JOHANNESBURG - Zimbabwean main opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai is responding well after a routine medical procedure in South Africa, the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) said in a statement on Monday.

It was reported at the weekend that he was on life support after being airlifted to a South African hospital.

The MDC laughed off "gruesome reports" about his condition after reports emerged on Sunday that he had died.

Tsvangirai, who was accompanied by his wife for medical treatment in South Africa, gave the assurance in the statement that he was responding well to treatment.

He urged Zimbabweans not to panic and reiterated his call that Zimbabweans concentrate on registering to vote in the next polls.

Tsvangirai assured Zimbabweans he would be home soon to start the mammoth campaign to usher in a new dispensation in 2018.

 

Reports say the opposition leader fell ill during an MDC Alliance meeting in Kadoma on Thursday.

Last year, Tsvangirai revealed he was receiving chemotherapy for colon cancer.
