'Khupe not a regional leader, speaks all languages'

Published: 08 July 2018
FORMER deputy prime minister Thokozani Khupe has dismissed charges that she is a regional politician insisting she is the only MDC-T leader to have been unanimously backed by all of the country's provinces.

Khupe, who leads a faction of the MDC-T party, was responding to questions at a panel discussion in Harare last Thursday.

"I have never been a regional leader because, when I was elected first time around as the deputy president of my party, I was elected by all the 12 provinces unanimously," she said.

"So, how do I become a regional leader? In 2008, when things were tough, all the men ran away, and I held the party together single-handedly."

"And then I was doing my Masters' degree at NUST and I had to defer it because I had to come to Harare where Harvest House had been turned into a refugee camp for victims of political violence.

"I was helping everyone regardless of where they were coming from. I speak Shona and Ndebele and many other languages."
