In an interview, Nkala’s nephew Hebert, the family spokesperson, said they were leaving everything in the hands of God.

“This is a very distressing period for the entire family,” he said.

“We are, however, grateful for the amazing work doctors and nurses are doing. At this juncture we are appealing to all Zimbabweans to pray for him,” he added.

Herbert added that the former Defence minister’s wife, Thandiwe, and his children had to travel from Bulawayo to be by his side since he was admitted at the clinic early this month.

He said the family reached an agreement with authorities at a Bulawayo hospital, where Nkala was being treated, for him to be transferred to the private clinic in Harare, where there are better facilities.

Herbert, however, declined to disclose the nature of the veteran politician’s ailment.
