Zimpapers Television Network (ZTN) television star who is also a former H Metro journalist Robert Mukondiwa has arrived at the Harare Magistrates Court where he is facing charges of sodomising an 18-year-old man.
Mukondiwa arrived in the company of his lawyer and was seen trying to avoid photographers.
Details of the charges are expected to be shortly read in court. ZTN, which has been broadcasting online, was awarded a free-to-air television licence last November.
This is not the first time Mukondiwa, a former deputy editor of the tabloid H-Metro, has been caught in homosexual acts.
Former president Robert Mugabe at one time got angry after Mukondiwa was caught entertaining a male hooker during a Presidential trip to Windhoek, Namibia. in 2011.
While in Windhoek, Mukondiwa, one of the finest journalists in the country, reportedly shared a room with an intelligence operative to mitigate the costs. But while the CIO operative was away, Mukondiwa hired a male g_ay hooker for a good time, Nehanda Radio reports.
But the CIO operative returned earlier than anticipated and walked in on the two while they were humping. He reportedly alerted Mugabe’s spokesman George Charamba. The matter was said to have reached Mugabe’s ears, who blew his top.
He reportedly summoned Information minister Webster Shamu about the matter and enquired why he had approved a homose_xual to cover his trip when he knew his revulsion against gays.
Shamu was said to have tried to protect him, but Mugabe reportedly said it was not the first time such a case had been brought to his attention. He reportedly demanded to know who was protecting Mukondiwa at Zimpapers and why.
