Coup spokesman Sibusiso Moyo still too unwell for work

The Zimbabwe foreign affairs minister Retired Lieutenant General Sibusiso Moyo is still yet to return to work, nearly two months after he was rushed to an upmarket Harare hospital with an undisclosed health complaint.

Sibusiso Moyo He was a major general in the Zimbabwe National Army, before being promoted to lieutenant general on retirement in December 2017.

The coup spokesman’s unexplained illness has curiously coincided with vice president Constantino Chiwenga also being sidelined by poor health.

The Zimbabwe Home affairs minister Cain Mathema has stepped in as acting foreign affairs minister and took part in meetings with visiting Indian vice president Venkaiah Naidu in Harare Saturday.

Moyo was taken ill mid-September and admitted at the Avenues Clinic in Harare where reportedly underwent two operations.
He has not been seen in public since.

Last month presidential spokesman George Charamba dismissed media reports claiming that Moyo had been airlifted to South Africa for treatment.

“It is understood that he had two operations meant to remove some growth in the stomach.

“He was treated at a local hospital and only travelled to South Africa today for a review,” said Charamba at the time.
