HARARE – Radio personality, Samantha ‘Misred’ Musa has faced huge criticism from Zimbabweans after she posted a video on social media claiming Zimbabweans are exaggerating about the crisis in the country.
Misred posted the video on Sunday saying abductions and arrests of civilians was normal in Africa while rebuking her fellow country compatriots for allegedly campaigning against their country.
In the video, she said “right now now you don’t like your country. You have everything to talk about this country, so what are you fighting for? Absolutely nothing.
“If you say Zimbabwe is bad, people outside will also say Zimbabweans are bad.”
She also pointed out situations happening in other countries such as Nigeria and Uganda, insisting that there were countries that were experiencing worse cases than Zimbabwe but it’s citizens are”proud of their countries”
“Things are tight in Africa. Zimbabwe, Nigeria and all over Africa. In Nigeria, people are abducted, beaten and arrested. Don’t ever think it’s Zimbabwe alone. Something is happening in Africa. Uganda, for example, things are too bad, but let’s not go and say Nigeria is better than Zimbabwe.
“Zimbabwe is our country, we love our country and we need to fight for it. We need to understand what we value the most about our country in order for us to know what we are fighting for,” added Misred.
Many Zimbabweans took to social media, particularly Twitter to castigate the ZiFM Stereo presenter with many claiming she was benefiting from having a close relationship with a Zanu-Pf bigwig which is resulting in her being insensitive to the plight of the suffering citizens.
Fellow socilite, Olinda Chapel also called out Misred, labeling her latest comments as “disrespectful to Zimbabweans.”
“I think you are being completely disrespectful to the people of Zimbabwe. You just need to stop! Some comments you make are hurtful, especially to people like Itai and Patson Dzamara and those that were killed by soldiers,” said Olinda.
Recently Misred had to apologise on social media after being heavily critised by citizens for comments she made during an interview with a Ghanaian radio station where she also insinuated that Zimbabweans were exaggerating about the crisis in the country.
