CHIMANIMANI: Zimbabwe Deputy President Constantino Guvheya Chiwenga sparked fresh concerns about his health on Thursday after he was filmed fidgeting and struggling to maintain his focus while listening to survivors of Cyclone Idai.

Chiwenga, who spent over two weeks in an Indian hospital in February receiving treatment for what the government said was a “minor abdominal ailment”, travelled to Chimanimani and Chipinge districts with President Emmerson Mnangagwa and at least three former presidential candidates to assess the ongoing relief efforts.

During a visit to Chipinge District Hospital, Chiwenga was filmed struggling to maintain his focus as an elderly man narrated how he survived the cyclone.

The former army general, who led a coup that ousted former President Robert Mugabe in November 2017, kept on glancing sideways in-between nodding as if to indicate that he was following the survivor’s narration.
