Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai is ill. Reports say he failed to attend a star rally that he was supposed to address at the Zimbabwe Grounds in Harare today following doctor’s orders. His top lieutenants were expecting him to make a show and left it until afternoon to tell the crowd that Tsvangirai would not make it. Some of the supporters were so disappointed that they did not wait to hear the acting secretary-general Tapiwa Mashakada address the crowd despite pleases from organising secretary Nelson Chamisa who broke the news. The reports did not say what Tsvangirai is suffering from. Tsvangirai turned 62 in March.
