Gwanda – Deputy president, Emmerson Mnangagwa has reportedly been rushed to hospital after suffering from an unknown ailment.
Mnangagwa was attending the ruling party Zanu-PF youth rally in Gwanda, Matabeleland South province which was addressed by party leader President Robert Mugabe.
Midway into Mugabe’s long winding speech bereft of the country’s economic crisis, Mnangagwa was seen being helped into a waiting ambulance before being airlifted to Gweru. State security minister, Kembo Mohadi accompanied him. There are fears that he might have been poisoned or eaten contaminated food.
Mnangagwa is seen as Mugabe’s heir apparent, but the 93 year- old leader’s wife, Grace is leading a Zanu-PF faction at odds with him taking over.
