The late Minister of State for Masvingo Province Shuvai Mahofa’s daughter has claimed that her mother succumbed to high blood pressure after she learnt that Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa had been poisoned at a Youth Interface Rally in Gwanda. The daughter, Nyengeterai, said:
She (Mahofa) was stressed when she learnt that the VP (Mnangagwa) had been poisoned. She was stressed greatly and cried for two hours. Her blood pressure rose dramatically, she then collapsed before we took her to hospital where she was pronounced dead.
We are not interested in what people really said or did not say. We are accepting this as the way that was chosen for her to go.

Mahofa herself is reported to have been poisoned at the Zanu PF annual conference held in Victoria Falls in December 2015. She was declared a national heroine and was buried at the National Heroes Acre on Sunday.
However, there was controversy as part of the crowd walked out when Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko was reading his speech. The people who walked out wanted President Robert Mugabe or Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa to preside over the burial arguing that Mphoko was part of the G40 Faction which they accused of poisoning Mahofa.
