Chief Chiwara of Gutu South has threatened to sue Mr William Majada who is a member of the National People’s Party (NPP) for impersonated him during party leader, Dr Joice Mujuru’s rally held at Maungwa Business Centre in Gutu South.
The chief who is a staunch Zanu-PF supporter, former freedom fighter and an executive member in the district structures of the party has summoned Mr Majada to his traditional court over the issue. Speaking to the Chronicle Chief Chiwara said:
I was surprised to learn through the local newspapers that I attended an NPP rally at Maungwa Business Centre. The paper used Majada of NPP’s picture purporting to be me. Majada is not even a chief and I wonder why he chose to impersonate me and soil my name. I have summoned him to my court and if he defies my order I will consult my lawyers with a view to take legal action. I have also demanded a retraction from the local papers.
Contacted for comment by the paper NPP Masvingo provincial chairman Mr Oliver Chirume said that it was not their duty to clarify if one was a chief or not.
