Radio and online television personality Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa has been ordered by a High Court judge to publicly apologise to Harare businessman Tafadzwa Musarara after she lied on twitter that she never invited him to her ZimFM Stereo radio current affairs programme The Platform.

This was after Musarara had threatened her with a $200, 000 law suit if she did not publicly apologise. Parirenyatwa, however, approached Musarara and pleaded with him not to cause her to publicly apologise claiming it would yield public rage against her.

Justice Jester Charewa gave Ruvheneko seven days to publicly apologise after she agreed that the radio management of which she was part resolved to invite Musarara to the programme and she extended the invitation to him.  

On her twitter account dubbed @RuvhenekoP, she had posted, “Hello @jjwhitlaw please be very clear that I did not invite Tafadzwa Musarara. He was present, but not at my invitation.”

The programme was aired live on the 19th May in 2016 with another guest being Pastor Evan Mawarire.

Musarara is the current chairperson of Grain Millers Association of Zimbabwe, and he was attacked by listeners for his position on the debate with the help of the presenter because he differed with Mawarire.

Ruvheneko now says she regrets posting that twitter statement as it created a false impression that Musarara was an uninvited guest.

“As a journalist I have a duty to protect all my guests, which includes Mr Musarara regardless of their divergent views,” she said.
