Tinashe Mugabe Challenges Closure Of TV Paternity Show, The Closure DNA

Tinashe Mugabe Challenges Closure Of TV Paternity Show, The Closure DNA

The principal consultant at Global Parentage Services, trading as Global DNA Zimbabwe, Tinashe Mugabe, has approached the High Court to challenge the decision by the Health Professions Authority Zimbabwe (HPAZ) to shut down his company.

The Closure DNA is a DNA paternity show where fathers unsure about the paternity of their children get a public reveal of the DNA test results.

The regulatory authority, HPAZ, ordered the closure of The Closure DNA in September after declaring that Mugabe and his company had violated conditions it had set.

One of the conditions was a requirement that the company should employ a professional laboratory scientist at all times.

HPAZ said Mugabe was neither qualified nor competent to issue DNA test results.

Mugabe is now suing the HPAZ and the Medical Laboratory and Clinical Scientists Council Zimbabwe (MCAZ) challenging the suspension of his operations and closure of his offices.

He is denying that his company is a medical one requiring regulation by HPAZ, insisting that he only registered with them for compliance in order to operate freely.

Mugabe said after he started his operations in the business of DNA testing he was approached by HPAZ which advised him to register with them.

As part of the conditions, Global DNA was informed to employ a laboratory scientist and was also registered under MCAZ as a collection site.

He said he complied with the directives of registration until his scientist resigned from her job.

Mugabe said their centre is only a collection site and samples are sent out of Zimbabwe for testing before results are returned to Zimbabwe.

He insists that his company does not in any way “diagnose, treat, mitigate or prevent illness, injury or disability, abnormal, physical or mental state or the symptoms in human beings as defined by the Health Professions Act.”

He said his business does not in any way fall within the definition of a health institution as defined by the Act.

Mugabe said employing a laboratory scientist does not mean Global DNA was now a medical facility and maintains it is not necessary or mandated.

In this regard, he is seeking a declaratory that the HPAZ cannot at law order the closure of his offices because Global DNA is not a health institution. Through his lawyers Maunga Maanda and Associates, Mugabe said:

Global DNA Zimbabwe had a legitimate expectation of being heard before an adverse decision was made against it.

It thus has an interest in the matter before this honourable court in that its business has been suspended unlawfully, with great loss to its income and the benefit it has brought to users of its services.

The matter is pending.

Let these entities who want Tinashe out get those who they think are proper to do DNA testing be given a mandate and a law to test each and every child born in Zimbabwe for free so that noone in the country doubts the paternity of any child. Until such a law gets into operation, let T-man help with paternity issues.

HPAZ and MCAZ are being used by feminist groups, Tinashe's show provided peace of mind and closure to men who would have been cheated on by their wives which resulted in some women getting divorced or left in the cold after the result turned out to be negative. This angered feminist who would prefer a man raising his lover's child as opposed to having the wife divorced for cheating and getting pregnant by another men so they sought to have Tinashe's show regulated out and then they approached HPAZ and MCAZ.

Hey!!!!. Tinashe is doing a good job on these cheaters. Maybe is the father who is being told by his girlfriend or wife that this baby is not yours, Tinashe clarifies and the answer comes out

If it comes to a lady forcing a boyfriend to take what does not belong to him, Tinashe clarifies.
So where is his problem there ?

Can we say Tinashe is wrong there?

Tinashe doesn't go door by door requesting people to be tested to get the reality on their children but the fetches him and give him what to do but Tinashe doesn't fake, hate or lie to his guests.

He only lean on the truth and does not hesitate to cough out the truth.

Let Tinashe do his best.
He is not wrong.
TAKUVARA NEKURERESWA VANA VASIRI VEDU MUDZIMBA UMU.

THIS IS HAPPENING TO EVERYBODY, THAT YOUR WIFE CHEATS YOU AT NEARLY 93% OF 3 YRS.

THIS DNA IS NOT FOR HUMAN BEINGS ONLY, EVEN LIVESTOCK, PETS AND POLUTRY.

IF YOU HAVE SOME DISAGREEMENTS ON LIVESTOCK, POLUTRY AND ETC, JUST GO TO HIS DNA OFFICES, YOU WILL BE ATTENDED.
WE MUSTN'T BE JEALOUS ON SOMEBODY'S JOB.

TINASHE IS OK LEAVE IN PEACE TAPOTA.

I agree with you. It's just a ploy to silence him. If he was ilegally testing samples it would make sense to close the company. Not this.
There are other agendas for fighting him and closing the show. Also, people who were informed were doing so with full knowledge. A lot of man are raising kids that aren't theirs and some people don't want that foul smelling armpit exposed.
