MDC-T senator Elias Mudzuri was nearly bitten by a snake during the burial of MDC founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai in 2018.
This was revealed by former DailyNews editor, Pedzisai Ruhanya on Twitter. He said the giant Mudzuri showed the deadly serpent a clean pair of heels after it charged towards him during the late icon's burial.
"Dear Senator Mudzuri: A Humanikwa villager who attended the burial of Morgan in 2018 said that you were almost bitten by a snake. You had to run away. The person is asking whether you were doing rituals of your own concerning the snake. He says MDC people know the snake incident!" tweeted the respected former media practitioner.
Meanwhile, MDC-T interim leader Thokozani Khupe and allies Saturday visited late party founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai’s Buhera home to 'formally apologise to the Tsvangirai family about the ill treatment that the old lady suffered at the hands of some youths including the vanguard during her son’s funeral.'
Khupe recently won a court battle against Nelson Chamisa to head MDC.
She was accompanied by reinstated MDC-T secretary general Douglas Mwonzora, Morgen Komichi and Mudzuri.
In a video that has gone viral on social media, Khupe pulled a shocker and prayed fervently while invoking late Morgan Tsvangirai's spirit to give them strength in their current fight for party control. This left many Zimbabweans shell-shocked because because Khupe was at loggerheads with Tsvangirai for several months before his death. In Zimbabwean culture, speaking to the departed's spirit at graveside is done by relatives.
Ruhanya also revealed that Khupe and her team were onto some witchcraft rites at the grave of the late Morgan Tsvangirai.
“Mwonzora MDC group have just left Buhera where they had some rituals there where they were chanting Nelson Chamisa's name at Tsvangirai’s grave,” He wrote on Twitter.
