DJ Munya, Wendall still held

HARARE - Two celebrities arrested last Friday on allegations of kidnapping, murder and fraud are yet to appear in court as police investigations are still underway.

Radio personality Munyaradzi Milimo aka DJ Munya was arrested last Friday on allegations of  kidnapping a Harare man Ortneal Tinashe Magorimbo who died on Sunday at a local hospital while pilot and former Big Brother Africa reality TV winner Wendall Parson is still held on charges of forging documents to demand a $25 000 insurance claim.

Police said yesterday DJ Munya and Parson were still assisting police with investigations.

Police spokesperson, Andrew Phiri told the Daily News that investigations are underway to establish circumstances regarding the kidnapping scandal and what could have caused the death of Magorimbo.

“He is still assisting police with investigations; we want to get to the root of the matter,” said Phiri.

Although police could not provide more details regarding the ongoing investigations, sources  yesterday said two more people have been picked up in connection with the kidnapping and murder case.

Sources said the popular Star FM DJ could have kidnapped the now deceased over an alleged affair with his wife.

“I can confirm that we have arrested Wendall Parson on allegations of lodging a false insurance claim with Alliance Insurance Company,” Phiri said. - Xolisani Ncube
