It never rains but pours for former MDC-T interim leader Thokozani Khupe after she confirmed that she has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Khupe confirmed the news on her Twitter account; “I have tested positive for coronavirus. I am now self-isolating and I ask for your prayers,” she tweeted.
It now means everyone who was in contact with Khupe at the MDC-T extra-ordinary congress on Sunday at the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC) will have to go into self isolation.
At the congress on Sunday there was a bizarre moment when Khupe used her mask as a handkerchief to wipe her nose before wearing it again.
Commenting on the development, journalist Hopewell Chin’ono tweeted; “This is how IRRESPONSIBLE this Government is. @DrThoko_Khupe has tested positive to the Corona Virus that causes Covid-19.
“Mnangagwa’s regime sanctioned the MDC-T congress allowing more than 1000 people to congregate in violation of its own rules. This was a super spreader event.” Nehanda Radio
