“TWO MINISTERS TOP SUSPECTS IN ED POISON CASE
As the nation struggles to come to terms with shock and fear following the poisoning of Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa a fort night ago, details have emerged that Defence Minister Sydney Sekeramayi and Health & Child Welfare Minister David Parirenyatwa were allegedly behind the poisoning of the Vice President.
Both Ministers are medical doctors by profession.
According to reports, Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa boarded an Airforce plane at the Zimbababwe Defence College on the fateful day in the company of the two ministers.
Another minister Simon Kaya Moyo was also reportedly on board.
It is said that while in the chopper, the Vice President was served with some samosas, sandwiches and grapes that he unsuspectingly ate.
The food is said to have been brought by Sydney Sekeramayi from home.
It is not yet established who was part of the cabin crew.
Upon arrival at the Gwanda Youth Interface rally, Vice President Mnangagwa took to the VIP tent and did not eat anything that was served.
He however began to feel dizzy and began vomiting, forcing his aides to alert Intelligence Minister Kembo Mohadi who then called paramedics to assist him.
Parirenyatwa reportedly tried to do some tests on the VP before suggesting that he be flown to Matadaei Hospital in Bulawayo, a decision the VP rejected; perhaps fearing the worst.
Instead he agreed to be flown to Gweru where he was attended to by his private doctors after which he was transferred to Manyame Hospital and then to South Africa the following morning where doctors detected toxins in his system.
Up to 97% of the toxins were flashed out when the VP was initially admitted.
The toxins had reportedly started to affect his liver, explaining why he had suffered blood-strained vomits.
The latest details on the poisoning saga are in contrast with unsubstantiated claims that the VP had been poisoned from some ice cream served at the rally from Gushungo dairy.
The false rumors could have emanated from the poisoning syndicate that sought to conceal evidence for their criminal actions.
