Zimbabwe ‘to offer free cancer treatment’

It is not clear what kind of cancer treatment will be offered

Zimbabwe’s government has announced plans to start offering free treatment to cancer patients, reports state-run ZBC Radio.

Health Minister Obadiah Moyo is quoted as saying to the radio station that cancer had overtaken HIV/Aids as the main cause of death in the country.

Last year, some NGOs warned that Zimbabwe’s health sector was in a “precarious” state.

Former President Robert Mugabe was known for going to Singapore to get his own medical treatment.

Current Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga is following a similar trend of not getting treatment for his undisclosed illness inside Zimbabwe, instead going to South Africa and then China,reports The Herald newspaper.
