Sorry apology – The Herald

via ‘Nothing amiss with Gono retaining Biti as his lawyer’ | The Herald   December 19, 2013


In yesterday’s issue of The Herald we carried a story under the headline “Gono, Biti ties raise suspicion”.

The article makes unfounded inferences that former Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor, Dr Gideon Gono, is not a suitable zanu-pf candidate for the vacant Buhera Senate seat because he allegedly hired mdc-t secretary-general Tendai Biti as his lawyer.

The article also wrongly implies that Dr Munyaradzi Kereke is a zanu-pf legislator.

We apologise to both zanu-pf and Dr Gono for any harm that might have been caused by the story.

Zimpapers has since sent on forced leave the Editor of The Herald with immediate effect. — Group Editor-in-Chief.

    Why not apologise to Kereke for making him zpf? Obviously, this is not a genuine apology rather the fear of Jonathan after he sacked Zvayi.
