Tsvangirai battling 4 his life

MDC president Morgan Tsvangirai, battling for his life, and was urgently flown to South Africa on Friday night after his health condition deteriorated. Tsvangirai had been addressing a party meeting in Kodama when he allegedly started experiencing severe vomiting, prompting his doctor to have him transported to South Africa. The MDC says its leader has brushed aside his health scare to encourage Zimbabweans to register to vote in the coming elections. As the election draws closer Chamisa, whom Tsvangirai catapulted to the position of vice-president last year, could capitalize the situation and be a front-runner to take over from his boss. “There are calls within the party and among our supporters that Tsvangirai should stay at home, rest and relax because the extra work he is doing is taking a heavy toll on his health. The emergency which saw him being airlifted to South Africa left the party in panic,” the source said.

Mother and son chosen to live on a high street bench for three years

A Somali mother and son were evicted from their flat in Tooting, London, in 2014 for not paying their rent
Since then, the pair have been living on a bench on the busy Tooting High Street and sleep under tarpaulin. The council tried to rehome them but they turned down two-bedroom flats, which usually cost £1,500 a month. They chose to remain on the bench despite final pleas from their family and members of the local Somali community.
The mother and son have been homeless since December 2014 when they were evicted from the flat they shared in Tooting. It is thought a death in the family and a period of hospitalisation led to them living on the streets.
