A corruption case have emerged involving Jacky Dube 22 years old, his twin sisters 14 years of age and their late mother’s family. According to the reports made to us by Mr Jachin and his father Dumisani Dube, Court papers in our possession, the Ndlovu family full of greediness and selfishness are trying by all means using their connections at ZRP and Bulawayo Courts to illegally take control of the deceased' s property and finances meant for the children.
Ms Sibongile Ndlovu was employed in government in the ministry of agriculture for many years.
Dumisani Dube the father divorced with his wife Sibongile Ndlovu. Sibongile was then given the responsibility of taking care of the children by the court, but latter passed away in February 2016 after a long illness, the Ndlovu family didn’t bother helping her during the time she was sick.
"Jacky is very responsible I thank GOD for him he took care of everything including his mother when she was sick,he played a key role that none of us including my in-laws couldn't", said Dube. "The Ndlovu family only came for the funeral" added Dube.
After the burial Dube remained behind so that they may have a family meeting with his In-laws as expected accordingly in line with Ndebele norm, culture and tradition. To his surprise his in-laws intentionally excluded him from the meeting, this did not go down well with him to an extent that he called Andrew Mlilo who is his uncle and Jehovah’s Witness Elder in Pumula Bulawayo, the same church where his in-laws also worship believing that he can handle the situation but responded with a message saying had nothing to do with this issue.
He later on discovered that the elder is actually conniving with his in-laws and he is actually the chairperson to the family meetings meant to deprive poor children of their mother’s possessions and pension without their knowledge. This is embarrassing to say the least for someone who preaches. He must be honest, and have love for others not to act in a cruel way like he is doing.
The issue got out of hand when the father phoned Senzeni and Vusumuzi Ndlovu a sister and brother to the late Sibongile respectively in August last year. Senzeni a Jehovah’s Witness congregate took my children without their consent and my knowledge as well from where they are staying with their brother in Phumula. She told my son that she was taking Linda and Londy my twin girls for holiday. She later came back demanding birth certificates and other documents from Jachin of which my son complied and gave her. In August she applied for Guardianship and Custodian for Linda Shemaiah Dube and Londy Shimeah Dube.
Mrs Moyo a Judge at the High Court granted her in October 2016. Despite the fact that this was done without any member of the Dube family let alone the father of the children and late Sibongile Ndlovu’s first son.
" How did the Judge grant her such? We believe that money was involved bribery was used to obtain such documents at the courts without due process being followed.
"To prove that these people are not sincere, when the father of the children asked Senzeni who is seemingly the main actor in this scam about the where about of his girls she said she didn’t know where they are. I had to ask Jachin to go and take them from her house where they were being forced to stay and they were brought back home" Dube said.
Senzeni who have a brother in Zimbabwe Republic Police force used those connections to intimidate the father and his son, where they were summoned to different police stations. They were summoned to Bulawayo Central police station by Chief Inspector Nyathi and also by Ncube who say he works from Tradgold, he also always come to my children’s house.
Dube’s in-laws wanted to access his children’s terminal benefits from their mother’s work place and they have since acquired false/fake documents from every government department. At one time they allegedly forged certain documents with the help of Bulawayo Senior Magistrate Eveline Mashavakure and Marilyn Mutshina.
"The Ndlovu family is going against the wishes of their daughter the late Sibongile Ndlovu who when she was alive put our son Jachin Thabo Dube as her Next of kin, he is now 22 years old and mature enough. Of which I also respect that and I agree as the father that Jachin and her siblings should be allowed to inherit their mother’s benefits without any hindrance from anyone not even myself, she worked for her children and lets all respect that". Dube said
What has made me to expose this to you and the media is that I have realize that Senzeni my children’s young sister to their mother wants to cheat my children. She already has shown her willingness and selfish ambition by taking the bed and cellphone which belonged to the deceased which she left and she is using those things now.
Mr Dube asked Mthwakazi Republic Party officials to expose this nonsense before it’s too late, as a concerned father. Because these people are taking advantage of the poor children and want to selfishly benefit from the poor children’s inheritance. We also say hands off the children’s benefits, Jachin is old enough to take care of himself and siblings.
Dube is the biological father of the children no matter what happened he can’t be excluded from them, the government officials also taking bribes to disadvantage the poor children must be warned we will expose you.
Dumisani Dube of Mathonsi legal practitioners in Bulawayo is now handling the matter on behalf of the children.
