HARARE – Wife of the late Zanu PF Member of Parliament (MP) for Kadoma Central Ishmael Mutema is reportedly running a brothel at her residential property in Kadoma.
The late Mutema was also Chief Ziki of Masvingo and popularly known as “Choo”.
The lodge, Guta Ravatema popularly known as KwaMai Choo, is housing more than 20 commercial sex workers under the guise that they are lodge workers.
Sources claim the late MP’s wife, Tambudzai is facing financial challenges since her husband passed away and the lodge is the only family business providing income.
Tambudzai denied operating a brothel. She said there was nothing of that sort happening at her lodge.
“There are no sex workers, that is a lie and you will never see anything like that,” she said.
“I have a status to keep. I want to be an MP so I would not tolerate that because my husband is the one who ordered prostitutes to be arrested in Kadoma so why would I do that?”
The lodge, situated in Kadoma has become a “talk of the town” as top-of-the-range vehicles are seen parked at the lodge, with well-heeled people coming to the lodge soliciting for sexual pleasure.
When the Daily News crew visited the place, we witnessed some of the activities, as women charged $5 per-hour.
Some hookers were seen during the day roaming around the vicinity of the lodge half naked and the bulk of them were also seen at night.
The flocking of sex worker into Kadoma popularly known as the “City of Gold” has been catalysed by illegal gold panners who when they have cash, flock into clubs looking for sex.
Tambudzai threatened this reporter with legal action if he wrote the story.
“If you write the story I will go to The Herald and say that they are taking advantage of me because I am a widow. I do not promote anything, I just keep cool (sic),” she said, adding that the lodge was there but was not a prostitution hub.
She was said to be selling her late husband’s Cadillac vehicle so as to cater for the needs of her family.
