$40,000us for Mnangagwa Poisoning hogwash,
Speculation says its Energy Mutodi Vs Sydney Sekeramayi and David Parirenyatwa, What Happened?
Cabinet ministers Sydney Sekeramayi and David Parirenyatwa have written to Energy Mutodi
indicating their intention to sue the controversial businessman for sensationally claiming that
they were behind the alleged poisoning of Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Mutodi claimed on his Facebook wall last week that Defence minister Sekeramayi and Health
and Child Care minister Parirenyatwa, who are both medical doctors, were behind the
alleged poisoning of Mnangagwa in Gwanda last month.
In a letter dated August 30, 2017, the two senior government officials wrote through
their lawyers that Mutodi should remove the offending post from his Facebook timeline;
retract his statement and pay defamation damages to the tune of $20 000 to each one of them.
Apart from the sum of $40 000, Mutodi has been instructed to post an apology on Facebook
and also publish it in two newspapers. But Mutodi came out guns blazing yesterday,
saying the Burden was on Sekeramayi and Parirenyatwa to prove their innocence first.
