MDC Deputy President, Dr Thokozani Khupe has dismissed reports that she met former president, Robert Mugabe at his Blue Roof mansion.

“That is rubbish. I know fiction writing when I read it, that is what you are talking about. If you read throughout the story, you will be ashamed to be called a journalist with such fiction writers. It is hogwash. If you believe anything there, you can as well believe that the devil is in heaven. It’s rubbish,” she said through her personal assistant, Witness Dube.

Dube also confirmed that his boss might be meeting Nelson Chamisa for talks.“Dr Khupe is a principled person, she does not believe in talks being held in the media and so, whatever is being discussed and worked upon, she believes it must be done in truth and honesty. Whatever talks that are being held, she expects that this must not be done in the media, hence, she will not say any word regarding that. She expects the same from fellow leaders,” Dube said, dismissing speculation linking her boss to the newly-formed National Patriotic Front (NPF).
