The combination of Mnangagwa cancelling a scheduled trip to Cuba and Chiwenga failing to turn up for an official event in Gweru had sparked social media speculation that the vice president's reportedly delicate health had taken a turn for the worst.

However, a social media account believed to be that of presidential spokesperson George Charamba scorned the speculation Tuesday as Chiwenga turned up at the Harare airport for the regular ritual of to welcoming Mnangagwa back home.

Chiwenga looked fit but ill-at-ease with his hands fidgeting repeatedly as he chatted with Mnangagwa at the airport.

The Zanu-PF leader returned home from the United States where he attended the annual United Nations General Assembly in New York.
