UNWELL Morgan Tsvangirai was Thursday hurriedly airlifted on a life support system to South Africa.

MDC-T presidential spokespersn Luke Tamborinyoka confirmed in his twitter account.

The MDC-T leader was in Kadoma where he was attending an MDC Alliance strategic meeting when he suddenly started feeling unwell leading to him being taken to South Africa.

Reports said Tsvangirai started vomiting after lunch leading him to excuse himself and to him being taken back to Harare from where he was to be airlifted by a chartered jet on the recommendation of his doctor. 

He reportedly travelled with his wife and a private doctor. It was not clear from which private hospital he was airlifted and to which one in South Africa he was taken.

Last year, Tsvangirai disclosed that he was being treated for colon cancer. At the time, he routinely travelled to South Africa where he was successfully treated. 

On falling ill last year, Tsvangirai appointed both Elias Mudzuri and Nelson Chamisa as two additional vice presidents-joining Thokozani Khupe.

Since then, there have been many other developments in the party including the signing of an MDC-Alliance agreement which saw founder members who had left to form own parties coming back.

This has, however, not gone down well with Khupe and her other colleagues in Bulawayo who have boycotted the alliance's events. Khupe and colleagues argue that the party doesnt need coalitions in Matebeleland and there is no need to re-join hands with former secretary general Welshman Ncube.
