Sunday Mail Features and Opinions Editor Garikai Mazara has reported controversial businessman Wicknell Chivayo for allegedly insulting him over Whatsapp. This happened after Mazara had published a story which was highly critical of Chivayo and exposed his lack of progress on the Gwanda solar project in an article titled “The $202 million Gwanda Scam” in the Sunday Mail which came out on 19 February 2017.
Chivayo did not take this kindly and started abusing Mazara on Whatsapp. Mazara shared one screen shot which showed part of the alleged abuse.
He also insinuated that Mazara was HIV positive saying:
In your profile picture muromo wakafunuka. I’m sure inzara and mapundu ese ayo, asi une Aids?
In your profile picture your lips are cracking. I’m sure it’s because of hunger and all thoses pimples, do you have Aids:
The case was reported at Harare Central Police Station under case number CR 2607/2/2017
