Supa Mandiwanzira files $7 million defamation lawsuit against former NetOne ceo & Daily News

Information Communication Technology minister Supa Mandiwanzira has filed a $7 million defamation lawsuit against former NetOne chief executive officer, Reward Kangai, claiming he defamed him in an article he caused to be published in the Daily News in May last year based on Kangai’s complaint letter, dated April 21, 2016, addressed to chief secretary to Cabinet, where the former NetOne boss accused Mandiwanzira of corruptly running the parastatal.

Through his lawyer, Raphael Tsivama, Mandiwanzira, claims that the article is untrue and exposed him to public ridicule and contempt. He added that Kangai further inferred Mandiwanzira hired a bogus South African company, Megawatt, to audit NetOne’s data project at a time another forensic audit was being done Price Waterhouse-Coopers, thus, prejudicing the government.

Associated Newspapers of Zimbabwe, publishers of the Daily News and its editor Stanley Gama were also cited as respondents.
