Regional firm cuts ties with executive

Paidemoyo Chiwoneso Chideya

Johannesburg-based multinational venture capitalist Epikaizo Capital Limited has parted ways with long-serving executive Paidemoyo Chiwoneso Chideya.

The company has a presence in Botswana, Hong Kong, Mauritius, Namibia, Singapore, Switzerland, United States, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

“The board of directors and management of Epikaizo Capital Proprietor Limited and its subsidiaries wish to announce that Paidemoyo Chiwoneso Chideya is no longer a part of Epikaizo Capital in any capacity whatsoever effective 27 December 2023,” an Epikaizo Capital statement read.

It added: “In the wake of her departure from the organisation, the company and its subsidiaries advise its stakeholders and potential clients that the company will not be held accountable for any acts of omission or commission that may be done by the named.”

Chideya is also chairperson for Supermodel Zimbabwe, and vice chairperson of the Fashion Council of Zimbabwe. There are active investigations going on as to the possible use or abuse of these two platforms to engage in other activities outside of fashion, modelling and design.

The relations between employer and employee became frosty after allegations of leaking proprietary company (Epikaizo Capital Limited) information to national security entities of Zimbabwe, which she is widely suspected to work for.

Chideya and Epikaizo Capital Limited executive chairman Raymond Chamba are reportedly going through a divorce.

Epikaizo’s areas of interest include agriculture, energy, (oil and gas), hospitality, infrastructure, mining, real estate and transportation.
