Chiyangwa Sues Nehanda Radio
Flamboyant businessman Philip Chiyangwa is seeking permission to electronically serve UK-based Zimbabwe-linked site Nehanda Radio with papers, suing them for $250 million.
Chiyangwa accuses Nehanda Radio of defamation over various articles and programmes portraying him as an HIV-infected womaniser.
Chiyangwa contests those claims and says he has HIV tests to prove this true.
He also took exception to the publication painting him as a corrupt businessman. The lawsuit is against Lance Guma, the managing editor of Nehanda Radio.
Nehanda Radio says it is has never claimed that Chiyangwa was HIV-positive nor did it claim that Chiyangwa had forcibly had sex with Lindsey Ndlovu adding:
Nehanda Radio is based in the United Kingdom and any lawsuit filed at the High Court in Zimbabwe is a silly publicity stunt. Chiyangwa knows he has a clumsy case that is why he is deliberately approaching a court with no jurisdiction over us.
It claims it has proof the alleged womanising by Chiyangwa as well as supposed corrupt business practices.
This is going to be fun.
