Matavier, known as Doctor Love, was convicted in 1990 – along with Peter of Babaue, who was accused of raping a disabled woman by District Judge Gweru, Lawrence Camus. However, he was released after serving only 13 months in prison for eight years, thanks to the presidential pardon of then-Minister of Justice Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Cazni Mazati, former writer and performer of the departing but talented musician, opened her heart to the Daily News on Sunday for the first time in nearly 30 years about what happened on that fateful day in 1989.
"Matavier was in love with this crippled woman from Jiros, but on that day, when we were on a tour of the Yondora, he was attached to the teacher, and he went out with her, he was always like that with women.
"When his beloved, the cripple, came in the night to look for him, he was nowhere to be seen, and when she heard what had happened this afternoon, she felt dizzy and plotted to bring Matabier downstairs and claimed that he had raped her with Peter's help.
"But really, she was never raped, how was it when he spent the night with the female teacher?" "I've been working with Matibir for a long time, and I knew him when we were kids because we were neighbors and he had no reason to rape anyone. Just throw it away, "she said.
The 60-year-old dancer said during her work with Matavir that she would connect the blind musician with different women.
"He was a sweet soul and he had great respect for women, and I have no doubt that he was wrongly convicted," added Mazetti.
Shortly after his release from prison Matavire celebrated his freedom with a mischievously titled song back from college where he chronicled his experiences behind bars.
Mazzetti, whose stage name was Dina, said that although the beloved musician loved people and was very attached to women victims, he was a strict boss who did not require maximum efforts from his band members.
"Matavir was a good boss but he was also the office when he came in. I miss him, I wish she had a band to adopt me so I could make a living with God's talent, as I can write songs besides dancing," she recalls.
"We have done charts with songs like Çhando Chinouraya, Yakauya Aids, Taurai Henio and many others." We remember that when we were in Germany, our colleague Shangurai fell in love with a white man and stayed behind to get married. Cell phones, "she said.
Mazeti noted that Matavire's favorite dancers were heavily built women, because of this, their band was attracting audiences.
"Matavire's plans were always oververscribed, we were six dancers and he was there by our body structure, he loved so many of his friends, but he was tough when it came to work, he wanted girls who could dance in a way that excites customers."
Now, if the Jairosi Jiri ex-band Hitmachine band, who went to be with God in 2005, committed the unforgivable sin or not something will remain a mystery. today's news.
