HARARE socialite, Jackie Ngarande has dismissed as rumours media reports that she was involved in a relationship with Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube.

In a press statement, she said the allegations are malicious, unfounded and an attempt to tarnish the reputation of those mentioned.

“I do not have a relationship with the said minister either personally or professionally, and like any other citizen of Zimbabwe, l have only read about him in the newspapers due to the nature of his work,” she said.

“I would like to urge the purveyors of these falsehoods to desist from such hideous acts as they negatively impact on families. They strain relationships and in the process destroy careers.”

Press Statement by Jackie Ngarande regarding recent social media reports

Ref: Jacqueline Tinovimbika Ngarande Press Statement: For Immediate release

This press statement is with reference to news stories that widely circulated on social media and online publications concerning an alleged relationship/affair between myself and a certain minister of the Government of Zimbabwe.

These allegations are malicious, unfounded and an attempt to damage my image and reputation and also to tarnish the image and reputation of all those mentioned in the stories including my long time friend Miss P Nare.

I do not have a relationship with the said minister either personally or professionally, and like any other citizen of Zimbabwe, l have only read about him in the newspapers due to the nature of his work.

I would like to urge the purveyors of these falsehoods to desist from such hideous acts as they negatively impact on families. They strain relationships and in the process destroy careers.

I have since sought legal advice from lawyers concerning this unfortunate incident with a view to stop the circulation of such hurtful lies and to bring the perpetrators of fake news to book.

Yours Sincerely
Jacqueline Tinovimbika Ngarande
