Rumour: Winky D manager detained by ZRP ahead of album launch. Harare has just learnt this evening that Winky D’s manager has been allegedly called in for questioning by The Zimbabwe Republic Police. The information was shared by veteran Journalist Maynard Manyowa on Social Media.The launch of Winky D’s latest album ‘Njema’ has been marred by controversy, with reports that the Government had banned songs on the album which were later refuted by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information Nick Mangwana.

Am told Winky D’s manager has been called in by The Zimbabwe Republic Police & is currently at CID Law and Order, at Harare Central Police Station. A senior Police source tells me he is unsure if its a detention but says this is more likely to do with Winky D’s album launch tomorrow, which maybe cancelled if clearance and permission wasn’t sought prior.

The source adds that the launch may be classified as a political gathering or a gathering to air political statements, which the senior source says means Winky ought to have asked for POSA (Public Order and Security Act) clearance.

Also says Police are concerned that people offended by Winky’s songs may cause violence. Another reason he says police may try to put forward is that they apparently don’t have adequate resources to maintain peace, law and order at the show as their resources are stretched thin over New Year.

Government latter

These among others maybe put forward as reasons for cancelling the show. If it does happen that they take that route. I tried and failed to get any official comment from any senior police figures. None of the three I know who can speak on behalf of the police as a whole is picking calls.

 

The earlier government denied reports that they had ordered a blackout of Winky D’s songs and asked Power FM to pull his interview. They denied this but the scheduled interview didn’t happen either.

The Minister of Home Affairs Kazembe Kazembe has called for a Press Conference tomorrow at 9 am to address issues related to the launch of the Njema Album. IHarare will be updating you as events unfold.

There is also a letter circulating of government booking the HICC the very same day Winky D is supposed to use the venue to drop his much-anticipated album Njema. Check the picture below
