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:
