Zimbabwe’s main opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai is critically ill in a South African hospital, reports say.

Local media quoted family sources as saying the 65-year-old former prime minister – who is being treated for colon cancer – is suffering from weight loss, exhaustion and muscle thinning.

Mr Tsvangirai’s MDC party says reports about his health are exaggerated.

During his political struggle against ex-President Robert Mugabe, he has been beaten and imprisoned numerous times.

Mr Tsvangirai has been in and out of hospital since June, receiving treatment in Johannesburg for cancer. He returned to the hospital early last month.

His health deteriorated on Monday, family sources told Zimbabwe’s Bulawayo24 news website on Tuesday.
