Mnangagwa disowns Tarirai David Mnangagwa

The Office of the President and Cabinet continues to view with consternation what clearly is a sustained media campaign by NewsDay and other syndicated online news outlets against His Excellency the President, Cde E.D. Mnangagwa, the First Lady, Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa, and children of the First Family.

This campaign, habitually hooked on gold cases and mining claim disputes, including those before the courts, is falsely meant to paint the First Family as involved or associated with alleged crimes and conflicts in the mining sector.

The latest in a series of such slurs and innuendos was a front-page story in today's (Thursday, 12th November. 2020) issue of NewsDay which baldly creates the impression TARIRAI DAVID MNANGAGWA is the President's biological son.

His Excellency would be most grateful if NewsDay can provide hint and the Nation with evidence of a filial relationship between hint and TARIRAI DAVID MNANGAGWA, in order to make good claims in their story.

In the absence or such evidence, the Office of the President and Cabinet demands an immediate retraction of the published and damaging falsehood, as well as an unconditional apology to the President, the First Lady and the First Family.

The Office further urges the media to refrain from publishing such malicious claims which have now become more of a norm, quite contrary to the standards and dictates of professional journalism.
