Thokozani Khupe’s spokesperson Mr Khalipani Phugeni has rejected insinuations that the Khupe led MDC T faction is a Zanu Pf project whose sole aim is to neutralise the youthful MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa, Sunday News reports.
In dismissing the reports, Phugeni said Khupe has never received anything from Zanu PF:
It is a sad thing that people would treat others in a manner they would not want to be treated themselves, because we all know that natural justice demands that he that accuses must prove. Dr Khupe has previously been arrested over seven times, she has received nothing, publicly or privately from Zanu-PF, which the same cannot be said about her detractors.
Simply because she stood firm and pushed back against infringement of her rights and stood resolute defending not only herself but her gender because she was being marginalised on the basis of her gender and ethnicity, so she stood firm, which the ruling elite and the private media did not like. They did not like this woman who was not submissive.
Earlier this month, Khupe took over MDC Alliance headquarters Harvest House assisted by state security agents, which further fueled stories they were working for or with the ruling party to neutralise the ruling party’s strongest opponent Nelson Chamisa.
