Tsvangirai had been addressing a party meeting in Kodama when he allegedly started experiencing severe vomiting, prompting his doctor to have him transported to South Africa. "He is being attended to", a senior official from Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.

This was said by spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka after the ex-prime minister was Thursday airlifted to South Africa for treatment of a colon cancer ailment. "He will be fine, it's only that he was overwhelmed with work and his health deteriorated".

Other sources within the MDC had told the news agency Reuters the sudden illness was not related to Tsivangirai's treatment for colon cancer that started past year. Tamborinyoka did not state when Tsvangirai was admitted in hospital but media reports said he was admitted Friday.

According to Tamborinyoka, Tsvangirai was more anxious about the plight of suffering Zimbabweans that his own health.

He also added, "Americans shouldn't worry, especially since promoting savings and investment is a top priority in this exercise". Trump so far, it's that he's much more interested in being able to claim victory than he is about the details of policy.

Tsvangirai shared power with Mugabe between 2009 and 2013 before losing disputed elections.

The former trade union leader has often accused Mugabe and his government of rigging polls.

Pindai Dube said, "It will affect the political parties negotiations, as you know Morgan Tsvangirai has been leading the MDC for about 17 years and he was chosen by these political parties to lead the alliance". He had won the largest share of the vote during the first round of the 2008 presidential election, but rescinded his nomination before the final voting round after violent attacks against MDC supporters.
