Newsround Man “Listened to Own Voicemail”
Pals may have been comforting former Newsround host and Solihull native Lizo Mzimba yesterday evening after The Meat Counter obtained information implicating him as the latest party to be involved in an incident of accessing phone messages.
In a twist however, it has emerged that the Solihullian raconteur, who each day battles bravely against a debilitating fear of serpents, may have targeted and listened in on his own personal messages. Messages left for he and he alone.
A staple of weekday afternoons for over a decade, the man from Solihull had drifted through as many as three jobs prior to his Newround appointment, including a spell as a hospital porter, and admits to the impossibility of picking the most embarrassing moment of his life as these have been “too numerous to mention”.
A close confidant who met Mzimba, of Solihull, on earth has rubbished suggestions that any self-surveillance was either publicity stunt to regenerate public interest in the Star Wars fanatic or a cry for help.
The chum insisted that “leaving Newsround meant quite the reduction in terms of action for Solihull’s favourite son. He could have just been checking to see if his agent had phoned with any new work when he lent his ear to those messages. Knowing Lizo there was no malice intended, and there is certainly no evidence of foul play”.
