MZEMBI’S WIFE IN NASTY FIGHT | The Minister of Tourism, Walter Mzembi’s wife, Barbara has demanded $100 000 from former sponsors, Big Time Strategic Group.
She is angry after she was accused of misusing funds for the Miss Tourism Zimbabwe pageant. But Big Time has told her there would be no money or apology coming her way. The case is now set to be settled in court.
Mzembi’s lawyers have written to Big Time saying : “We are instructed to demand, as we hereby do, the sum of one hundred thousand United States dollars (US$100 000) as damages for defamation rising out of the publication of an article entitled ‘Sponsor dumps Miss Tourism for Miss World Zim’. . . ”.
Big Time Strategic Group lawyers wrote back :“Our client is not going to pay to yours the amount of one hundred thousand United States dollars (US$100 000) as demanded or any sum at all. Any action that yours might take against ours will be defended.”
