Jacob Ngarivhume, leader of the opposition Transform Zimbabwe has since apologized to Pararenyatwa Hospital after his allegations that their incompetence led to his niece's death.

Ngarivhume's niece passed away at Parirenyatwa Hospital and Ngarivhume made a tweet claiming that Doctors at Parirenyatwa had mistakenly cut her intestines during a C-section therefore leading to her death.

This caused a huge stir especially with the media forcing Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals to reply to the politician's accusations which they ruled off as false. 

The group stated that Ngarivhume's niece had her operation at a private hospital and only got to their (Parirenyatwa) premises already fighting for her life, they did not perform any operation on her.

Following on the story, on Friday Ngarivhume made a tweet apologizing to the medical institution.

"I need to set the record straight. My remarks on the incident involving my late niece were misleading in that they put the blame entirely on Pari. That was not my intention," reads his tweet.
