CHIREDZI - Zanu PF Ward 2 candidate for the by-elections slated for August 5, 2017, has been embroiled in a fight for allegedly dating a married police woman stationed at Chiredzi Police Station.
Obert Ngwenya was reportedly stoned while at BancABC branch in town last week by one George Marumbini who accused him of having an affair with his wife.
When contacted for comment, Ngwenya said confirmed the fracas but deneied allegations that he was dating Memory Marumbini, wife to George Marumbini, claiming that it was a smear campaign by party rivals who were not happy with his success at the primaries.
"Marumbini is accusing me for dating his wife. I was stoned at BancABC by Marumbini after he had received an anonymous call alleging me to be dating his wife," said Ngwenya.
"As we head towards our ward 2 by-election, it seems more enemies than friends are growing and they are trying to bring me down. They realised that I have many supporters in the camp and they are trying to create bad blood between me and police officers," he added.
However, Marumbini sternly refused to give his side of the story, choosing to simply say it was a family matter which he could discuss only with his close relatives.
"I can't discuss this issue with people who are not my family members, thank you," said Marumbini.politics
