Govt to sponsor ex-Deputy PM Khupe cancer treatment in India

Review & Mail Writer

President ED Mnangagwa has reportedly authorised Government “to fully fund” former Deputy Prime Minister Thokhozani Khupe’s medical trip to India following a second cancer attack, according to an official.

Presidential spokesman, George Charamba, writing on X under the moniker Dhonzamusoro007 on Thursday revealed this, touting  Mnangagwa as “Compassionate Leadership”.

Khupe, a former opposition MDC-T president, recently appeared unwell after she went to Parliament to be sworn in as a Senator under the Citizens Coalition for Change.

Following viral pictures on the internet, Khupe wrote on X: “I have a second cancer attack. I am doing well, and many thanks to those already wishing me well. Together we can beat cancer.”

She said she was doing well and thanked those who had expressed concern for her.

However, he has not confirmed details of her new cancer treatment, after the grueling rub with the disease in 2012.

Sixty-year-old Khupe was one of two deputy prime ministers alongside Arthur Mutambara during the power sharing “inclusive” Government between 2009-13.
