Somizi criticizes Zimbabwe – ‘Keep your country’
“ Keep your space, keep your country. I do n’t want to be there anyway”, Somizi Mhlongo has eventually responded to his ban from Zimbabwe. Speaking to followers on his Instagram profile, he addressed the recent letter by The Apostolic Christian Council of Zimbabwe to the government to stop him from entering the country.
According to the actor, he’d been off Instagram for some time when he got inviting requests from intelligencers to respond to the news that Zimbabwe had asked him to keep off. He explains that the news was n’t all that surprising, as he’d seen the signs of the event organizers backing out indeed before.
This isn’t the first time this is passing to me, so I ’m okay”, the celebrity cook expressed. Indeed so, he empathized with other LGBTQI people in Zimbabwe and other countries, who weren’t free to be themselves. He listed African countries in which the community is oppressed, including Uganda and Nigeria, and said it’s sad that numerous people in his community aren’t accepted. He’d rather stay in SA, he said, after all, he’s comfortable, safe and happy then.
The bad news from Zimbabwe won’t stop Somizi however, as countries scramble for a piece of him. Lower than 24 hours after the ban, the actor entered a better offer for another gig in Namibia. “ History after my Zimbabwean saga, then I’m now. I got an invite incontinently, designedly, supposedly, coincidently. I ’m going to Namibia!”
Despite their stylish attempts, the church officers in Zimbabwe have failed to stop Somizi, and he has not nestled down from rubbing it in their faces. He laughed jubilantly at the fact that commodity differently came up so snappily, and was happy with how presto the whole process was.
“ Some of you do n’t know God”, Somizi laughed as he participated the good news. This was easily an circular poke at those who felt they could spread hate for him because of religion and church. He knows where he stands with God, and has made it clear that their opinions do n’t matter to him.
It’s great that he has entered an invite to a country where he’s wanted and wo n’t be discerned against on the base of his sexual exposure. Speaking to the Zimbabwean officers who did n’t want him in their country, he said they were just as bad as racialists, and that his presence in the country wasn’t going to make people gay. “ I’m not the reason that people are homosexual”, he said. And you know, he’s right on that point.
