Demos Jeko was also accused of being gay after some of his pictures allegedly manipulated to show him engaging in homosexual activities were circulated on the social network site Facebook.
Sources said Jeko’s troubles started when he was accused of addressing an MDC-T meeting in Gweru in January this year. “Jeko, who is married with four children, has been surviving from handouts, courtesy of friends and relatives here in the UK,” the source said.
“He is afraid of coming back home for fear of being arrested over that unsanctioned meeting, but at the same time he can’t also stay here as his work permit has been revoked.”
He has also been receiving threatening emails from unknown people, the sources said. Jeko confirmed that he had been excommunicated from the church after he was accused of supporting the MDC-T and being gay.
“Yes it’s true I have been ex-communicated from the church over my links with the MDC-T before. They also accused me of being gay,” he said.
“That’s all I can tell you.”
