OPPOSITION Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) spokesperson Fadzai Mahere has demanded US$100,000 in damages over allegations she had an affair with a married man which she denied.
The allegations were made by freelance writer Edmund Kudzai, prompting Mahere to demand a retraction, failing which she would sue for damages.
However, Kudzayi insisted that there “will be no retraction; the story is factual and much more is coming”.
Mahere’s lawyers consequently filed a defamation claim with the High Court in Harare last Friday.
Commenting on the development, Kudzayi said on Twitter Monday; “She (Mahere) won’t get a cent.”
Today I received summons from adulteress, CCC spokesperson, @advocatemahere claiming US$100k in alleged defamation damages.
She won’t get a cent.
The available evidence is impeccable, unimpeachable and thus compelling. 1/2 pic.twitter.com/qCtk5R6ELz
