POPULAR gospel musician Togarepi Chivaviro has become a target of social media mischief with faceless characters peddling claims of sexual misconduct against him.
He had to address the issue on a public platform, Facebook where it all begun with a post being made that he had been caught intimate with a congregant.
Writing on his pages, he said such mischief will not interfere with his ministerial work and his marriage, describing it as mischief and works of hate.
The post came at a time where a separate WhatsApp conversation circulated whereby the preacher-cum-musician was alledgedly exchanging nude pictures with another woman.
He also spoke on the impact of such fake news on people’s lives.
“Do people realise the impact of just posting something that’s not there over someone? This mischief maker is oblivious of the fact that I have not been in Africa this year, somebody jokes with things like this! It’s shocking this comes same day with another separate issue of WhatsApp conversations with obviously a downloaded pic of a faceless somebody.
“Why are people so heartless and ruthless? Anyway we don’t stop ministering the gospel because of such, never! And rudo rwemumba medu chairwo rwapfuura nzizi nemakomo akawanda, we can’t be affected so much by such, tichiri tese imiwee,” he wrote.
He said the law will take its course in dealing with the culprits behind the attack and that he is also praying for them to repent.
