“Ndirikutsvagawo h… iri rakatiza nemari dzevanhu raimbogara paEarlside kumaAvenues pliz kana pane ane ruzivo help anonzi Tatenda Ketero from Goromonzi,” reads the message circulating on social media.
Tatenda confirmed her differences with Sherz saying the posting of the issue on social media was out of jealousy. “I was shocked by my friend’s decision to publish our issues on mvengemvenge and threats to take it to the media,” said Ketero.
“It is true that I had her money but I left Earlside hotel in a hurry since my lover was paying lobola ( ‘Lobola’ is an African practice that involves providing payment, either in cash or heads of cattle, from the prospective groom’s family to the parents of the prospective bride for customary marriage ) the following day. She was disturbed to hear that my lover was to pay lobola and posting on social media was out of jealousy to force my husband to change his decision of taking me as his wife.
“I confronted her over it and I came to a decision that I will not give her the money anymore because of tarnishing my image. Taitamba maround ema 100 dollars zvechokwadi asi mumwe wangu uyu akarwadziwa asi vamwe ndakavapa mari dzavo iye yake handisikumupa, ” said Ketero.

“Takawirirana kupanana maround eUS$100 tiri vatatu pasvondo saka iye ndiye akatanga kupihwa kwava kutiza asina kupavamwe. “I used to share a room with her and I am under pressure from fellow hookers and the people who supplied her with fashion clothes and a colour television set.
“She is reported to have relocated from Kuwadzana to Waterfalls and I am being tormented by duped people daily that is why I decided to search for her through social media,” said Sherz.
