The Standard’s Big Interview spoke to her along with other aspirants of the MDC vice presidency:

With all that experience that I have gained over this period of time, I feel it is time to give back to the community, to assist my fellow women to raise their livelihoods and to raise the livelihoods of our children, most of them who are disadvantaged.

I was expelled from Zanu-PF where I held two ministerial positions, one deputy minister for Indigenisation and the other one was deputy minister for Social Services – a post that I carried during the government of national unity.

Both these posts gave me exposure on how government business is run and how we network with other governments and other institutions around the world.

Mutinhiri was expelled from Zanu-PF in August 2011 and joined MDC the following year in May. Other female aspirants for one the Vice Presidency positions are aurina Mpariwa, Lynette Karenyi Kore, and Lillian Timveos.
