VICE President John Nkomo has been admitted to a South African hospital with a “life threatening” cancer-related illness, reports said Thursday.

Nkomo, 76, collapsed at home in Harare last weekend before being airlifted to South Africa, the privately-owned The Mail newspaper reported.

Citing sources, the paper said Nkomo was “weak and unable to walk unaided” when he was admitted at the unnamed private clinic.

Regis Chikowore, a spokesman for the Vice President confirmed only that he regularly travels to South Africa for medical check-ups, but insisted he was not briefed on Nkomo's latest trip.

Nkomo was not in Parliament on Tuesday when Finance Minister Tendai Biti presented his mid-term budget review.

“At the clinic, his condition was considered to be life-threatening, and doctors advised him to stay in for observation,” The Mail said.

It has been reported that Nkomo was diagnosed with some type of cancer in 2008.
