In an interview with Daily News, Home Affairs Minister Obert Mpofu opened up on his source of wealth which critics believe he amassed when he joined former president Robert Mugabe’s regime.
Mpofu denied receiving bribes from anyone and challenged anybody who thinks they bribed him to come out in public. Said Mpofu:
I have worked hard with my family to be where I am and I do not owe anybody anything and I appeal to anybody who thinks he gave me or bribed me to come forward and tell the public about it as I have never, in my whole life, received anything from anybody as an inducement for I do not need anything from anybody.
Mpofu denied claims that he owns a number of buildings in Victoria Falls saying he owns no property in the resort town, challenging anyone with documents proving ownership of these properties to come forward. Said Mpofu
I am aware of the nonsense that has been peddled by political and social opponents who feel challenged by my successes. I am proud of what I have and no one will take away what I have sweated for because I have worked for everything I have. The most expensive asset I have is the famous seven-storey York House building which the family bought from Old Mutual in 1998. The Victoria Falls nonsense that I own the whole or most of it is as stupid as the idiots who are peddling it. Can they list those assets so that I can take ownership of them if they ever exist.
