Popular gospel singer Michael “Minister” Mahendere, on Saturday lost his Apple iPad and an artiste’s make-up bag after “thieves” broke the driver’s window of his vehicle at the highly-publicised award-winning Nigerian gospel singer, Sinach’s live concert, at Glamis Arena in Harare.
Mahendere, who confirmed the incident to NewsDay yesterday, did not disclose the value of the lost goods and said,
You want to write a story? There is nothing much to write about. It was just a result of poor security. As a guest musician, I was not given a proper parking, which resulted in the breaking into of the car.
Some of the fans also criticised the concert organisers for not providing secure parking and accused hired security personnel of being behind the “thefts” at the concert. One fan identified as David Gwatidzo said,
The concert organisers were only after our money and failed to secure our cars, despite that we paid their security personnels extra $4 for what they called secure parking despite the value of our tickets. I think these security personnel were the masterminders of the thefts.
