Top radio presenter with the Zifm radio station, Tinopona Katsande’s naked photos are out in the next few hours, iHarare has learnt.
The controversial Tinopona openly announced that a named tabloid will be publishing highly unethical photos of her with her ex-boyfriend within the next few hours. She has apologised to the rest of Zimbabwe for this development for which she acknowledges the numerous photos now made public. Below was her apology in which she also provides more details on the immoral photographs.
To my social media family and friends. it has come to my attention that the tabloid in Zimbabwe is tomorrow publishing some very private and personal content belonging to me and my Ex boyfriend. It is said this material was ” dropped off” at their offices this morn. (Sunday). I would like to formally apologise for the embarrassment this situation may cause you. It has not been my intent or purpose to have events that take place in my private life, be used to bring you disrepute. Sadly, as it happened, sometime mid of last year my mobile phone with all of its contents was stolen from me. The contents of my mobile phone contained sensitive personal messages, photographs and videos – that have now found their way to the public forum. I promptly made a police report on 20 October 2012 and in the report i sated the phone contained sensitive personal material. All that information was not and is not intended for public consumption. The awkwardness of this and other situations gravely embarrass me and make me feel exposed and violated. I thank you for standing with me, and believing in me but more importantly for supporting me through this regressive case of ‘violation’. Once again i will reiterate, Our media should never be reduced to invasion of privacy and human rights, and i feel that it should be a criminal offense if what takes place within the confines of private discussions and places is exposed publicly without expressed consent or permission. With that said, again – kindly accept my sincere apologies for any negative impact my personal actions may cause to you. My intentions were of the best motives and made to be kept between my partner and i. Sad to say, im left feeling vulnerable as I’m certain some people ‘delight’ in exposing me in a negative light. I am committed to our friendship and work and hope all slander does not impact on our relationship and what we set out to do together.
Albeit, my lawyers and personal brand management team are on it , I want to thank you for hearing me out and I once again apologize for the embarrassment or awkwardness this violation of my privacy may cause you and I sincerely implore that this does not happen to any of you unless you have consented to it for what ever reason .
