Zimbabwe's Tsvangirai ill after meeting, airlifted to hospital - party source

HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai suffered severe vomiting after a party meeting and was airlifted from Harare to a Johannesburg hospital, a senior party source said on Saturday.
Tsvangirai's condition was currently stable, the source said, adding that the sudden illness did not relate to Tsvangirai's ongoing cancer treatment.
The 65-year-old's symptoms came on suddenly while at a meeting of his main opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) on Thursday evening in Kadoma, a city around 160 km (100 miles) southwest of the capital Harare, the source said. He was taken to hospital on Friday, the source added.
Tsvangirai, who leads a broad coalition of opposition parties, is due to challenge his long-time political foe President Robert Mugabe at an election next year.
Two other Zimbabwean political sources confirmed the details of his illness and move to South Africa.
