HARARE – The father of Chantelle Muteswa, the feuding ex-girlfriend of a millionaire businessman, Frank Buyanga, issued an apparent death threat against the property tycoon this week, warning him: “Your days are numbered.”
The chilling message was left on Buyanga’s Facebook page on Thursday.
Buyanga and ex-flame Chantelle are locked in a bitter court fight over the custody of their five-year-old son.
Lawrence Muteswa left the warning on Buyanga’s Facebook page which is followed by over 600,000 people.
The 40-year-old Buyanga had commented on a post by one of his companies, The Cape Mint, which carried a video of a recent donation of food parcels to the citizens of the Kingdom of eSwatini.
Invoking the late American civil rights activist Maya Angelou, Buyanga wrote: “When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”
Chantelle’s father had no charitable intentions, however, when he reacted to Buyanga’s post with the terse warning.
In another post, Muteswa railed: “Bring back Daniel and give back those houses you stole.”
The reference to houses is thought to be connected to a property dispute pitting Buyanga’s company, Hamilton Properties, and dozens of homeowners who forfeited their houses after defaulting on huge loans borrowed from the company. The dispute is in the courts.
Another dispute currently before the courts pits Buyanga and Muteswa, after the latter allegedly sold a house to the African Medallion Group millionaire which he had also used as surety to cover a debt with Delta Beverages.
Buyanga claimed in a letter to Interpol earlier this month that his child custody battle had been hijacked by President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his family, apparently to fix him for his perceived financial backing of the ambitious Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.
The businessman has also claimed in court documents that Mnangagwa’s son, Collins, was in a relationship with Chantelle.
Collins and Chantelle have both denied the relationship. Chantelle also denied that she was getting financial backing from the Mnangagwas, although admitting visiting first lady Auxillia Mnangagwa at State House.
Buyanga, who lives in Sandton, South Africa, currently has custody of their son. A court last month ordered him to surrender custody to Muteswa pending the finalization of her Supreme Court bid to overturn a ruling of the High Court granting both parents joint custody and guardianship. Buyanga, meanwhile, has also gone to the Supreme Court fighting the order giving him 48 hours to return the child.
