The local Zifm radio station has suspended its most prominent presenter Tinopona Katsande after a video of her in a compromising act of intimacy was distributed on the internet.
Tintin as she is known on the radiowaves’s suspension also comes after she issued an apology to the Zimbabwean community on Sunday.
In her apology, she said that photos of her with her boyfriend would be published in a Monday issue of the tabloid HMetro. The photos had however been published already on Saturday night two days before.
Millions of Zimbabweans took to the internet on Sunday seeking to watch the video . In the video she is seen laughing directly into the camera.
A senior employee at Zifm who requested anonymity confirmed to ZimEye that Tintin has indeed been suspended. “While we never assume responsibility for our workers’ private issues, our station will act where there are clear issues of public concern and this is what we have done as a precautionary measure against this mishap,” they said.
HMetro published a speculative piece that suggested that the man filmed with Tintin is likely to be the same man she once dragged to court for battery.
Meanwhile, Tintin was consulting legal advice following the publishing of her photos on the HMetro news-print.
