She was taken to hospital ill after the Zanu PF congress held in Victoria Falls in December 2015 following suspected food poisoning. Zanu PF however dismissed such allegations.  She spent nearly three months in a private South African hospital, and only resumed her duties in April 2016. But, close family members dismissed the food poisoning narrative as false, saying she had a chronic heart and kidney problem. At the 2016 conference held at the Masvingo showgrounds, Mahofa was often seen driving home each time food was being served in the VVIP tent.
