Harare- Vice President Constantino Chiwenga is reported to have been flown back to China for yet another round of medical treatment.
The 63-year-old former military commander has been battling poor health since last year and spent more than three months in the Asian country.
He was last seen in public on June 25 attending the commissioning of a farm mechanisation scheme by John Deere at the Institute of Agricultural Engineering in Harare.
It was unclear as to what extent his health had deteriorated when a decision was made to take him to his Chinese doctors last week.
“Chiwenga is in China for treatment. He has missed at least two cabinet meetings,” a government source said Tuesday.
Chiwenga has been conspicuous by his absence in various Government and ruling Zanu PF meetings.
His travel to China comes at a time when health workers including nurses have embarked on a nationwide strike against poor salaries and working conditions leaving thousands of Zimbabweans unable to get medical treatment at public health centres.
