Self exiled Professor Jonathan Moyo has denied sexually abusing former top model Sipho Mazibuko eleven years ago.
Addressing the issue in a long twitter thread, Moyo said r_ape accusations levelled against him are false.
“Hatred Your story alleges that Mrs Sipho Mazibuko claims in a Facebook post that I “RAPED” her 11 years ago. Her attached Facebook post that I’ve seen alleges that I “SEXUALLY ABUSED” her, which I categorically & emphatically deny. You’ve elevated her “sexual abuse” claims to RAPE!”
Jonathan said he has never been engaged by any police officer on these “false and outrageous allegations.”
“And Hatred, you refer to a missing @PoliceZimbabwe report. At no time in my life did any @PoliceZimbabwe officer anywhere in Zimbabwe engage me on these false and outrageous allegations.”
Moyo who acknowledged spending time with Mazibuko said: “I never had any direct or indirect involvement with Mrs Mazibuko’s psychiatric care!”
“I empathise with Sipho Mazibuko’s situation. It’s outrageous for you Hatred & your handlers to exploit it this way. For the record, I never spent a second of my life with Sipho Mazibuko alone. Specifically I was not a minister 11 years ago & I never saw nor spoke to her then!”, he wrote.
1/9 Dear Hatred Zenenga
Hatred, I refer to your scurrilously defamatory story in the @HeraldZimbabwe today (18 January 2021) in which you allege that I face rape accusations. I take your scandalously false allegations seriously!https://t.co/Xxylk3pKMT pic.twitter.com/KPVrb3ILf5
