Clerk Of Parliament Dismisses Letter Claiming VP Chiwenga Has Died

The Clerk of Parliament Mr Kennedy Chokuda has disowned as fake a letter circulating on social media platforms purportedly written by him on behalf of Parliament, in which he expressed his condolences on the alleged death of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.

Chokuda said that the letter did not originate from him or Parliament. He said that the signature on the letter was certainly not his.

A ZBC News Online report further said that Chokuda dismissed the letterhead used on the fake letter. It said:

- - - Buy NetOne, Telecel Airtime on WhatsApp using EcoCash.
Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229
No extra charges. - - -

Mr Chokuda said the logo used on the letter is not the logo that Parliament uses for external communication, especially not to an esteemed office such as the Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC) saying Parliament has an approved letterhead that is used in all official communication.

He reiterated that Parliament, as an institution, is guided by strict protocol and procedure in communicating with the OPC and it is outside his remit as Clerk of Parliament to write directly the President, particularly on such matters.

Mr Chokuda said the letter is a debasement of our morality and how low some people are willing to go to achieve their selfish ends and create unnecessary alarm and despondency.

Below is the letter:

  1. THIS FAKE NEWS THING HAS BECOME RIDICULOUS AND TRAGIC. WE ARE FACED WITH THIS VERY TROUBLING PHENOMENON WHICH HAS NOW CHEAPENED THE NOBLE ROLE OF JOURNALISM. A PEOPLE THAT WISH EACH OTHER DEATH IS INDEED A VERY SICK PEOPLE. I HOPE ZIMBABWEANS CAN RISE ABOVE THIS BACKWARD BEHAVIOUR. CHIWENGA WE WISH HIM WELL. PEOPLE SHOULD BE CAREFUL WHAT THEY WISH FOR. IF IT WASNT FOR CHIWENGAS BRAVERY ZIMBABWE TODAY WOULD BE UNDER THE RULE OF THAT THIEF GRACE MUGABE AND HER FAMILY. ZIMBOS BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.
