President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his nemesis Nelson Chamisa have sent messages wishing the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson a speedy recovery.

Johnson is currently admitted to the hospital where he is being treated for the deadly Coronavirus.

Said Mnangagwa, "On behalf of the people of Zimbabwe, I wish Prime Minister Boris Johnson a speedy recovery and return to good health. We stand in solidarity with him and the British people during these challenging times."

In response to Mnangagwa's message ZANU PF said they hope when Johnson has recovered he will appreciate Zimbabwe's policy of re-engagement.

"Thank you Cde President. You continue to lead the Party & Government with maturity and dignity. We hope the British PM Boris Johnson pulls through from the clutches of this pandemic. We hope in the fullness of time, the United Kingdom will appreciate the essence of re-engagement."

The MDC Leader Chamisa urged Zimbabweand to practice social distancing to fight the deadly virus.

"Wishing PM Boris Johnson a full and speedy recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those whose families and loved ones are affected by COVID19."
Chamisa posted on Twitter. "We must remain vigilant and play our part. Social distance, wash your hands & report suspected cases.COVID19 must fall!"

Johnson's condition is currently worsening and British media said he will be put on a ventilator to assist him to breathe.
