Zimbabwe Tourism Authority Chief Executive Karikoga Kaseke has blasted actress Anne Nhira over her requests to have South African dancer and socialite Zodwa Wabantu banned from performing at the carnival calling her a mouthpiece for people who want to disrupt the showcase.

Speaking on Star FM's 326 Express, hosted by Phathisani Sibanda and KVG, Kaseke said there were conditions for Zodwa Wabantu to perform at the carnival one of which was that she should wear her underwear as she cannot perform at the carnival with no panties as we hear she does in SA.

"One is that she should wear her underwear as she cannot perform at the carnival with no panties as we hear she does in SA. I said we have leaders in this country, chiefs that lead us at this carnival and they will not be happy to work with us if we allow Zodwa to perform like that as Zimbabwe is still a very conservative society that upholds people's culture and privacy.

"When this reached Zodwa, she was not amused and said she has worked hard to create her brand and said if the Zimbabwean people said they want her, they must know that brand so setting conditions on me is attacking my personal liberties.

"I replied her and said if she thinks we are attacking her liberties we are very sorry. All I am saying is Zimbabwe is a conservative society and for you to perform without panties, it would be impossible and she agreed to the conditions and is even on record on social media stating that she will perform and will abide by the conditions."

Zodwa was allegedly banned from performing at the upcoming Harare International Carnival after actress Nhira's complaint.

"I hear, because I do not know this Zodwa, that she takes off her panties when she performs in public so I said she cannot do so in Zimbabwe. She can do it in Durban if they allow that but not here."
