Matavire, popularly known as "Doctor Love", was convicted in 1990 – with accused of Peter Mabvuwa from raping a disabled woman by the provincial magistrate Lawrence Kamocha Gweru. However, he was released after serving just 13 months of imprisonment for eight years imprisonment, thanks to the presidential commissions commissioned by the Justice Emmerson Mnangagwa concern.
Senzeni Mazeti, formerly confidante and performer of the deceased but talented musician, was his heart to Daily News on Sunday for the first time in almost decades for what happened on that fateful day in 1989.
"Matavire was in love with this disabled wife by Jairos Jiri, but on this day when we were on a tour in Chiundura, she was devoted to a female teacher and went with her. She always liked that with girls .
"When her girlfriend, the disabled woman, appeared at night to look for her, Matavire was not in sight. And when she heard what happened in the afternoon she felt that he was motivated and & # 39; I'm tired to bring Matavire down and claim to have been raped with Peter's help.
"But to be honest, he never had it. How did that possibly when he spent the night with the female teacher? I worked with Matavire for a long time – and I & # 39 I knew him from a way back when we were children because we were neighbors – and he had no reason to rape anyone. Girls loved him and literally throw themselves on him , "he said.
The 60-year-old dancer said during her time with Matavire, she was the one who would join the blind musician with different women.
"It was a sweet soul and he had a great respect for women. I have no doubt in my mind that he was convicted incorrectly," added Mazeti.
Shortly after he was released from prison, Matavire celebrated his freedom with a song titled Back from the College where he accumulated his experiences behind bars.
Mazeti said, his name, Daina, said that while the incredible musician had loved people and high relationships for female women, he was a harsh head that demanded no more effort from band members.
"Matavire was a good head but he was also firm when he came to a duty. I lost it and I want to adopt a band, so I can earn a livelihood through my & # 39; m God because I can also write songs apart from dancing, "he said.
"We went to charts with songs like Çhando Chinouraya, Yakauya Aids, Taurai Henyu and many other people. We traveled to Mozambique and West Germany among other international trips. I remember when we were in Germany, it was our Shanangurai colleague has come in love with a white man and stays after we got married. We lost contact since those days that there were no cell phones, "he said.
Mazeti noted that she liked the best of dancing Matavire and, because of that, their band was a great crowd.
"Matavire shows have always been overwritten. We were six dancers and we would name us according to our body structures. He had so much love for his members, but it was difficult when I came to I worked for women who could dance in a way that's exciting for parents. "
Now one former band leader Jairosi Jiri and the Hitmachine band, who went to be with the Lord in 2005, has committed the irrecoverable or not unreasonable sin as something that will continue to be. mystery. Daily News.
