Sunday Mail editor now said to be Baba Jukwa


Sunday Mail editor Edmund Kudzayi who was arrested on Thursday is now being accused of being Baba Jukwa, a faceless facebook character that claimed to be a disgruntled Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front insider and was very popular in the run-up to the 2013 elections. The media including the Sunday Mail last month “exposed” Baba Jukwa as two South African based reporters, Mxolisi Ncube and Mkhululi Chimoio of the Zimbabwean. Kudzayi was appointed editor of the Sunday Mail in April. He appeared in court today charged with insurgency, terrorism, banditry, sabotage, subverting a constitutionally elected government and not securing firearms but was not asked to plead and will appear in court on Monday. Kudzayi is alleged to have connived with his brother in Aril last year to overthrow the government and opened a Baba Jukwa email account. The Baba Jukwa facebook page was created on 22 March 2013.
