ZVISHAVANE – A journalist who alleged that MDC T leader Morgan Tsvangirai is involved in an affair with party Senator for Zvishavane, Lillian Timveos has been arrested for defying a High Court order.
John Chimunhu who reports for an online publication, Daily Now was picked up by Police on June 20, 2017 after Timveos reported him for defying a High Court order which barred him from further reporting on the alleged sex scandal.
Chimunhu allegedly reported that Timveos who is a married woman got a senior post in the party because she was in a relationship with Tsvangirai and the two would book at a Harare lodge for sex. According to court documents, Chimunhu further alleged that the Senator's marriage to prominent Zvishavane businessman Michael Timveos was on the rocks because of the alleged relationship.
"The MDC-T senator's marriage to Cypriot gold dealer Michael Timveos has virtually collapsed as a result of the scandal," wrote Chimunhu in Daily Now.
In 2016, Timveos approached the High Court with a $2,5m defamation lawsuit against Chimunhu and Daily Now and the High Court granted an order stopping any further publication of the alleged sex scandals. Chimunhu is however, alleged to have continued publishing reports and this saw Timvious reporting him for contempt of court.
Chimunhu has since appeared before Zvishavane Magistrate Shepherd Munjanja after Police raided the freelance reporter's home in Zvishane and searched the place before making the arrest. Published stories were produced as exhibits in court.
Meanwhile Timveous went on a diatribe on Face Book calling Chimunhu's all sorts of names.
"John Chimunhu the rogue writer from Mandava ward 3. the case is going to court on monday i hope he gets locked up in jail for life. I wonder if there are computers in jail shit chaiyo nxaaaaa. Kutsvaga mari nedemo," fumed Timveos in a Facebook posting.
