for a few uncomfortable years with former President Robert Mugabe, who resigned in November under pressure from the military and ruling party.

But according to a statement from MDC-T director of communications, Luke Tamborinyoka, Chamisa was also made party acting president because Mudzuri is apparently in South Africa along with the other deputy Thokozani Khule.
