Piniel Nhokodi, a man from Chiredzi who was recently implicated in the ongoing sensitive Baba Jukwa Facebook saga has gone missing after his name appeared in the Press among those wanted by Police over the saga.
Nhokodi works for Zesa in Chiredzi and sources and workmates have told The News Crew that Nhokodi disappeared together with his family, the day his name appeared in the Press alongside other wanted persons.
News reporters gathered that Nhokodi is employed as stores personnel at Zesa. Press reports indicate that he is wanted as one of the suspected administrators of Baba Jukwa, a facebook character that splashed sensitive Government information on the social networks.
Some workmates told The News Crew that Nhokodi applied for an emergency leave at work the same day he realised that his name was in the Press and he deserted his house the same day.
He is not communicating with anyone as his mobile phone has not been reachable since the day he went missing. He however, seems to be receiving Whatsapp chats although he is does not responding to any.
Friends and workmates said that Nhokodi was a very quiet man who mind his own business and they are even surprised why he is being label as a suspect in such a sensitive matter.
Other sources said that he did not have any Information Technology(IT) background as he was just a Stoles personal and she is surprise if its real that he could administrate a facebook account mostly which was so sensitive and illegal.
"We are all surprised as his friends and workmates because Nhokodi was a quiet and reserved man who did not even have an IT background but maybe if he is a suspected because he might have commented on the account, but as of the administrations of the account we doubt that very much," said sources who talked to this publication.
All those who talked to news reporters said that Nhokodi might have just panicked and run since the issue is sensitive.
In another similar case and in 2008 re-run election Dumisani Hapazadi who was a ZESA employee also disappeared at work after two gentle man came and asked him to walk them out of ZESA premises. It is alleged that Hapazadi took his car and left with the two gentle man and upto date no one knows where he is or his body.
