She had worked at the Parliament of Zimbabwe as a Public Relations Officer in the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee, the Portfolio Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Budget and Finance Committee. She had working experience as an interpreter at the same Parliament.
She also served as the Healing, Reconciliation and Rehabilitation Manager at the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission.

ZEC Deputy Spokesperson
Mpofu's appointment as a ZEC commissioner was condemned as she worked at Parliament, in the office that was charged with accepting the nominations of candidates who were to be interviewed for the six ZEC posts. 
Opposition activist and information technology expert Freeman Chari who is based in the United States of America said:
I think the appointment of both Shepherd Manhivi and Catherine Mpofu was unconstitutional. Both were public officers according to our constitution. And public officers are ineligible to be appointed to the ZEC. I find it a bit weird that folks who worked in the office that was charged with accepting the nominations are the ones who got appointed. This does not really bode well.
