PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa sneaked out of the country late Sunday to neighbouring South Africa with government sources indicating he had gone for “medical checks”

Information minister Simon Khaya Moyo was not available for comment. Efforts to get comment from Mnangagwa’s spokesperson George Charamba also drew blanks.

However New Zimbabwe has it on good authority that Mnangagwa had travelled for what has become regular checks since the controversial poison saga last year.

“He will go to South Africa on Sunday and is back in the country on Monday for medical check-ups. After the poisoning last year, his doctors advised he should continue to be checked regularly until he is in the clear. It’s not that he is in any danger but they want to continue checking for traces of the poison,” said a high level source.
