Advocate Thabani Mpofu of the “fulcrum” and “the pith” fame has denied allegations saying that he is representing the Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr Obadiah Moyo who has been implicated in the abuse of COVID-19 response funds.
Mpofu posted on Twitter last night in response to a message making rounds on social media which suggests that “the firebrand lawyer” was going to Rhodesville Police Station “to get hold of what is currently taking place regarding my client.”

Posting on Twitter, Mpofu who is the lawyer of opposition MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa said:
Well, it is not true that I’m representing Obadiah Moyo. Khululeka Zimbabwe. I don’t even know who his lawyers are. He is, however, entitled to legal representation by lawyers of his choice of whom I AM NOT one. Handisi gweta rake. [I am not his lawyer].
The reports are made when some are castigating lawyers who are also officials in the opposition MDC for representing corruption accused ZANU PF officials.
Observers say although everyone is entitled to legal representation, MDC officials are not compelled to represent corrupt accused government officials adding that taking the cases is tantamount to defeating the efforts to combat corruption in the country.
