Luke Tamborinyoka

President Tsvangirai is responding well to routine medical procedure in South Africa and he has laughed off gruesome press reports about his condition.

In a five minute conversation this morning, President Tsvangirai, who was accompanied by his wife for the routine medical process in South Africa, gave the assurance that he is responding well to treatment and urged Zimbabweans not to panic. He reiterated his message that Zimbabweans must concentrate on registering to vote in the next election.

President Tsvangirai said there was no need for national alarm about his condition, adding that several prophets of doom were keen on creating despondency by pouring cold water on the emerging convergence in the country on which Zimbabweans have pinned their hope.

He said like everyone else he was mortal but regretted that naysayers had begun a desperate campaign to feed on his temporary indisposition by spreading alarm and despondency in the nation.

He assured the nation he would be home soon to pursue the mammoth campaign to usher in a new dispensation next year.

President Tsvangirai stable, urges nation to register to vote

President Tsvangirai addressing a Press conference

President Morgan Tsvangirai, who flew to South Africa for a routine medical procedure, is in a very stable condition contrary to morbid media reports that he is critical and is battling for his life.

True to form, the people’s leader is more worried about the plight of Zimbabweans than his own condition. This morning, he was assuring Zimbabweans he will be home soon; urging the nation to co-operate with the on-going nationwide exercise to acquire birth certificates and national registration documents that will enable them to exercise their right to vote.

He urged Zimbabweans to turn out for voter registration in their multitudes so as to deal with the multiple cancers afflicting the nation that include corruption and a clueless leadership that is concentrating on succession battles at the expense of the plight of the ordinary people.

In his usual light-hearted manner, President Tsvangirai said he was more worried about the country’s health, urging Zimbabweans to vote wisely next year so as to deal with the multi-layered afflictions of the country’s political economy.

He urged the nation not to panic about his health, saying he will be home soon to play his part in canvassing for massive participation in next year’s watershed polls.
