ZB Bank chief executive officer Ronald Mutandagayi has denied allegations that he assaulted his wife.
This follows a video that went viral on various social media platforms in which he purportedly to be assaulting his wife.
In a statement, Mutandagayi said he was also a victim in the case.
“I have noted with regret that there is video footage circulating on social media suggesting that I assaulted my estranged wife,” he said.
” Whilst the circumstances of the event cannot be attributed to me alone, it is important in that regard to put the record straight.
“The unfortunate circumstances surrounding the incident occurred on 2 January 2021 after three consecutive days of severe assault and harassment on my person.
” It is surprising that only two months later is when such footage is issued.
“The bona fides of such action is questionable.”
In defending himself, Mutandagayi said the video footage showed a certain portion of the incident obviously meant to sell a certain narrative.
“Nonetheless, I am mindful of my right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty,” he said.
“Since the matter is currently pending before the Courts, I shall let the law take its course.”
