Karoi- A Karoi woman cheated death in a car accident that claimed a local bank manager as the two were heading to a bushy night spot for a suspected sexual escapade last week.
Those who attended the scene of accident were greeted with an array of condoms confirming how the two had geared for lasting sexual match.

According to our sources who phoned The Weekly Mirror, the now late manager with People Own Savings Bank
was on an outing with the girlfriend who cheated death as they were heading to a night spot for sexual escapades near Chiedza high density surburb.

It is suspected that he was over speeding and lost control on a sharp curve around 7 in the evening along Karoi-Kazangarare way on Sunday.

The car rolled twice and the late manager who was married died on the spot after sustaining serious head injuries but the woman escaped with a broken leg. Currently she is nursing injuries sustained at Karoi hospital.

”The accident revealed how the manager had double crossed many women on the fateful day as some were on standby for an appointment when he met his fate. It is suspected that among them were junior nurses at Karoi hospital who were waiting for their turn at hourly intervals. They were equally shocked beyond explanation when the sad news came. It was unbelievable as some knew each other, victims of love triangle, double-crossed by someone an influential position” said one source.

The Weekly Mirror has two names of the junior nurses who were going out with the late manager and they graduated from Chinhoyi of Nursing last year.

One of them confessed that she suspected that he was seeing them all but were glad that ”he was married and was just there to satisfy our needs as women”

However, there was drama at the hospital as the injured woman nursing her heart and injuries when his brother who owns a fleet of kombis took her to cleaners for claiming second victim ”in love accidents”, sources told this paper.
”The brother is a well known transport operator, literally undressed her, fuming that she is a disgrace to the family. He said she has claimed two men in love accidents and is a bad omen to the family and society” added another source at the hospital who witnessed the unfolding drama.

Also two nurses in love ring could not stomach the reality of seeing the woman who last saw the man’s last moments and declared the female ward as their no-go-area.

”The injured woman is in her late twenties and had another boyfriend who died in same circumstances in Bindura and she escaped unhurt” added our sources.

The late manager who left many broken hearts socially and professionally in Karoi was buried at his Chimanimani rural last week.

Showtime the golden opportunity to revive Kadoma, economy status

Zimbabwe is rich with natural resources in form of platinum, diamonds, gold, coal, chrome, animals among others. Kadoma is aptly the City of Gold that had many companies operating, employing thousands of people supporting extending families all over the country. Companies such as Dairiboard, David Whitehead, Rio Tinto, Cold Storage Commission, Kadoma Glass, among others were linked to the golden city and had every reason to be here. Business thrived in early 1980s to 90s as big companies wanted Kadoma golden touch. People were happy. Socially Kadoma had many teams in then popular Northen Region Soccer Division One and Two. Even Primere League had good memories of Eiffel Flats and the likes of David Godoka, John Rugg among others. Remember late reporter Lovemore Musharavati and Artwell Mandaza as the golden city was a unifying force of how a sound economy can make everyone happy? Now like Mhangura and Shabanie, the town is a ghost town without major
forms of employment to equate past memories. Times are hard after a decade of political crisis that tore the country socially and economically apart. Zimbabwe’s battered economy forced some to flee the country, but many in Kadoma remained. Though many are unemployed after major companies closed, they have hope of a revived economy. Like gold that stands the test of time, hope is within hearts of the majority who enjoy life in a mining town. A silver lining is at the end of the dark tunnel because gold, a world market commodity is still in abundance in Kadoma. Indigenisation took roots in Kadoma earlier as hundreds now own small mine claims. The challenge for them now is- Create vibrant strategies on employment for starving masses in the City of Gold and revive the economy. Pay up taxes to the Government and use professional methods. Do not exploit others so that those companies that had long closed can reopen to renew lost hope of a happy Kadoma people
that enjoyed soccer, netball, athletics, even zvigure. In this respect support Kadoma Agricultural Show bid to revive the economy.
We salute companies exhibiting and those behind a successful 98 th Edition of Excellence! Golden status must be part of a renewed hope for Kadoma. We want to be part of a successful story and cherish better results

Karoi council official probe at $20 000

By Investigative Reporter
Karoi- A Karoi council top official who fled after being implicated in stands scandal deepening probe has so far reached $20 000.00 that he defrauded prospective home owners.
According to insiders, Moses Chibaya swindled money from prospecting home owners who wanted residential and business stands.
They could pay to him and he was using a duplicate receipt book that he had stolen from the council.
He even swindled money from some rural teachers who had dreams of owning houses in Karoi town. Some of his victims are local residents who are bitter that the council must act to bring to book the thieving official.
An initial probe by the council had reached at reached at least $5000.00 that he abused but some people are now coming with their complaints and receipts that are exposing him, according to our sources.
´´No one ever suspected that they were dealing with a criminal acting on behalf of a council as he issued genuine receipts for the money he got. He did his criminal activity but implicating council as he was using the books from the local authority.
It is a shame that it was never exposed until when he fled´´ explained one source,
Another source added that he later collected some of the receipts from his victims on condition that he wanted to facilitate the allocation of the stands when he knew that it was going to be evidence against him.
´´When the initial probe was carried out he had abused money for four stands but up to now there several stands and nearly $20 000.00 involved and the probe is still on´´ added another source within the council who can not be named for professional reasons.
Chibaya fled to South Africa in August hardly a week after he was summoned to appear before a disciplinary hearing over the stands scam. It is suspected that he was tipped by some senior officers who could have benefited from the scam as he was acting on behalf of some council officials including councilors, according to our well placed sources.
He is currently holed in Johannesburg and is teaching at private school though without working permit, according to another source.
´´He does not have required papers and it is a matter of time before he is deported as he does not have working permit though he is teaching at a private school´´, Said another source.
Karoi council senior officials are accused of being involved in the stands grab and some have accumulated properties within short time when the majority is battling to make ends meet as they go for months without salaries.

PA is my customer- Karoi woman

Filed under: News — Nhaudzenyu @ 11:49 am

A Karoi based Government employee has confirmed that she has been seeing provincial administrator Christopher Shumba as a customer than a lover in response to our last week story.
In a move likely to confirm our breaking story in which is Shumba is embroiled in a love triangle with a married junior officer in the Ministry of Women’s Affairs, Gender and Community Development whose husband is an official in the Ministry of Health, a woman came to our offices last week ‘’to clarify the issue’’ about the story.
The woman who preferred to be called Mai Opa said, ‘’I want to clarify the story as it gives me out as the prime suspect of your story but the truth of the matter is that we as a family had business transactions with PA Shumba when we sold him television sets, DVDs as I do this outside my normal working hours to supplement my salary. My husband knows this and we as a family are shocked about it. My relationship with PA Shumba is purely business and professional. I want to set the record straight because it is an issue that I have to clarify as a matter of urgency. We are happily married’’
She pleaded with us not to use her husband’s name but insisted that she knew Shumba as a ‘’customer than anything else‘’
As we probed further on how she could be so touched by a story that had no names attached to her, Mai Opa insisted that she ’’want to set the record straight about this as it involves top Government officers in the province including my husband and the provincial administrator’’ she told the Weekly Mirror on Tuesday.
Our sources confirmed that after the story hit the streets, it has sent shock waves as there are some workers in the province that are being suspected to have leaked the information to the press.
‘’We are now under pressure not to discuss PA’s personnel escapades because he is on within trail to witch- hunt suspects including junior officers who are among his suspects in every district.’’ said one of our sources speaking on condition that he is not named.
However Shumba had this to say in an interview on Thursday, ‘’ I know the woman who used to supply electrical gadgets for my workers as she is a cross border trader. She failed to meet my demands and we cut off the business relationship. I can not steep so low to engage in that affair’’ said Shumba on Thursday.
Our paper broke the story last week that Shumba was going out with a married woman who visit’s him occasionally than her superiors in the provincial capital. Our sources revealed the two are well connected through short text messages and this had brought the marriage to be on the rocks.
Shumba is a former teacher from Raffingora who was a lecturer at Chinhoyi University of Technology before he was catapulted to provincial administrator in a suspected political influence of Local Government minister Ignatius Chombo as he was his campaign

We want tolerance ahead of elections

Filed under: Uncategorized — Nhaudzenyu @ 10:17 pm
Tags: , , , , ,

Zimbabwe will hold elections next year according to President Robert Mugabe and we believe by then the new constitution will be ready to be implemented. It will set a new era for the country and let us not mess around on this achievement.
This week we have two stories from Zanu PF and Movement for Democratic Change.
Zanu PF’’s Mashonaland West suspended chairman John Mafa’s case will be discussed and given the chance to answer allegations of putting his party into disrepute if it is true.
National chairman Simon Khaya-Moyo wrote to the acting executive to put on ice any developments to elect new leadership until the case is resolved.
Mafa who was suspended together with Frank Ndambakuwa as his deputy and Themba Mliswa as secretary of lands will be happy for their case to be heard and have their side of the story.
Divisions have been part of political parties and Zimbabwe is no exception.
Mafa, Ndambakuwa and Mliswa were suspended by a kangaroo court but Khaya-Moyo’s move aims at regaining respect for Zanu PF.
It is well accepted that any party must not create monsters who impose their BLUE EYED candidates even if they are not wanted by the electorate.
Movement for Democratic Change led by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai held elections for Chinhoyi district where some supporters from Zvipani faction won beating Zvinguruve faction is a sweet victory for the party.
Our question is; Will that victory celebration be a renewal of tolerance in future?
Divided Chinhoyi MDC-T members failed to attend the May congress due factionalism and unfinished business of elections, now is it over?
Last Maengahama who presided over the elections called for unity of purpose after elections and said there were peaceful and is a sign of maturity.
Both Maengahama and Khaya-Moyo must continue to preach the gospel of tolerance within their parties.
Democracy need different views and there must be no violence at all costs.
Khaya-Moyo and Maengahama are bridging the gap in the province that had been marred by internal divisions and hope it will go down to the grassroots leadership.
Zimbabwe is divided at political level and it must come to an end.
President Mugabe is preaching the gospel of peace while Prime Minister Tsvangirai’s posters for any public meetings are preaching peace and tolerance.
Let those accepting defeat within their parties also accept defeat at local, provincial and national elections. No to violence and we will condemn it no matter which political party advocates for it.
Police and other state security agencies must bring to book hooligans who are against diversity.
Let us all be tolerant for a better Zimbabwe without any bloodshed before, during and after any elections. Party leadership must continue to PREACH PEACE AND STOP VIOLENCE.
Media must also not fuel divisions but must act to build the community in social conflict through cohesion.

Suspended Zanu PF chair gets reprieve

Filed under: News — Nhaudzenyu @ 6:15 am

CHINHOYI- Zanu PF national chairman has to put Mashonaland West provincial conference due for this weekend on hold amid divisions within the party after suspended chairman John Mafa got a reprieve to have his case heard.
In a letter written on 29 August 2011, national chairman Simon Khaya-Moyo says there need to look into Mafa’s suspension before elections and the conference is held.
The letter says, ’’ I write to you acting provincial chairman [Reuben Marumahoko] that the National Disciplinary Committee has received several letters of appeal from Mafa against his removal as Mashonaland West chairman and subsequently held a meeting on 29 August to consider the appeal.’’
Khaya-Moyo further says the party constitution Article 10, Section 64, 74 and 78 resolved to have Mafa’s appeal considered.
‘’As the National Disciplinary Committee is seized with the matter, it further directs the province not to proceed with holding of elections for the post of provincial chairman until the matter is concluded. ‘’
Khaya-Moyo says in a letter in our possession.
However, party sources says the position has been a tip of ice berg in the battle to control the province with political muscles with Hurungwe senator Marumahoko, Brighton Matonga from Kadoma district as well as Walter Chidhakwa, Zvimba eyeing the post.
Marumahoko was given time to restructure the party following the death of former acting Chairman Robert Sikanyika who died in a car crash early this year but was never confirmed as substantive.
‘’These elections are stalling the provincial elections and two day conference that was on 9 and 10 September. It has been postponed indefinitely though we anticipated that they will be done soon. Some senior party members want to impose their favourite candidate ahead of primary elections for national elections set for next year’’ said a party insider who declined to be named.
Our sources say others fighting for the posts include Provincial Administrator Christopher Shumba who vying for vice chair post as well as Rati Gava who will fight it out with Webster Shamu’s wife Constance though she is using her husband political influence to get the post. Shamu at one time wanted to have his wife smuggled into Central Committee though it was resisted by some party members in Mutare, our sources added.
Hurungwe East MP Sara Mahoka is also positioning herself for the chairlady post.
Makonde MP Ray Risipa Kapesa has shown interest for the secretary position while some members are still playing it close to their chests due factionalism within the party.
The conference due to be hosted by Zvimba district at Banket Sport Club within Ignatius Chombo’s area of influence as he leads another faction that does not support Mafa, according to party insiders.
Mafa could not be reached for comment although a party insider aligned to his faction confirmed that they were happy to have his case heard.
‘’At least we will see justice being done in the party and it has been a long wait. We have been lobbying for this as some party members want o take this as a family affair. We hope the case will set how democratic we want to be a liberation movement’’ said the source who we can not name for fear of victimisation. However some Zanu PF sources allege that there was no correspondences from the national executive about Mafa’s suspension.
‘’General populace wanted to have this case heard as we feel that there are some senior members abusing us. We want transparency to rebuild the party so that we gain support against the opposition. There were organising the suspension through kangaroo courts and was never discussed at national level’’ added one of our sources from Kadoma.
Some insiders from Zvimba, Chegutu, Kariba and Makonde confirmed this in wide ranging interviews.
Other sources added that in the 2008 election, Mafa’s executive never endorsed any party candidates as there were imposed by the politburo members.
‘There is great confusion and divisions as Shamu wanted to impose his wife as Central Committee member in Mutare but was snubbed.’’ said another source from Hurungwe.
Mafa was suspended on 15 January 2010 together with Magunje MP Frank Ndambakuwa who was his deputy as well Themba Mliswa who was secretary for lands.
Zanu PF’s Mashonaland West has been rocked by internal divisions with some camps aligned to the late General Solomon Mujuru and Munangagwa leading the other faction as they battle to replace Mugabe in future.

Mafa was suspended in 2010 in a suspected ‘’cold tribal war’’ from Mashonaland West heavyweights as he is linked to the Emerson Munangagwa faction that has gained ground within the province where President Robert Mugabe hails from.
This has brought more divisions and some senior party members are supporting different factions in the provinced amid divisions within the party after suspended chairman John Mafa got a reprieve to have his case heard.
In a letter written on 29 August 2011, national chairman Simon Khaya-Moyo says there need to look into Mafa’s suspension before elections and the conference is held.
