Zimbabwe Vice President Rtd Gen Chiwenga has been airlifted to China this evening as his condition deteriorated.
The news which was coming from the Children of Zimbabwe War Veterans Association Twitter platform revealed that he was airlifted to China after his health condition got worse.
Constantino Guveya Dominic Nyikadzino Chiwenga has been the vice president since the inception of the government, he is a Zimbabwean politician and former army general currently serving.
Speaking on Saturday was the the Health Minister Monday, telling the media that the state had stopped footing the medical bills of all senior government officials in order to maintain the national medical bill.
He also promised to improve conditions of service for public health workers who have been on strike demanding better salaries and working conditions.
“We will not export our patients. We will not make referrals to our patients. It is everybody, ministers. Those who have been going out it is you and me. Is it not it? Altogether but that export bill was too high and that is what we want to do away with,” he said.
“Zimbabwe has a national medical bill that is high. It is, therefore, imperative that the country develops a method of containing the import bill through health care innovations for import substitution.
“This entails inverting the import bill burden into export receipts either in part or most importantly in the whole. This will improve the funding of the national health care system.
“We will have hospitals that will specialise in different treatment services across the country. We are restructuring from the village health worker right up to the top hospital.”
Senior government officials including Mnangagwa and his two vice-presidents, Chiwenga and Kembo Mohadi are well-known for travelling outside the country to receive treatment following years of neglect of the Zimbabwe public system.
