Speaking at an event to drum up moral and spiritual support for Thokozani Khupe in Bulawayo on Wednesday, Abednico Bhebhe criticised women for not supporting Khupe.
He said women are their own worst enemies. Said Bhebhe:
At times I get extremely disappointed with women. You have the powers that you were given by God but you can’t use them. If you know the father of the child you are carrying in the womb, surely you should decide for the whole world. My problem is you can’t decide for the whole world. Now the biggest and worst enemy is not a man, your biggest enemy is yourself. They are so many women’s organisations here in Zimbabwe, and you know that Khupe was recently attacked by men, not by women. She has been attacked three times and I happened to be there, but with so many women’s organisations, we are not hearing your voices. Every time I hear some gossip going around, I am not hearing it from men, but I hear it from women. Those that are attacking Khupe the loudest are women. One woman came out saying this country is not ready to be ruled by a woman. I almost fell down, this is a woman saying that to another woman.
