Zimbabwe's Ailing Vice President Chiwenga to be Treated In China

Zimbabwe's Vice President Constantino Chiwenga has been moved from South Africa to China for further medical treatment. In a statement, government official George Charamba said Chiwenga will be treated by a consortium of Zimbabwean, South African, Indian and Chinese medical experts. This has fuelled a wave of speculation regarding Chiwenga's health and his undisclosed illness.
