The Secretary for Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Mr George Charamba confirmed yesterday that Cde Mutasa was still out of the country, contrary to claims made by Herald Editor Caesar Zvayi.
Zvayi issued the following statement:
In The Herald of December 27 we erroneously published a story on our front page that said former zanu-pf secretary for administration Cde Didymus Mutasa, who has been India over the past month, had reportedly come back into the country.It has since been established that he is still in India where his wife is undergoing treatment,contrary to claims by our sources that they had seen him at his Rusape homestead on Christmas Eve.
Any inconvenience caused is sincerely regretted.
Mutasa yesterday accused the Herald of lying arguing that he was still out of the country.
