Chief Mpakwa of Bikita born Clemence Mpakwa who is believed to be in his late fifties faces a lawsuit for adultery after it emerged that the woman who appeared in compromising positions with him on pictures that went viral on social media on Wednesday is married.
According to multiple reports, it has been established that the woman is Sekai Munzvovaniswa who stays with her husband in Duma Suburb at Nyika Growth Point in Bikita.
The pictures supposedly taken from Mpakwa’s car went viral four days ago sending social media into a frenzy with readers questioning local traditional leaders’ role as custodians of culture and the rampant abuse of power and cars provided to them by Government at the tax payers’ expense.
It has also been established that Mpakwa is only an acting chief who assumed that position following his father’s death three years ago.
His term of office as acting chief expired last year and he is only a headman but he has been refusing to let go of the chief’s residence and title.
However, in the pictures circulating on social media, Mpakwa is seen wearing a jacket pinned with a Chief’s ceremonial badge and another badge that has Zanu PF leader Emmerson Mnangagwa’s picture.
