The Deputy Minister of Information, Dr Energy Mutodi has distanced himself from a twitter handle which had earlier commented on the beauty of advocate Fadzayi Mahere.
Advocate Mahere is the Secretary of Education in the opposition MDC led by advocate Nelson Chamisa. The account Hon. Dr Energy Mutodi (PhD) @Tamuka19722659 had commented on Mahere’s photo saying:
We as ZANU PF we appreciate what is good and what is beautiful even tho we have our differences uye isu hatizi mhandu (and we are not sellouts/enemies). You are gorgeous Adv.
Mutodi, however, said that the account is being managed by someone, Tamuka. The former musician said:
Beware of fake Twitter accounts. Before reading & believing a Twitter message, check the account. A Twitter account like the one pictured below operated by @tamuka.. is fake. It has been created by bogus characters to publish fake messages.
A number of senior government officials has claimed to be victims of social media abuse. Only recently, it was Chief Fortune Charumbira and former advisor to President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Ambassador Christopher Mutsvangwa.
