Sasa , when he was  Herald Deputy Editor got into trouble after getting involved with Roselyn Sachiti(32) in 2014 just before his appointment as  acting Sunday Mail editor.

The husband to Herald Features writer Roselyn Sachiti, Francis Madziva, a former Dynamos and Sporting Lions Football Club player went to Herald House and caused a scene after discovering inappropriate texts in his wife’s phone .The messages were from Sasa.

The husband went straight to Sasa’s, then boss Caesar Zvayi to express his displeasure .Zvayi manhandled Madziva while trying to cool tempers.

“Caesar Zvayi is the one who handled the hot scandal and kept it under the wraps”, a close at Zimpapers said.

Francis and Roselyn  two went on separation after the incident, and it’s not clear if they are back together. However, Francis’s Facebook page says the two are married with one child.

Reports of this nature are not new at the Herald.In 2009, there were reports of sexual harassment and nepotism at Zimpapers. There revelations were made public in a report by a parliamentary committee on transport and communications which was looking at the state of Zimbabwe’s public media.

In 2005, Caesar Zvayi, the former geography teacher assaulted a female journalist, Thelma Chikwanha in the newsroom for which he was arrested and paid an admission of guilt fine. In January 2007, the High Court ordered him to pay damages to Chikwanha after she sued him for the assault.

In 2009 Zvayi, a former political editor faced an internal enquiry into an alleged sexual harassment of a female colleague, Thelma Chikwanha which resulted in him being given a final warning.

Efforts to get comments from Francis Madziva, Mabasa Sasa and Caesar Zvayi were fruitless as their mobile phones wen’t answered.

Sachiti is currently one of the 30 young Zimbabwean participants in this year’s edition of the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders (YALI) in the US.
