Lovemore Jiri responded saying, "1. Your tweet could have been lost in translation or 2. You may just have been a tad insensitive to the plight of Zimbabweans. Zvisinei, I forgive you. I had unfollowed you because I thought you didnt see the daily struggles of Zimbabweans. Now where is that follow button again."
