If Mukupe Is Not Fired, Then He Is Expressing Zanu-PF Sentiments, He Is Unfit For Govt Service: ZCTU

Labour body the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has said that President Emmerson Mnangagwa should sack Finance Deputy Minister Terrence Mukupe as he is unfit for public service. Mukupe has been in the media for the wrong reasons after claiming that the military would not allow Nelson Chamisa to rule if he loses the election. Mukupe was also accused of promoting stigma against HIV/Aids after insulting former minister of finance Tendai Biti about taking anti-retro virals (ARVs) on national radio. In a statement ZCTU said,

Although the government and ruling party Zanu PF tried to do damage control by distancing themselves from Mukupe’s utterances, we believe this is not enough. If Mukupe is not fired, we are bound to believe that his sentiments run through the ruling party and their denials are just smokescreens…Fighting at the workplace is a serious and dismissible offence, but the minister went scot free.
