Terrence Mawawa| Ailing MDC leader, Morgan Tsvangirai will not return to Zimbabwe anytime soon, party security sources have disclosed.
Speaking to ZimEye.com from South Africa yesterday party officials in the security department ruled out Tsvangirai’ s early return.
The veteran opposition leader was flown to South Africa three weeks ago for emergency treatment after falling ill at a party meeting.
“What we can say is that Tsvangirai has been advised by his doctors to rest because they want to monitor his condition. I cannot say much but the truth is he will not return to Zimbabwe anytime soon,” said a security officer in the party.
Tsvangirai is expected to lead a coalition of opposition parties against President Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF in the 2018 elections.
Tsvangirai’ s state of health has caused cracks in the party structures with some officials indicating he must step down while others maintain he is the face of democracy.
The development comes as senior party member Eddie Cross faces disciplinary action over the same matter. There is also a cold war between supporters of party Vice President Nelson Chamisa and those of Acting President, Thokozani Khupe. The latter has not set foot into the party’s Harvest House offices for more than 2 months to date and is threatened with violence.
