Entertainment hotshot, Taona Oswald Chipunza, popularly known as Teemak’s picture while in police custody has gone viral.
The usually composed and clean cut Teemak is pictured barefooted and humbly seated on the floor at the police station charge office amid allegations that he was arrested over fraud charges. Sources privy to the development alleged that the socialite was arrested after he pawned off a vehicle which he had bought on credit to a loan shark. He is said to have owed a loan shark money and in order to cover his debt, he pawned off his vehicle.
However it is alleged that the said vehicle was purchased under credit and he had notfinished paying for it.
Teemak allegedly pawned off a USD60k vehicle which he purchased on credit from a Harare car dealer, PanJap Motors.
He is alleged to have pawned the vehicle to a loan shark, to whom he owed an undisclosed amount of money, with others claiming that he owed USD40K. This was despite having only paid USD10k upfront for the vehicle to PanJap Motors.
All hell broke loose after Panjap received word on Teemaks fraudulent dealings, who then reported the matter to the police and Teemak was subsequently arrested
His sister, Namatai took to social media to rally behind him, suggesting that most of it was speculation and fake news by gossip mongers.
Teemak himself is yet to comment on the issue and give his side of the story.
