Another Baba Jukwa suspect joins police wanted list, brings total to 15


Police have named a suspect who is alleged to have been behind sourcing sponsorship for the Baba Jukwa project.
In a statement, Zimbabwe Republic Police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba confirmed they would like to question a Zimbabwean based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Chawarika Matongorere.

Matongorere is suspected to be responsible for the sourcing of funds for the Baba Jukwa project as well as also posting subversive material on social media.

Senior Assistant Commissioner Charamba said anyone with information on the exact location of Matongorere should contact Officer Commanding CID Law and Order Section Harare, on telephone number 777777 or National Complaints Desk at Police General Headquarters 703631 or any nearest police station.

Two suspects arrested by police in connection with the Baba Jukwa project Romeo Musemburi and Sunday Mail editor Edmund Kudzayi were granted bail early this month.

The police last month also listed Sunday Mail editor Edmund Kudzayi and his brother Phillip, Mxolisi Ncube, Walter Shoko, Samson Chifamba, George Chirakasha, Anomie Drew, Piniel Nhokodi and Sarudzai Florence as the other suspects.

Freelance journalists Zakes Moyo and Mkhululi Chimoio, were also added onto the police wanted list.  Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba said both journalists were based in Johannesburg, South Africa. This has brought the list of suspected Baba Jukwas to a staggering total of 15!
