Speaking to ZimEye on Monday, the former cabinet minister said, “no I don’t even know the name, I don’t know the person, and how can she be my daughter?,” he asked while in a chuckle.

He continued saying, “you can even ask her if she knows me.”

He emphasised further saying, “look it’s not a sin to have a daughter, and this one is not my daughter… unless if they’re saying every Mpofu is my relative or my daughter, honestly, the poor girl, I wish her well and I am just happy for her but she’s not my daughter I don’t even know her, I doubt if she knows me,” he said.

Thousands of Zimbabweans circulated pictures of the commissioner while saying she is the politburo member’s daughter.
