Mambo Dhuterere Issues Warning Against Fraudsters Exploiting His Name for Scams

Musician and entrepreneur Darlington “Mambo Dhuterere” Mutseta has issued a cautionary alert to his followers, warning them about fraudulent individuals exploiting his name for illicit gains. According to Mambo Dhuterere, some impostors have been using his identity to deceive unsuspecting individuals, resulting in significant financial losses.

In a recent social media post, Mambo Dhuterere disclosed that several of his supporters fell victim to a scam amounting to R24,000. The scam involved individuals falsely claiming to be associated with Mambo Dhuterere and his purported purchase of a Mercedes S500 in South Africa in 2023. These impostors adeptly mimicked the voice of a prominent figure, purportedly Honourable Tino Machakaire, in an attempt to persuade Mambo Dhuterere’s acquaintances to part with their money.

Sharing his dismay over the situation, Mambo Dhuterere expressed his frustration, “Beware, my team has been swindled of money by thieves claiming to be Honourable Tino Machakaire, alleging that I purchased a Mercedes S500 in SA in 2023. They are skilled at impersonating the voice of Honourable, insisting on R24,000 to facilitate the purchase of the car, even suggesting that you can come to Polokwane in person or they can deliver it to you for inspection.”

Mambo Dhuterere expressed his disappointment over the prevalence of such fraudulent activities targeting celebrities. He emphasized the detrimental impact on individuals’ reputations and urged vigilance among Zimbabweans, particularly in light of the increasing incidents of scams.
