The MDC leader’s close circuit family has spoken to ZimEye.com claiming that it will be a miracle if he returns home.
“Things are no longer the same and unless a miracle occurs we have got to prepare for the worst,” a female relative told ZimEye yesterday.
” As I’m speaking he is in intensive care (unit); we decided as a family not to allow anyone else access to him, and even (Luke) Tamborinyoka is not allowed” she continued.
Tsvangirai is under the care of physician Dr Gunter K Schleicher who is working with a specialist anaethetist and another physician.
Another impeccable source told ZimEye Tsvangirai has in addition to his struggle with cancer of the colon, been affected by “a kidney tumor which has now grown over into the liver.”
The development comes as it is revealed in a leaked audio that the family has confiscated his passport in what has now caused the MDC leader to go on a hunger strike in protest against the way his wife is being treated by his relatives. For a while to date his wife Elizabeth has been blocked access to his South Africa hospital bedside by the family who have had bad relations with her for years to date. Yesterday President Emmerson Mnangagwa ended up dispatching armed policeman to guard his Highlands House amid property plunder attempts by the Tsvangirai family. It is believed that family members are unhappy with the fact that in the event of Tsvangirai’s departure, Elizabeth will be paid a state pension throughout her life according to benefits which the president has put in place. Those benefits however do not cover Tsvangirai’s extended family who have for survived on handouts from him.
” He has not been eating for over 10 days you can find out from the hospital, ” another source said.Post published in: Featured
