Let the law speak, says MaPecca’s wife
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.
