    Majongwe suffers stroke


    HARARE – Firebrand Progressive Teachers' Union (PTUZ) secretary general, Raymond Majongwe who is also the secretary general of the newly formed Trade Union Congress of Zimbabwe (TUCZ) is admitted at St Giles Rehabilitation Hospital in Harare after suffering a mild stroke on Monday last week.
    Majongwe collapsed at around 4pm while at work and was taken to The Avenues Clinic unconscious. He could not speak and spent some days at The Avenues before he was transferred to St Giles for rehabilitation.
    Majongwe confirmed his predicament to The Mirror and said that he was enjoying a quick recovery and was now able to speak.
    "I suffered a minor right hand stroke on Monday afternoon which left me unconscious. I could not speak for some days even after regaining consciousness but I am happy that my recovery has been very quick as I can now talk and walk about and I should be discharged from hospital anytime now.
    "The cause of the stroke was high blood pressure," said Majongwe.
    He however, bemoaned the state of equipment at the hospital which he said was obsolete. He urged Government to look into the situation at rehabilitation centres like St Giles and Ruwa in the next budget as these needed urgent attention.
    "The hospitals are in a sorry state and yet this is where people who suffer strokes, people with serious injuries from accidents receive medical help. We take these institutions for granted as we drive past but one is bound to realise their importance when one falls sick and is admitted here," said Majongwe.
    He applauded staff at the hospital for their hard work under difficult working conditions.
