Dube gags media

HARARE - Cuthbert Dube, the ex-Premier Service Medical Aid Society (Psmas) chief executive, has sought to gag the media from reporting on his unceremonious exit, citing a variety of reasons and procedural flaws.

In a surprise warning late yesterday afternoon, the Zimbabwe Football Association president’s lawyers Venturas and Samkange suggested that the media risked multi-million dollar lawsuits if it kept writing on its client’s Psmas reign, salary and related matters.

“Our client has instructed us to act on numerous articles carried and published in your newspaper. These articles are defamatory, slanderous and false,” they said, adding the articles were penned “without due regard to the truth and accuracy of the information available to you”.

This comes as the Psmas saga has also sucked in presidential spokesman George Charamba.

Dube must just commit suicide, just like did Maurice Nagumbo did out of shame, rather than try to gag the media. George Charamba has admitted they stole, so what more do we need. Media must find a way of continuing to report, study the laws first to be prepared to justify their reportage.

Why does he want the media to stop writing stories about his outrageous salaries if he has nothing to hide?
