breast cancer for quite some time and has been prayed for by Zimbabweans, has undergone a successful operation in South Africa.

This was revealed by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai in Plumtree recently while he was addressing his party Movement for Democratic Change (MDC-T) supporters during a rally at Dingumuzi Stadium.

In his opening remarks the Premier said, “First of all, I want us to thank God for helping Vice President [of the MDC-T] Ms Khuphe who has undergone a successful operation in South Africa.”

Khuphe’s victory comes barely two months after a rare and affectionate occasion on which Christians from across denominations thronged to Mzilikazi suburb’s MacDonald Hall  in Bulawayo for a mass prayer dedicated to her. Khuphe, a born-again Christian, testified during the mass prayer that she had already been miraculously healed by the Most High. “Christians, faith is something that is very important, it is said that your faith is one that heals you. I thank you that your prayers and my faith which I possess made me receive my healing,” she said to the applause of the congregation.

Sources within the MDC-T in Bulawayo told RelZim last week that Khuphe, also a legislator for Makokoba Constituency, was still south of the Limpopo in the company of her sister and is expected back in Zimbabwe this week.
