Khupe Opens Up On Her Life
MDC-T president Thokozani Khupe has opened up about her life revealing that she is a single mother of three children.
The veteran opposition leader revealed that she was born on November 18, 1963, at Mpilo Hospital in Bulawayo.
Below are excerpts from the interview:
I am a proud single mother of three children, twin boys and a girl. Two lawyers and an accountant.
Having dual roles has never been easy. Our children have grown up without enjoying being with us because we spend most of our time doing political work than attending to our families. This is so because as a leader you automatically seize to be a mother of your children and you become a mother to everyone.
Khupe revealed that she wanted to be a soldier in order to defend the country from its enemies;
:€I wanted to be a soldier because I wanted to defend my country from enemies. I then became a politician where I have spent almost half of my life fighting for equal opportunities for all, and I will continue to fight for equal opportunities until every Zimbabwean has a better life.”
She castigated leaders who do engage in violence to stay in power. Said Khupe;
Leaders come and go, we must all understand that we will have this leader now and tomorrow it will be another leader. The problem that we have is that we have power hungry people who don’t want to respect their own constitution, people who want to usurp power through violence, through unconstitutional means, through discrimination.
This is the poison that we have with other political leaders. In life, you must learn to wait for your time to come and stop fast-tracking yourself into a leadership position through unprocedural means. This bad behaviour must not be allowed to continue.
