Presidential spokesperson George Charamba has dismissed as fake allegations that Vice-presidents Kembo Mohadi and General Chiwenga have been hit by Covid-19.

Posting on twitter, George said Mohadi took his annual leave soon after his term as Acting President ended and he is very much around.

He added that Chiwenga is on his traditional annual leave which this year has proved more of technical fixture than a real break

He said this comes after Mnangagwa ordered him to take some rest as he was in bad state few days ago.

“A few days ago, he looked worse for wear and the President ORDERED him to take some DESERVED REST.He would have wanted to be with the President at yesterday’s sorrowful burial event, in fact insisted to do so”

He added that Chiwenga will resume work shortly and “we all hope headlines of humble retractions…follow, hopefully with the same loud prominence!!!”.
