I would like to inform our loyal listeners and readers that there is a bogus audio/video interview being circulated on Whatsapp featuring a man who claims to be Lance Guma interviewing a Harare woman known as Geraldine Baye.
Geraldine was recently in the news after allegedly taking part in a ritual that involved mixing human waste with semen in a plot to win the heart of a wealthy businessman identified as Ishmael Matyenyika.
I have not interviewed anyone by the name of Geraldine Baye. All the interviews we conduct are uploaded onto our websites Nehanda Radio and Nehanda TV. We also upload interviews onto our official You Tube and SoundCloud accounts.
While it is certainly puzzling why someone of a sane mind would go to these bizarre lengths, it is certainly obvious to me who did this and why. Unfortunately for you, trying to blow my candle will not make your own candle burn brighter.
I feel sorry for this failed broadcaster who naively believes serving a discredited prophet will give him relevance in our society. While we seek to serve our readers with news and information some expend their efforts trying to appease dubious prophets.
We will continue to cover news without fear or favour and will not be distracted by childish antics like this one. Our listeners and readers know the official channels on which our content is distributed and will not be swayed by poor attempts at maligning us.
Let me end with a warning. While you might think you have anonymity on Whatsapp, spend time and reflect on how easy it is to trace the source of this audio/video to its originator if I really wanted to waste my time on this issue.
