Former Vice President Joice Mujuru is not sick but has been on a diet and exercise weight loss programme for some time, social media personality Wellence Mujuru has said.
In a post on Facebook, Wellence refuted claims that the former VP was very sick after images showing that Mai Mujuru has lost significant weight surfaced on social media. He wrote:
“I would like to clarify that Joice Mujuru ( Teurai Mujuru) is very well and keeping healthy.
“In response to messages and posts that she is sick which is very very untrue after photos of Mhamha with her Grandkids circulating .
“She has been on a diet and exercise weight loss for some time now and has been very successful, her Doctor has not found anything wrong with her.
“Why l have decided to attach those two pictures that reflect her wonderful progress in keeping healthy.
“Thank You for those reaching out but she is well.”
Since her sacking from the ruling ZANU PF party and government on 2 April 2015, Mai Mujuru’s political fortunes have waned.
Unlike her erstwhile colleagues such as Didymus Mutasa who have rejoined ZANU PF, Mai Mujuru has hitherto avoided entanglement with the ruling party.
