Kudzai Mawunganidze Kid Lyrik

Kid Lyrik – real name Kudzai Mawunganidze – has revealed how drug dealing got him deported from the United States.

Kid Lyrik (27) who was in the US since the age of eight staying in Texas was deported last year in October after being arrested by undercover police during a cocaine drug deal.

He was also caught in possession of four kilogrammes of marijuana.

Like most rappers in the US, who start off as drug dealers and then pursue their music professionally to becoming stars, Kid Lyrik had seen himself take the same path.

Kid Lyrik, who is now staying with his uncle in Marlborough in the capital, opened up about his gangster lifestyle that included, drug dealing, women, owning a gun and getting intoxicated basically on a daily basis.

“I left Zimbabwe when I was eight, at that time I was staying with my grandmother in Chitungwiza, both my parents’ were already in the US.
“I was staying in Texas-Dallas and over the years, I became good friends with many cowboys, some who later who became my marijuana suppliers.

“I considered drugs after I lost my dad in 2009, I was very close to him than I was to my mom and losing at a time when I was graduating from high school the next year kind of affected me.

“My dad had separated with my mom and he had moved back to Zimbabwe where he died.

“From there I started taking drugs then went to selling marijuana.

“I would take cocaine too but it wasn’t my trade,” he said.

He said he had two accomplices that helped him sell the marijuana, his two girlfriends he stayed with, one named Kara and other Sally Gee.
He added he slept like a king, as he would get sexually engaged to both of both at the same time (three-some).

“I met these two girls when they were already dating each other, they were bisexual and after the three of us clicked everything was good.

“They would do anything for me from selling marijuana to just anything.

“It was also good business having the two girls play front as it brought in many customers.

“I was making around a thousand dollars a week a selling one gramme for ten dollars.

“I wasn’t rich but it was good money, I was comfortable and lived the lifestyle I wanted.

“I was also making around US$150 a day from my Snapchat account,” he said.

As a drug dealer, Kid Lyrik said he also owned a gun and at some point had three guns that he used a couple of times.

Kid Lyrik said he was growing popular around Texas with his music, which he produced and wrote on his own.

He became popular, got the attention around Texas and was performing at small and big events in the city.

“My music was basically about drugs, sex and money but I always wanted my music to have a deeper meaning combining that, so I started to teach myself sociology and psychology.

“As a rapper, I knew it would take me global.”

However, his music-gangster lifestyle came to an end when he was arrested.

He spent nine months behind bars and from there he was deported back to Zimbabwe.

“I never saw myself coming to Zimbabwe I just thought after my release I am going back to my lifestyle.

“I wrote a lot of music whilst I was in prison and it’s all on my upcoming EP entitled “The irony of contradiction”

“I produced the EP with the help of my young brother Blawu.”

Kid Lyrik still strongly believes he can go global with his music and has recently released a song entitled “Coming to America” produced by Oskid.

“The song is about me going back to America, not physical since I was deported but going back to America in the sense of my music playing in America.

“I was already making ‘noise’ in Texas with great potential of blowing up in other states in America and that dream for me still lives on.
“I have great faith I will make it with my music.

“I also want to study sociology and psychology majoring in mass communication, hopefully, next year I start my studies,” he said.H-Metro

The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) is reported to have seized flamboyant businessman Genious Kadungure’s recently acquired Ferrari following reports that he allegedly undervalued the vehicle.

This follows after, Ginimbi, as he is affectionately known by his associates, was recently arrested for allegedly defrauding the revenue authority after ‘manufacturing’ a receipt for his Bently Continental which he recently imported from South Africa.

The revenue authority has allegedly moved to impound the businessman’s Italian luxury sports car under suspicion that he used the same modus operandi to avoid paying duty in full.

Harare regional magistrate Crispen Mberewere deferred the matter after the State led by Mr George Manokore and Sheila Mupindu opposed to granting him bail arguing that he was likely to re-offend and interfere with investigations.

In a bid to substantiate its claims, the State called the investigating officer in the matter Detective Chief Inspector Erasmus Mashawidza to testify to that effect.

Uncle Roland Muchegwa

Uncle Roland Muchegwa ’s ostentatiousness lifestyle is alleged to have triggered the authority to conduct a lifestyle audit on him after he went viral on social media for splurging money on beautiful Mzansi women keen to make a ‘quick buck’.

Roland Muchegwa is alleged to be part of a fuel smuggling syndicate which has been diverting cheap fuel from areas like Kwazulu Natal province after misrepresentation of export and allegedly selling it at a profit in Limpopo province.

The well-knit syndicate also allegedly imports fuel from South Africa and lies that it’s in transit to DRC but offloads it in Zimbabwe where there are fuel shortages and feeds the black market for ridiculous profits.

The tanker then proceeds to DRC filled with water, because the weighbridge cannot dictate the type of liquid but quantity of contents, so this exercise legitimises the rot.

Wilfred Marodza raped woman four times in the park

Wilfred Marodza

Wilfred Marodza, a trainee solicitor at a top law firm who repeatedly raped a young woman after stalking her and dragging her to a park is facing years in prison.

Marodza, 28, pounced on the victim, in her twenties, in the early hours of July 20 as she walked along Great Dover Street in Borough, grabbing on to her neck and threatening her as he forced her into a secluded part of Dickens Fields.

He then stripped her and raped her four times before she managed to break free, Inner London crown court heard.

She fled naked through the street with Wilfred Marodza in pursuit, as he claimed to bystanders they were having a “domestic” before she managed to escape in a passing minicab.

Marodza, a trainee solicitor with firm Cripps Pemberton Greenish, had been drinking in the area before carrying out the attack at 2.15am and struck again less than two hours later.

He grabbed another woman, also in her twenties, from behind in Borough High Street and put his hand over her mouth, attempting to drag her into a side street. However, the woman screamed and Wilfred Marodza fled.

Police were able to catch him because he left his rucksack, with his work identification inside, at the scene.

CPS prosecutor Nahid Mannan said: “This was a horrendous attack on two young, lone females. The prosecution case included compelling evidence showing Marodza dragging the two victims to secluded areas and also chasing the naked victim he had just raped.

“Marodza also left his rucksack containing his work identification at the scene of the rape, allowing police to easily identify him.

“The CPS takes crimes against women extremely seriously and I hope this conviction goes some way to provide the victims with a degree of closure.”

At court yesterday, Wilfred Marodza, a Zimbabwean national from Eastbourne in East Sussex, pleaded guilty to four counts of rape, kidnapping and a charge of committing an offence with the intent to commit a sexual offence.

He was remanded in custody by Judge Nigel Seed QC until a sentencing hearing next month.

Gavin Tyler, the managing partner at Cripps Pemberton Greenish, said: “We are completely appalled to learn of Wilfred Marodza’s conviction for such shocking offences. We were informed by the police in July of the arrest and that he was remanded in custody but did not know anything about the details of the offences until today. Our thoughts, of course, are with the victims and their families.

“Although there were never any concerns raised internally regarding Mr Marodza, we are offering support for staff members who worked closely with him or who feel affected by the news for any other reason.” The Standard
