HARARE – ZANU PF Secretary for Administration Cde Obert Mpofu let his heart open today when he journeyed back to that time when he came face to face with death.
Taking his jab today at the Party’s Headquarters, Cde Mpofu could not help it but look back at the time when for almost a month, he lay in hospital after falling prey to the deadly corona virus.
The virus has killed into hundreds of thousands and continues to do so in its different waves. The Party during this second phase of vaccination, has taken a leading role in ensuring that it protects its employees and their families.
“I was facing death. I saw death facing me. It wasn’t easy. I had almost ruled myself out. I could not move. I could not breathe. I was hospitalised with machines all over my body. I had more or less given up my life but the experts worked tirelessly everyday for almost a month,” Cde Mpofu said.

“This virus kills and some of my colleagues have been fortunate enough not to go through this experience.”
He expressed satisfaction after taking the vaccine and encouraged others to do the same.
“I am so excited about taking my vaccine. So far so good. I feel secure and safe against this virus now that I have take the vaccine. It is the most essential thing that people have to go for because it has to do with their survival and saving lives,” he said.
“We have lost essential lives and our people due to this virus and it is my hope and wish that all institutions must follow suit as President Cde E.D Mnangagwa.”

It is common for the wife to nurse her husband during the time of illness but for Cde Mpofu’s wife, it was the most difficult time as she had to watch him also from a hospital bed.
Mrs Sikhanyisiwe Mpofu said “it was a difficult period that we went through. I was lucky because I had mild symptoms. It is not something that I wish anyone to go through,” she said.
“We were both in pain and it was difficult to see him suffer in the same ward. I could see everything that was happening because fortunately at that time the ward was empty. It is a problem when the two of you fall ill at the same time.”
