Tsvangirai's spokesperson attacks Eddie Cross
Morgan Tsvangirai’s spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka has attacked MDC-T national executive member Eddie Cross for his comments over the weekend that Tsvangirai was in “excruciating pain.”
In response Tamborinyoka said the Bulawayo South legislator has neither mandate nor medical expertise to talk about Tsvangirai’s health. Said Tamborinyoka:
Honourable Eddie Cross has neither the mandate nor the medical expertise to purport to speak authoritatively and competently about president Tsvangirai’s health.
Those of us who have been in constant interaction with the president are worried stiff about the needless and unnecessary innuendos that are being thrown around concerning his health. There is absolutely no reason for anyone, let alone a senior member of the party citing nameless and ill-informed third parties, to trigger a national alarm not based on objective facts.
True, like all mortal beings, MT is winding up his health issues and is currently on a short break but he is well out of danger and will be back home soon. I have just spoken to him and he is in fine health. Yes, we are unrepentant democrats; but certainly, indiscipline does not constitute democracy.
