A SENIOR ZESA employee claims a commercial sex worker is trying to extort him by claiming he did not pay for services she rendered to him.

Shepherd Mandizvidza said Elizabeth Mutetwa is being driven by the urge to try and extort money from him.

There have been many stories of sex workers who blackmail people they would have engaged as clients, to keep receiving payments from them.

Some men have even claimed that they have been victims without ever knowing the sex workers now be blackmailing them.

Elizabeth, however, claims she did not get her dues and has promised to haunt Mandizvidza until he pays up.

She frequently visits the ZESA Head Office in Harare demanding to meet Mandizvidza claiming she is owed over US$70.

Mandizvidza told H-Metro that he was not aware that Elizabeth was one of the Avenues commercial sex workers when he accommodated her.

Ndakazviparira wangu,” said Mandizvidza.

“Elizabeth has become a nuisance to me and is extorting me because I paid her all her money.

“I was not aware that she is a sex worker,” he said.

Elizabeth said Mandizvidza relocated from his rented flat in the Avenues to an unknown place and that led her to look for him at his workplace.

“I did not want to expose him at his workplace but his reason for blocking my calls forced me to look for him at his ZESA office,” said Elizabeth.

“He hooked me from the streets and we had quality time at his rented flat in the Avenues area before he relocated.

“He only paid me US$30 promising to pay the balance of US$70 but is now refusing to entertain me.

“I will not stop visiting his workplace until I receive my money.

“He threatened to deal with me but I do not mind. Chero akandiuraya hazvina basa ini ndirikuda mari yangu chete,” she said.
