"Be Careful Not To Make Muvevi A Legend", Mangwana Tells Media

The permanent secretary of the Ministry of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Nick Mangwana, has warned the media against inadvertently making suspected murderer Jaison Muvevi a cult hero.

Mangwana was commenting on a tweet by a local tabloid showing pictures of Muvevi “in happier times”.

Mangwana said the media should be sensitive to the families of the people who were allegedly shot dead by Muvevi. He said:

I think the Media has to be careful about the way they are covering this story.

There is a risk of creating a celebrity or folk hero out of a possible cold-blooded, sociopathic killer.

There are families whose lives have been irreversibly damaged by his actions. Be sensitive to them.

Muvevi was arrested on Monday, 16 January for allegedly killing three people in Hwedza on 13 January.

His alleged victims were Chrispen Kanerusine (48) of Hwedza, Hwedza officer-in-charge Inspector Maxwell Hove (43) and 27-year-old Munashe Majani, who was a bartender at Ruzema Bottle Store, Mukamba Business Centre, Hwedza.

He has also been charged with the murder of Nyarai Round (33) of Domboshava.

Police are now investigating leads linking the ex-detective to six other murder cases that took place in and around Harare and Chitungwiza over the past three years.

That is the type of role model our children have been exposed to. The mbingas and people with unexplainable riches, people who cannot explain or teach anyone how they got where they are or what they have.

Nick Mangwana and the whole zanu Pf system should feel the same for us Zimbabwe. Actually Zanu Pf should stop making us destitutes in our own country, people have fled Zimbabwe to South Africa where they are being killed day and night. If Mangwana was so sincere with us, he should simply abandon the ruthless zanu Pf party.

Dear Mr Mangwana, it is not social media which have glorified Muvhevhi into a celebrity or a hero of the moment, it is the the incompetence of our zrp members which have shown us who truly a hero is between Muvevi and zrp. For you own information, Muvhevhi was alone when he was confronted by the police men and the police were four against one man Muvevi. But he managed to gun them down and took away their guns. A few of zrp who survived the attack had to run away for their dear lives, leaving their own station chief in the hands of an angry Muvevi. Your zrp only discovered that their government has had provided them with toy guns instead of real guns. So please let the public enjoy the drama and show. Ini hangu ndongofarira party yekuti Muvhevhi is eager to kill all fake profets.

konistrakitivhu kritisizimu zvinorevei chizukuru?


I agree with Mr Nick Mangwana that we must not give too much praise to Muvevi because relatives of the murder victims are still moaning the deaths of their relatives.

However, with due respect, Mr Mangwana must realise that the way convict Jaison Muvevi committed the crimes is filmaking material. Imagine how he murdered a prophet in the presence of his congregants, how went on to murder an Officer in Charge of a Police Station at at an impromptu roadblock. It is interesting to note how he evaded arrest from Wedza to Manicaland, to the Zimbabwe/Mozambique border and eventually into Mozambique where he was arrested by Mozambique Police with the assistance of some locals.



Yours faithfully

People are not saying what they are saying because of insensitivity We are just saying the likes of Mangwana are not qualified to make such comments because of their blatant double-standards We are mourning with the people who lost their loved ones as much as we are mourning with the loved ones of the likes of Blessing Ali What we heard after the murder of Blessing Ali was shocking Some Zanu Pf stalwarts were even saying Ali was a prostitute and her murder was a prostitution deal which gone wrong Mangwana and company were dead silent I totally agree with what he said but he must be consistent

Jason Muvevi is not a legend but is infamous. when you are known for doing bad things you are infamous. Just like Hitler. What committed heinous crimes and from the looks of it, these 3 horrific murders are not the only ones. What is most chilling is that such a psychopath appears in a group picture at state house with the Head of State.
