VIVACIOUS former Miss Tourism Zimbabwe, Samantha Ntombizodwa Tshuma of  Bulawayo is never off the  headlines-for embarrassing  reasons

She is accused by her Ghana based Indian businessman ex-lover of defrauding him of $10 000 cash and other materials.

The two meet on facebook social network.

The businessman is known as Sanjay and the two once spent three weeks together in Ghana last year.

While in Ghana, she entered into a business contract with a modeling agency in Ghana in December and promised to open an agency in Bulawayo.

After failing to deliver Sangjay made efforts to recover his money but Samantha claimed that she does not owe him a cent.

Schooled at Empandeni High, Samantha threatened Sangay with unspecified action if he ever came to Zimbabwe.

Responding to his Indian lover Samantha said " I cannot believe this really, so whenever you break up with someone you ask for your things"

" I met Samantha on Facebook , we had a mutual friend. We firstly started chatting on the site before we began calling each other. After which we fell in love" said  Sangjey on his part.

Sangjey says he bought Samantha air-ticket to Ghana after she said she could not afford one.

Last year, Samantha made headlines when she reportedly fell ill due to an disclosed disease.

Samantha has also been known to be a girl that does not keep her word and is constantly quoted fibbing about her life and career.

She once bragged that in the papers though she was struggling to get a driver's licence she preferred to be chauffeur driven.

Tshuma's reign as Miss Tourism Zimbabwe came to an end last  year after she handed over the crown to Harare model, Malaika Mushandu.

Samantha took up modelling as a career after she realised she had great potential in the industry after winning Miss Evelyn during her high school days.

She then went on to take the titles of Miss Zimbabwe Colleges, Miss Bulawayo Junior, Miss Culture Queen and Miss Tourism Zimbabwe, which was her 14th title
