Mukupe Insults Biti On Live Radio, Alleges Biti Is Taking ARVs

Deputy Finance Minister Terence Mukupe insulted MDC Alliance principal Tendai Biti during an interview on Star FM programme 326 Xpress hosted by Phatisani and KVG.

Mukupe alleged that Biti takes anti-retroviral (ARV) drugs after being labelled a drunkard and a clown. Biti who served as Finance Minister in the Government of National Unity (GNU) called Mukupe a clown after he was accused of buying furniture for the late Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai. Said Mukupe:

You tell me about being drunk have you taken your pills? You talk about my being drunk have I said that you take ARVs?

Yesterday, the Zanu-PF Government responded to Mukupe’s reckless statements that the army will not let Nelson Chamisa rule if he wins the 2018 elections. Last month, Mukupe was arrested and fined for assaulting his ministry’s finance director, 58-year-old Ignatius Mvere, for allegedly giving him a “paltry $910 travel allowance”.  Watch the video below:

    Is this makhupe a normal person, to my perception, he is not fit for the position he holds

    Mukupe is not fit to hold any cabinet position because of his barbaric behavior. The president must not even think twice but once to fire this self centered barbarian from government.

    Hamadzangu this uncultured MUKUPE MUST be fired and whoever vetted this uncouth illmannered idiot with mouth diarhorea and gave him a ministerial post must be relieved of his post. On his must slinging with Tendai I have said this and will repeat politics dzokunyombana will never make Zimbabwe move an inch forward. Words are very bad once they leave the mouth can never be retrieved it started with them denigrating the president it shows lack of maturity and an inclination torwards offending behaviour check what has been said !!!!!

    What he seems to ignore Mukupe is many senior Gvt officials are on the treatment as well. And attacking with HIV is reversing the efforts of the Gvt as well in removing stigmatization.

    During your short stint as Dep Fin Min.. u hv said some stuff tht doesnt suit the office u hold! For me… the “Army wil not let Chamisa rule” and “”Stigmatization on pple with HIV” bullshit was all l needed to convince myself about the profile u hv been building for yourself since yo appointment! Recently u undermined yo boss Chinamasa by implying tht Chidzero was the last Finance Minister worth holding tht position! U also undermined His Excellency ED n Dep Mohadi on respecting the will of the people from the forthcoming elections … (jus like yo brother from another mother Shamu..!!) ln.essence you are bent on undoing wht the President is fixing since he came into office… hw dare u…?

    we want u out of office like yesterday… n go farming with Tyson Kasukuwere!

    Unbelievable!!! I never expected that this day would reach. My wedding ceremony was last month and still now it looks like am dreaming. After all my relationship went through, I never thought this day would come. Those of you who knew me and my fiance before, and those of you who have been at my home you know very well that I had everything a lady wishes for in life. Life was so good but it is hard to explain how things changed for the worse so quickly. I first heard rumors that my man is seeing another woman. In a short time I found out that it was true. When I confronted him, he instead chose the other woman over me and in fact he later moved out and left the kids with me to suffer. I must admit life became so hard that I visited priests & healers for help. My life was in a mess that I couldn’t concentrate at work. Soon I lost my job and in no time I became so broke. I had no source of income and he refused to support me, not even taking my calls. Luckily a caring old friend of mine took me to Mama Hope +27635876438 who had also helped her in a similar situation. She is specialized in solving marriage and relationship issues, cleansing from bad luck, women who cannot get pregnant and many others, but as for me I didn’t care about anything else she does. All I wanted was only to bring back my fiance and my happiness. That’s what mattered to me at that particular time. So I decided to give it a try. But hey this lady is amazing. She performed special prayers for me and cleansed me from bad luck. Friends am telling you the truth, just within a week after the prayers, my fiance came back home asking for forgiveness. Oh GOD I could not believe it. He asked me to marry him and I thought it was a joke. Our wedding was last year in may. Now, I am married, happy and so excited. I thank you my friends for standing with me in my hardships and during my wedding preparations. God bless you all. Many people are asking me for Mama Hope’s number. Am giving it out here in case you are having any problems in your life or marriage or if your man is cheating or if he left you. Give it a try. Here is her contact: Mama Hope +27635876438. You can even whatsapp her.
