Zanu PF Secretary for Administration Obert Mpofu has officially become a Twimbo as he officially opened a Twitter account, Sunday News reports.
Mpofu who can be reached on his official handle @DrObertMpofu said he was on Twitter to counter fake news and emphasized the need to follow where the people are:
Due to the COVID-19 crisis we find ourselves disengaged from the people. So social media gives us room to make contact with people and have blow to blow exchanges on important national issues.
So the idea is to use this space to share authentic information on issues surrounding our politics and information on the economy. Our absence here has caused national debate to be arrogated by reactionaries and imperialist handled propagandists
We need to be where the young and the old are. Our national debates are on such platforms and as the Secretary for Administration of the ruling and a prominent party of liberation, it’s imperative for me to engage all Zimbabweans across the political and ideological divide.
Mpofu also spoke about his time during quarantine and dismissed reports that he was bedridden in quarantine and said he was not bedridden while encouraging people to be tested for COVID-19 regularly.
