Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Alliance Deputy Spokesperson Felix Magalela Mafa Sibanda has discarded and blocked his 50 year old son Divine from communicating with him after the young Mafa released a statement praising Thokozani Khuphe. In his statement released on 5 June 2020, the United States based Divine praised Ms Khuphe for being a constitutionalist and super star democrat. The statement sent tongues waging in the rival Chamisa camp where the senior Mafa was appointed deputy spokesperson early June.
On 7 May 2020, the senior Mafa released a scatching statement where he revealed that he had blocked his son from communicating with him due to his stance.
Felix Mafa is an old rival of Ms Khuphe’s Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora since the days they contested each other for National Constitutional Assembly (NCA) Deputy Chairmaship in the early 2000s. It is alleged that Mr Mwonzora connived with a pregnant woman to storm an NCA Public Meeting and claim that Mr Mafa impregnated her and eloped. Thus Mr Mafa, did not take lightly his son’s public liaison with a faction whose key players include his nemesis Mwonzora.
Below is Felix Mafa’s Full statement about his son.
Re: Scandalous and treacherous articles by the purported by Dr Divine,my biological son.
I’m reading some most outrageous and treacherous articles purported by Dr Divine Magalela Mafa Sibanda my biological son based in the USA .
He is bitter against myself to have refused to be abused by Mwonzora and his cabal.
I’m not sure whether he is the real author of all articles anti president Chamisa and indirectly myself.
I have formally discussed his attacks on our body politics,the MDC A with the National Organiser, Hon Chibaya and currently after my appointment as the deputy secretary for communication with the National chairman,Hon T Khumalo.
I have since blocked all his communication with him ,which is very unfortunate for me and the entire Magalela Mafa-family.
He is a Mwonzora fanatic whereby , as a Democrat myself , I don’t mind or care for he is an adult, 50+ years old.
I hope by this information herein,all shall appreciate my predicament and laugh it off.
Felix Magalela Mafa Sibanda.
( Deputy Secretary for Communication, NEC and NC Member of the you MDC A)
