Johannesburg - Former Zimbabwean prime minister and MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai is expected to return to his home country next week after undergoing a "successful surgery" in South Africa, a report said on Thursday.
According to New Zimbabwe, Movement for Democratic Change general secretary Douglas Mwonzora said the 64-year-old opposition leader would likely return to Zimbabwe next week after doctors said he was out of danger.
"Our president is very much well. He is out of danger and is doing very well and out of hospital.
I spoke to him this morning (Wednesday) and we are very happy about his improvement. He is in good health now and maybe coming home next week," Mwonzora was quoted saying.
According to a previous News 24 report, Tsvangirai was discharged from a South African private medical facility on Monday this week.
However, the long-time opposition leader remained in the country to recuperate.
It, however, remained unclear what he was admitted for.
In allaying fears of him not being well, Tsvangirai urged people not to worry much about him, saying they should instead forge ahead in making Zimbabwe better as the country was in a very "perilous state".
