On Monday socialite and businessman Tazvi Mhaka, came out in defence of fellow socialite Pokello Nare on Instagram. This comes after Pokello was engaged in a furious Facebook on Friday which attracted more than 8000 comments. Pokello exchanged words with UK based socialite Taka Chivore who had accused Pokello of cheating on her husband with Tazvi Mhaka and Genius Kadungure.
Posting on Instagram, Tazvi Mhaka said:
I choose to stick with my friends no matter what. I will be breaking the friendship code by sitting idle whilst morality, ethics and principles social media supervisors slander and throw people so special & invaluable to me in the muddy waters.these are my sisters and brothers by all means. it means nothing if you think otherwise.
Firstly, my birthday party was organised by my friends as a surprise. As with such events, invitees are invariably drawn from friends and family. Pokello, Jacqueline and Ruvheneko are my sisters, and that will remain a fact, regardless of a penchant by some to arouse speculation.
Secondly, Pokello’s husband was invited by organisers of the party. Regrettably, owing to prior business engagements in Paris, he could not attend much as he would have loved to. The attendance by his wife was with his full blessings.
Finally, it is always prudent, if not courteous, to verify information before deploying defamatory statements and innuendo on social media and newspapers.
