From George Maponga in Masvingo
MASVINGO Provincial Affairs Minister Senator Shuvai Mahofa resumed official duties on Tuesday after nearly four months on the sidelines suffering from an undisclosed ailment that saw her at one time hospitalised in South Africa.
Sen Mahofa (74) was initially expected to return to work on March 5, but postponed the date to regain strength.
Sen Mahofa announced that she was back at work at her Benjamin Burombo Government complex offices.
“I am happy that I am now fully fit and have resumed my duties. I started going to the office on Tuesday and today (Wednesday) is my second day and it feels good to be back,’’ she said.
“I am now in good shape and I feel better. I am more than prepared to discharge my duties. It’s now back to business.’’
She was last seen in the office before the 15th Zanu-PF Annual National People’s Conference held in Victoria Falls where she reportedly went down following a stomach problem.
Sen Mahofa was initially hospitalised at an undisclosed Harare hospital before being transferred to South Africa after her condition reportedly deteriorated.
A director in her office, Mr Kudakwashe Machako, has been conducting business in her absence.
