The late property mogul Eddie Pfugari’s family has warned a Twitter user Emma Sithole to stop abusing micro blogging Twitter by pre empting the family’s estate wrangle .

The family has since disowned Sithole and labelled the account as ghost.

Sithole is claiming that Pfugari’s son Edward is who holds 50 percent of shareholding is not Eddie’s biological son.

“At the centre of this discussion is Edward Bayiti aka Foreman now Edward Nyanyiwa (JNR) now claiming Eddie’s Pfugari (JNR).

Was he given shares or did he bring investment into Mr and Mrs Nyanyiwa’s business,” reads Sithole’s tweet.

Sithole who seems to be a rivary property wrangle is calling upon Zimbabweans and South Africans to join the Pfugari wrangle.

“For release today of pnam happy with conversation.Documents from South Africa where other fraud was committed.Get talking .Get tweeting .Zimbabwe and South Africa together.Stopping fraudsters,” reads another tweet.

Contacted for comment Edwin who is also the family spokesperson said the case is pending at Harare magistrate court and Sithole should stop preempting what is before the courts.

“I am being accused of forgery and the case is before the courts hence the family is not happy with this ghost account instead they should wait for the finalisation of the case at the courts,”he said.

Meanwhile, the late Pfugari died in February last year after succumbing to pancreatic cancer and was laid to rest at his rural home in Chiweshe.
