The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) lawyer Attorney Tawanda Kanengoni has distanced himself from a Twitter account assigned to him on social media.
Adv Kanengoni stole the show with his calm and compiled representation of Zec during the Constitutional Hearing of the Constitutional Court of the candidacy of the MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa, where he sought a legal relationship because he had the election victory of President Emmerson Mnangagwa in the harmonized elections of July 30th. The court confirmed the election victory of President Mnangagwa.
Adv Kanengoni was a surprise package, because he defended the committee softly but eloquently by the awe of thousands of Zimbabweans who followed the procedure on the state channel ZBC television.
After the ConCourt procedure, a Twitter account has since been credited to Adv Kanengoni, but he has rejected it.
In a video widely distributed on Twitter by several Twitter users, Adv Kanengoni said that members of the audience should not follow the account because it was not his.
"It has come to my attention that someone who appears on Twitter with an account that Attorney Tawanda Kanengoni or T Kanengoni uses, I would advise the public that I do not have an active twitter account, and any tweets that seem to me so to come are not mine, they are fake and have to be ignored, "said Adv Kanengoni.
The alleged fake account with the photo of Adv Kanengoni attracted more than 3,000 followers and has more than 600 tweets since its inception in 2012.
Zec recently fired a fake account that was claimed to belong to its president Justice Priscilla Chigumba.
The committee stated that the fake account was intended to mislead the public and that it should not be followed. A week ago, the Judiciary Service Commission reported that Chief Justice Luke Malaba had a Twitter account claiming that those who had created the account were malicious and wanted to mislead wrong users of social media.
