Senior party members close to the former deputy minister of Youth and Indigenization told The Zimbabwean that Mahlangu was admitted at the health centre about four weeks ago after a rare and aggressive form of cancer developed on his right cheek.

“The cancer started as a small pimple on the cheek. The pimple has now developed into cancer. The MP is admitted at Hillside where he is now undergoing chemotherapy” said a senior party official who refused to be named for fear of being accused of intruding into the MP’s privacy.

The official said Mahlangu is responding very well to medication.

“His condition has improved remarkably compared to the time he was admitted. His face was swollen and you could hardly recognize him” added the official.

Mahlangu was last year one of the nominees of the Zimrights sponsored outstanding MP of the year. The MP has initiated numerous developmental projects in his constituency.
