Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai is still in South Africa and is due to undergo a medical review this weekend pending his return.

Tsvangirai’s spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka said he has been discharged from hospital after being airlifted from Harare three weeks ago following severe vomiting.

Tsvangirai has been receiving treatment for colon cancer in the neighbouring country since last year.

He had appeared to improve but now faces the final medical review before coming back home to steer the MDC ship.

Tamborinyoka confirmed that the former prime minister -— who is currently on leave — was fine.

“The president will be back in the country soon and the president is very alive,” Tamborinyoka said.

This comes after media reports claimed that Tsvangirai was back at his Highlands home but was in “isolation” under strict instructions from doctors to stay away from public places to avoid catching new infections before he fully recovers.

“He is waiting for his review; he is still in South Africa. The rumour claiming that he is back is false. But he is now out of danger. He will be back in the country next week,” an authoritative top MDC source said.
