More Baba Jukwa suspects named

HARARE - Police are hunting for two more people suspected to be behind the shadowy Facebook character and blogger “Baba Jukwa.”

The blogger launched a cyber war targeting President Robert Mugabe, government ministers, senior government officials and security chiefs ahead of last year's elections, and the State claims the Sunday Mail editor Edmund Kudzayi was the kingpin behind the enigmatic character.

Kudzayi has been granted bail, and awaits trial.

Police spokesperson Charity Charamba said in a statement yesterday that they were looking for two Zimbabweans based in South Africa, in connection with the administration of Baba Jukwa's Facebook page, which has over 400 000 followers.

“The Zimbabwe Republic Police is keen to interview Zakes Moyo and Mkhululi Chimoio in connection with the administration of Baba Jukwa Facebook page and posting subversive material,” Charamba’s statement said.

I DONT UNDERSTAND THIS. IF MAI JUKWA IS LEGAL AND STILL RUNNING, WITH ALL THE DRIVEL IT PUBLISHES, WHY SHOULD BABA JUKWA BE ILLEGAL, DESPITE THE PLATFORM ON WHICH IT WAS PUBLISHED??? ARE YOU SAYING SOME PEOPLE CAN DENIGRATE OTHERS WITH IMPUNITY, AND YET THOSE OTHERS CANNOT DENIGRATE THE SOME PEOPLE???? WHAT A MESS!!!!!

Does this Baba Jukwa bring on the table for the rest of Zimbabweans. Real cases like Obert Mpofu involved in diamonf scandals should have precedence than this Jukwa thing.This is why Obert has the temerity of giving Masimirembwa a job.They know the scandals.Jonathan Moyo,Emmmerson Mnangagwa and Tendai Biti issues are cases of concern than jukwa.I am sure the three had something to do with the death of Morgan Tsvangirayi s wife

With the way this saga is going they may as well target everyone who 'liked' the page. As BJ himself once posted 'Baba Jukwa is everyone' - we probably need to invest in more prisons!

This Baba Jukwa is just a waste of time and a ploy to confuse Zimbos and distract them from the bread and butter issues that are affecting Zimbabwe. surely it is a Zanu PF internal issue that they should solve on their own but are busy abusing national resources. This shows that Mugabe and Zanu PF have the country in their puims and can do whatever they want but the biggest problem is us the Zimbos for we are giving them the opportunity to take us for a ride because of our cowardice. Suffer will continue if we do not wake up in this deep slumber.
