SOCIAL media users have expressed different views following the arrest and denial of bail for controversial businessman Wicknell Chivayo.
Chivayo is in remand prison facing fraud and money laundering charges over the $5 million he got from Zimbabwe Power Company for the Gwanda solar power project.
Chivayo, who is also believed to be a close associate of former President Mugabe’s family, as he has posted different pictures on social media with the Former First Lady Grace Mugabe and her sons, got sympathy from Chatunga Mugabe.
Chatunga twitted ‘Free My Bro Wicknell!
However social media is awash with users who are celebrating the arrest.
He’ll be out before ED’s inauguration. @tapiwaDEMO
It’s a stunt so that everyone would think kuti they are serious about tackling corruption. @NdiAshely
Chivayo pliz kna zvri zveshuwa fira mujeri namkoma wako gumbura kutu wemunhu. @denga_jay
He has that Obert Mpofu smirk on his face all the time. Can’t stand his arrogance. I’m sceptical though that this will come to nought. Government drags it’s feet where corruption is concerned. @MariaZest1
If my memory saves well, Undenge was hit with 4 years for 12k. Let’s see the verdict on 5Mil…I tell you if our justice system bluffs on this one. We are under siege. Doomed!!! I cry.
Today he was a little humbler to the camera man. Always cheerful tho, this guy aint scared of being locked up because of his other 3 year jail experience.
Why is he not in remand prison garb? Did Remand Prison Quartermaster run out of the garb or they don’t have size for Sir Chivhayo? @Tau_Moyo
This guy is weird, not class at all wonder why the likes of @GeniusKadungure they don’t tolerate him. He is a disgrace to all rich people, a shady dealer l hope the justice system see up to it for he abused public funds. @simbabzw
Publicity stunt anobuda uyu very soon otowana big tenders. Team takuriziva iri. @progressivezim
This guy is prepared to face jail and keep his money. Watch the space. @CriselChikore
