In an interview with NewZimbabwe.com, spokesperson of the Thokozani Khupe led MDC Linda Masarira dismissed allegations that she is suffering the aftermath of a botched abortion.
Masarira showed NewZimbabwe.com a scan result slip which confirmed she had developed a cyst and a fibroid in her womb. She said she now needs foreign currency for the operation. The rumour that Masarira had a botched abortion was started by Kimberly Muzenda on Facebook. Muzenda said Masarira US$160 to terminate her said pregnancy. Masarira insists the account was fake and was created by her enemies to soil her image. She says the Facebook account was opened exactly on the day she appeared before the Kgalema Motlanthe led Commission of Inquiry into the August 1 post-election violence. Said Masarira:
It is not good that people spread falsehoods on a person who is sick. It is really shocking that people can create ghost accounts to spread propaganda because they do not like me or do not like my opinions. It is really sad that we have gone down to those levels as Zimbabweans. This shows how broken we are as a nation. You may hate what I do or hate my political ideology but, do not fabricate things against me especially if it has something to do with my health.
