    Chiyangwa in trouble over viral cop dodging video?

    Flashy Harare tycoon, Phillip Chiyangwa is reportedly in hot soup over the video footage in which he dodged a police roadblock.

    In the video he ridicules the law enforcement agents saying they are pests which ask nonsense and request to know the brand of the car or to see the battery.

    Reached for a comment, Mr Chiyangwa yesterday said a Danish television station, which shot the documentary for its audience in that country, was very ‘angry’ that the clip had gone viral in Zimbabwe. The video, was trimmed from a documentary detailing Chiyangwa’s flamboyant lifestyle.

    He told the Chronicle: “People from the Danish Television station have contacted me asking how the clip made its way onto the Internet. It was shot five years ago and when they finished shooting at the time, I asked them for a copy, but they said whoever wanted to watch it should buy it,” he said.

    Chiyangwa says sharing the video could result in some unfortunate legal actions.
    “The documentary is the property of the Danish TV station so using that clip is not a smart thing for you to do because it has legal implications. I don’t even remember the presenter’s name or the length of the documentary as I signed off the rights to the television station when they concluded the shoot,” said Chiyangwa.

    But given the virality of the video, he says he is now considering making a documentary so that people can actually take a peek of his fabolous, heaven like life.

    “The documentary I’ll come up with will be centred on transforming workers into entrepreneurs. The documentary will be about unlocking the inner entrepreneur in most Zimbabweans,” said Chiyangwa.

    Questioned if it was the norm for him not to stop at roadblocks, Mkoma Fidza, as Chiyangwa is known, beat about the bush and instead tryied to wriggle out of the controversy by giving the following illogical reason: “What if that clip was from Zambia or Tanzania? Sometimes the uniforms that our police officers wear are similar to police in those countries.”

    Police are yet to comment on the video, but in Zimbabwe basically failure to comply to a traffic officer’s command attracts a spot fine of $20. It is not clear however if ‘ridiculing’ the police and making derogatory comments about them is punishable at law. Iharare.
