Khupe this week said she intended to save many lives through the initiative. “The foundation will make sure that women have access to checkups because early detection of cancer saves lives.
We will also make sure that women have access to treatment and information. Right now, some of us are going to South Africa for treatment, not because we want to go there, but because there are no facilities here. This must change,” said Khupe.
The Deputy Prime Minister is battling breast cancer. She wanted to set up a cancer foundation with the late musician Tongai Moyo, but Moyo unfortunately passed away before the pair could achieve their dream.
