Landlord furious as Roki turns house into ganja smokers hideout
The JosphatsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ accommodation woes have taken yet another ugly turn. Barely five months after being evicted in Park Town for allegedly failing to settle their domestic bills on time,
It appears the Josphats could be on the streets once again. It has been established that the Josphats were served with an eviction notice to vacate their number 459 Kennard lodgings in Houghton Park. HMetro is reliably informed that the landlord, a Mrs Mazorodze, has been irked by Roki’s behaviour since the urban groover’s low key return from a nightmarish trip in Malaysia.
Neighbours, friends and the landlord concurred that Roki and friends have literally turned Mrs Mazorodze’s imposing mansion into a smokers’ and boozers’ paradise. The landlady came to H-Metro fuming and unamused.
“What I know is that Roki was not supposed to stay at my house,” said landlady Amai Mazorodze. “According to the verbal agreement my husband entered with Roki’s sister (Amai Bongani), that boy (Roki) was not supposed to stay at my house. She told me that Roki had sought his own accommodation.
But I was surprised to hear that he is staying at my place. “When I passed through my house this morning I didn’t like what I saw. “Pangapane dhindindi vachimwa nekuputa. (They were partying). As a Christian, I am worried because my house has been desecrated,” she said.
She added: “Right now I am going to see my lawyer and I will update you afterwards. “I wanted to talk to Roki’s mother but it seems she supports him. The only problem I have right now is that Roki has brought me misery. People always phone me telling me all sought of bad stories,” she added.
When H-Metro visited the place early this week, the “embattled” urban groover was surrounded by some rascals puffing suspicious-looking cigarettes. Roki went mad when he noticed us and manhandled the journalists. He ordered the journalist to stop phoning him.
Roki also told H-Metro that he was now demanding payments for interviews. “Very soon I will be asking you guys to pay me for interviews. I say so because you are killing my talent,” said Roki.
His sister Amai Bongani has also declared that she was not comfortable talking to the Press. She begged journalists to leave Roki alone. “There is chaos at Roki’s place,” said a neighbour who preferred anonymity for security reasons.
At times some rascals would be scaling the security walls in the middle of the night looking for Roki. When they gather outside the house, they start smoking mbanje and imbibing opaque beer. “At times they will be making a lot of noise when they switch on their disco and I don’t know when it will come to an end,” added the neighbour.
