Let the law speak, says MaPecca’s wife

Sunday News (Zimbabwe) - - Soccer Cricket Sport - Peter Matika Se­nior Life Re­porter

WHILE cir­cum­stances be­hind the shoot­ing, which led to the death of for­mer Siyaya Arts Group mem­ber Tawanda “MaPecca” Moyo re­main a mys­tery, his wife Jac­que­line Ch­e­sige­le­naso (Banda) Moyo re­mains silent about what ac­tu­ally tran­spired on the night of the shoot­ing.

The late Moyo, who was pop­u­larly known as MaPecca was shot by his wife’s al­leged lover, a pop­u­lar malay­it­shacum­busi­ness­man Ori­cious “Oros” Moyo, af­ter he had trailed and con­fronted them about their “il­licit” af­fair.

MaPecca was shot and left with a bul­let lodged in No Time, Poor Destiny Sa­gac­ity, (co-pub­lished) and his lat­est Be­fore I Be­come a Bil­lion­aire — Proff Ex Raught Me Lessons. his ab­domen on the eve of 25 July af­ter he al­legedly con­fronted the pair in Em­gan­wini sub­urb in Bu­l­awayo. He, how­ever, later suc­cumbed to the wounds in­flicted by the bul­let to­wards the end of Au­gust this year. His al­leged mur­derer, Oros has since been ar­rested and has ap­peared in court and has been re­manded in cus­tody for the charge of mur­der. He is sched­uled to ap­pear in court for trial on Tues­day, 19 Septem­ber.

How­ever, the ques­tion on ev­ery­body’s lips is, where is this woman (MaPecca’s wife) and why hasn’t she said any­thing, de­spite all the al­le­ga­tions and ac­cu­sa­tions be­ing thrown her way.

Her per­sonal and only recorded re­sponse to the me­dia was made on 29 July, af­ter she ac­cused the me­dia of “try­ing to ruin her mar­riage”.

“. . . had I known it was you peo­ple in there I would have made a scene. You have no right to talk to my hus­band. You left him in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion, I don’t know what you were telling him there but what­ever hap­pens is all on you,” she said in an in­ter­view in July.

She has since cho­sen to re­main silent and only her rel­a­tives have spo­ken. She also al­legedly, through her fam­ily, made sen­sa­tional claims that she and MaPecca had di­vorced.

She also, in shrouded claims, al­legedly told her late hus­band’s fam­ily that MaPecca was a “lay about job­less man”, who would wake up and rush to Ma­sowe church shrines ev­ery day and his fam­ily should be grate­ful for the good work she did by look­ing af­ter him in­stead of vilifying her.

Sun­day Life has tried to reach out to her since the shoot­ing to get her side of the story since the shoot­ing but she has cho­sen to lay low and not talk to the me­dia and in­stead speak through her fam­ily.

This past week, Jackie, through some of her fam­ily mem­bers said that the law would han­dle the case and would speak on her be­half.

“. . . this, as you know is a very sen­si­tive is­sue and that is why she has cho­sen to be silent. Let the law han­dle it and let her be. She has been at­tacked con­stantly by peo­ple through so­cial me­dia and you news­pa­per peo­ple. All she said and is say­ing is let the law speak for her. That’s all we have to say,” said a close fam­ily mem­ber.
