treatment. We are excited,” said a businessman.
Another said, “As local business people with interest in doing business in Zimbabwe, we would always be praying and wishing him well.”
 Former spokesperson for the opposition National People’s Party (NPP), Jealousy Mawarire also called to inquire about Mnangagwa’s situation.
