JOHANNESBURG- According to a report by News Day, Zimbabwe’s Vice President Kembo Mohadi is reportedly still hospitalised in South Africa following a bombing incident last month in Bulawayo where President Emmerson Mnangagwa was addressing a ruling Zanu-PF party rally.

The attack was believed to have targeted Mnangagwa but he was left unhurt.

The state owned newspaper Herald newspaper reported that Mohadi and Zanu-PF chairperson Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri were airlifted to South Africa for medical treatment after they were injured during the incident that left at least two dead.

News Day reported that Mohadi is still in South Africa, as he is undergoing physiotherapy and Muchinguri-Kashiri is back in Zimbabwe and was “recovering from home”.

The report quoted Vice President Constantino Chiwenga as saying, “We speak to him (Mohadi) on a daily basis. He is feeling much better and undergoing physiotherapy and we hope to see him soon assuming his official duties.”

The report also said that several Bulawayo youths had been picked up for questioning following the incident, but released without charge.
