SUNGURA music maestro Alick Macheso, through his lawyers, has written a letter of demand to The Herald requesting the paper to retract a “falsehood” in a story that claimed he [Macheso] admitted using his manhood to treat his child’s ailment.

SENIOR COURT REPORTER

Macheso’s demands followed a story by reporter Tawanda Marwizi published by The Herald on May 6 this year headlined Cheso admits using manhood on child.

In a letter of demand dated Wednesday May 7 2014, addressed to the Chief Editor of The Herald, Macheso also requested the paper to offer a public apology over the same story.

“You covered an interview with our client at our offices on the 5th day of May 2014 together with a reporter from NewsDay. However, you went on to publish falsehoods against the person of our client especially that you reported that our client admitted to have inserted his manhood into the minor’s mouth,” the lawyers from Mugiya & Macharaga Law Chambers wrote.

“We request that you retract that story with the same weight notice you gave it at the time you published it and offer a public apology. If that is not done, we have instructions to issue defamatory summons against you.”

On the date in question, the sungura musician is alleged to have admitted using his manhood to treat his first child of sunken fontanelle (nhova).

The reporter wrote: “Tafadzwa Mapako told our sister paper The Sunday Mail last week that Macheso ejaculated in their first child’s mouth as a way of treating the sunken fontanelle. She further claimed that she had stopped the musician from using the same method on their second child, which led to a misunderstanding that contributed to their divorce.”

“Macheso said he used a method known as kutara for treating the sunken fontanelle on the child. Kutara involves a father sliding his manhood from the face, left ear, right ear and the back of the head to the middle of the head.”

Macheso’s lawyer Norman Mugiya yesterday said he was still waiting for a response from The Herald in order to map the way forward.

  2. Baba shero nguva yareba tichingonzwa nyaya dzedivorce tokuzivai nenhau dzekuimba kwete dzekurapa nhova idzo kam bk kubasa kwenyu kwamuozivikanwa nako we want a new album nw nhasi uno ana franco vanonzi vakaburitsa imi muchingoenda mbiri ye nhova tipewo maserious we rally bhnd u so much

  3. Surely the herald should hav known better. Everyone knows that where a divorce is in progress the truth is very hard to come by

  4. Pawakamutora iye Tafadzwa, wakazviita HERO, akaparardza band rako ukabva watomuimbira kuti Tafadzwa nyarara. Why kunetsana neHerald. Macheso utikwanire ukawana nguva.

  5. This issue should be handled by police who are the professional in investigations. Tafadzwa should be encouraged or forced to report this issue so that it will be put to rest for ever. News papers can’t be Macheso everyday. People from Manicaland, some admitted that they use the same method to treat nhova. A friend of mine said he see no reason why people are making noise about this as it is their culture. Macheson should keep quiet because news papers can destroy especially if they have evidence and you think they don’t have, chibhendi chino parara kumberi kwazvo.

    • In Tanzania its their culture to kill albinos.Does that make it right just coz its their culture

    • Who from Manicaland said that? You seem to hide behind your statement saying “some from Manicaland….Ndiwe iwewe nonsense….

  6. The Herald story said Macheso used kutara and expalined what Kutara is done and that is what they said Macheso told them of course using his manhood. Tafadzwa is the one who said he inserted it in the kid’s mouth. I don’t like the Herald but I don’t see their case hear if I read it well. of course he admitted using his manhood but how could be the question. The Herald spoke of moving it from ear to ear, back to middle of head, Tafadzwa talked of inserting it in the mouth so he can sue Tafdzwa if it is about inserting.

    • The correct story was reported by the Newsday. In the Newsday story Macheso denied ever treating his children of nhova. He went on to say that even if he had elected to do it the shona method of kutara is acceptable.

      Now that is not admitting to the act. There were three parties at the meeting, the Newsday, Herald and Macheso. Why is the Herald’s story different from the others.

  7. Yah u have hit the nail right on its head, this is magnificent investigative and inspirational journalism, for once we have witnessed energetic, constructive and thought-provoking reporting from this wanning stable, please continue with this noble campaign even putting posters out there and engaging the police chefs also, it is very relevant. We passengers should take charge of lives when been driven by taking action mentioned here, the police should also establish hot-lines were passengers immediately report shenanigans that would have transpired at road-block, for instance you pass a block in a over-loaded vehicle but the officers doesn’t punish the driver or you report that the driver is speeding and nothing is done by officers manning the block, we passengers have to learn to be patient as well, sometimes we push these drivers like willy-nilly boarding an over-loaded vehicle etc. Its rather better to be late than never, to be safe than to be sorry!!! Ko what happened to name tags and force numbers on police uniforms, perhaps it can help in retarding corruption. Nevertheless remember not to forget to donate blood today, lets be blood doners folks!!!

  8. ….. duzvi remuroja wako matablespoon mairi katatu pazuva kwemazuva manomwe. Ichinge isati yapora tangisazve.

  9. zvimwe mupfuurwawo ana macheso.chiona nhova yamairapa muri vaviri yakuzivikanwa nenyika yese.kune vasati varapa nhova,musazozviedza.tinokunzwai!

  10. ko avo vari kungoti heee work from home work from home on the computer hadzisi mbavha here or team remiracle money?????? kana kuti iindeginisation yaVaMugabe?

    • True Annoyed. Knowing the nature of Zimbos…tikaona mukana todya takanyarara. We are a selfish lot….then woona umwe munhu achiti heee am making 80 chakati dollars per hour! Unobva watoshaya kuti zvikufamba sei!?

  11. Sir you shot yourself in the foot wega. Most of all you allowd the media too much into your personal life like many local musicians today. The media exposes you to fame and at the same time it can pull you down to the ground. Fighting the media is not the way to go cause it will worsen the situation. You spend thousands of dollars on posters and thats all we need mafans. Toda kuziva where your shows are, go there and enjoy chete ndozvatoda. Long live Mberikwazvo and stop dinning nemedia. Be like late Dembo, get on stage and give your best shot. Zveprivate live dzenyu chengetai muhapwa.

  12. I think the Herald is not at fault here. Macheso must sue his former wife Fortunate aka-Tafadzwa 4 falsely informing the media about this issue.

  13. Media whether electronic or print inovaka uye inoputsa so shut up Macheso and lock up your caterpillar (dora), kwete bulldozer or else huya titandare tese kuno kuChikulaz! Pavaikushambadza nezvakanaka wakambochema here? Rega zvinyatsotyisa, hanti wakapa wega version yako yekutara here nekadora kako?

  14. macheso chinyarara nyaya yako uconcentrate ne maintanance yako, malawyers aya ari kuda kukupedzawo nerimwe rutivi. Garazviya makazoenda here kuParternity test

  15. ZVAMACHESO NDIZVO HAZVO ASI MAKAMBOONAO HERE THE DIRTINESS UNDER OUR VERY OWN ZRP CAPS? YOU CAN HARDLY SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MASKED ARMED ROBBER AND OUR POLICE DETAILS, VESE VANENGE VAKAVHARA KUMESO. YOU CAN HARDLY IDENTIFY THE COP THAT WRONGED YOU BECAUSE HIS/HER FACE WOULD BE COVERED WITH THAT CAP. IF WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT DEALING WITH CORRUPTION THEN THE CAP/DARK GLASSES SHOULD BE BANNED AND BE REPLACED WITH BARRETTS, JUST LIKE WITH OUR SOLDIERS. NENAPHONE AVAKO AYA, IT WILL BE VERY EASY TO TAKE VIDEOS OF DAYLIGHT CURRUPTION.
