In a development that might come as a disappointment to some female revellers who were hoping to party with Zimbabwean business mogul and playboy, Rolen Muchegwa-who is well known for splurging money on women who catch his fancy. Uncle Roland, as he is affectionately known is reported to have had his company accounts frozen by South African authorities for alleged tax evasion and unscrupulous business dealings.
According to the local online publication, Zimmorning post, South Africa Revenue Services (SARS) is investigating Uncle Roland for tax evasion amid allegations that he is also involved in illicit fuel deals. Consequently, authorities have frozen the businessman’s company and bank accounts to pave way for investigation. Muchegwa, who hogged the spotlight earlier this year after photos of him with a bevvy of beautiful women emerged on social media, is alleged to be part of a fuel smuggling syndicate.
Uncle Roland’s ostentatiousness is suspected to have triggered the institute to conduct a lifestyle audit on him after his opulent lifestyle went viral on social media.
A source that spoke to the publication revealed the nasty details of Uncle Roland’s shenanigans.
Rolen’s accounts were frozen along with another South African based Zimbabwean businessman.
Sars allege that he is not paying tax and he is involved in dirty fuel deals wherein he buys petrol in cheaper areas like Kwazulu Natal province after misrepresentation of export and sell it at a profit in Limpopo province,
It’s a clique, him (Uncle Rolen) and associates.
They import cheaper fuel from South Africa and lie that it’s in transit to DRC but offload it in Zimbabwe and feed the black market for ridiculous profits.
The tanker then proceeds to DRC filled with water, because the weighbridge cannot dictate the type of liquid but quantity of contents, so this exercise legitimises the rot.
Uncle Roland who has previously served two years at Chikurubi Maximum Prison in Harare after a botched illegal deal is alleged to be a fugitive on the run from the police in Zimbabwe. He made headlines for the wrong reasons in 2015 after he allegedly savagely attacked his ex-wife and mother of two Michelle Kawome. At the time of the assault, Uncle Roland was reported to be terrorizing Michelle and assaulting anyone who tried to date her because he was still bitter that she had dumped him.
