Advocate Thabani Mpofu of the “fulcrum”, the “pith” fame who is representing opposition MDC leader, Nelson Chamisa in his leadership wrangle with Thokzani Khupe has said the alleged break-in into his house was not enough to warrant his silence.
The defiant lawyer said he had “every reason to believe” that the raid was carried out by State agents looking for information. He added:
They took my laptop, my wife’s phone and cash. They had all the time to even re-arrange stuff. I think we had passed out.
So far there are a number of incidents which are puzzling which have been experienced by the lawyer. In June, Mpofu sustained minor injuries as his vehicle where he was a passenger overturned in Muzarabani days after he had been roped in by Chamisa to represent him again in the above-mentioned matter.
A few weeks later, some “mysterious” men were photographically captured red-handed, fiddling with the right left-wheel of Advocate Thabani Mpofu’s car.
Some analysts opined that this spate of unfortunate incidents was artificial, designed by Chamisa’s opponents to silence the lawyer.
