UNWELL MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai is reportedly more concerned about more Zimbabweans turning up for next year's elections than his own deteriorating health.

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.

With speculation swirling over his health, Tsvangirai tried Saturday to put up a strong face, urging ordinary Zimbabweans to register to vote in their numbers during the just started Biometric voter registration process.

Panic has followed his chronic ailment with fears his demise was imminent and could plunge his party and that of the MDC Alliance he leads, into a leadership crisis.

But the veteran opposition leader, through his spokesperson Saturday sought to refocus the nation’s attention towards the current voter registration exercise.

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

“This morning, he (Tsvangirai) was assuring Zimbabweans he will be home soon; urging the nation to cooperate with the ongoing nationwide exercise to acquire birth certificates and national registration documents that will enable them to exercise their right to vote,” Tamborinyoka said.

“He urged Zimbabweans to turn out for voter registration in their multitudes so as to deal with the multiple cancers afflicting the nation that include corruption and a clueless leadership that is concentrating on succession battles at the expense of the plight of the ordinary people.

“In his usual light-hearted manner, President Tsvangirai said he was more worries about the country’s health, urging Zimbabweans to vote wisely next year so as to deal with the multi-layered afflictions of the country’s political economy.”
