Zimbabwe Vice President Constantino Guveya Chiwenga.

HARARE – Zimbabwean Vice President Constantino Chiwenga is being treated in India for a minor, a government deputy minister has said, days after a local news reported that the retired general had gone to that country due to failing health.

The health of Chiwenga (62) is closely followed in Zimbabwe by Emmerson Mnangagwa and the front-runner to succeed him. He led the blow that long-time ruler Robert Mugabe in 2017.

A gaunt-looking Chiwenga was last seen in public last Tuesday, when he was told about his condition. Since last year, Chiwenga's hands have been visibly swollen with discolored skin patches.

Information deputy minister Energy Mutodi said on Twitter Chiwenga "is recovering well from some minor abdominal ailment in Delhi, India." He declined to make further comment.

His tweet was ridiculed by citizens in a country where public health officials sought to help patients.

ZimLive.com, an online news agency, reported last Thursday that Chiwenga had been flown to India.

Chiwenga had traveled to Cape Town, South Africa, for treatment, his second visit in four months.

Mnangagwa has dismissed rumors of a rift with Chiwenga. These gather momentum after Mnangagawa promised action in response to a brutal security crackdown. Chiwenga was acting president at that time.
