MDC-T top official Eddie Cross has revealed his own battles with prostate cancer as he tried to justify his recent comment that MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai’s colon cancer could render him unfit to continue at the helm of his party, NewZimbabwe.com reported.
Cross, 77, however, said he was also not ready to quit politics a decision he said was against his own family’s advice.
Cross touched a raw nerve a few days ago when he said that Tsvangirai’s deteriorating health could force him out of the 2018 elections.
Cross said he was he made the comments about Tsvangirai from his heart and not out of any attempt to brew mischief.
His party is at pains to present Tsvangirai as fit and ready to continue the pursuit of a job that has eluded him for nearly 15 years.
