Speaking to The Standard in an interview Mushohwe also threatened to put the journalist interviewing him on blacklist for asking the question:
It is absolute defamation of character. You are trying to make me and my sector avoid you. You mean it’s only you who had eyes to see that and the rest of us couldn’t see? Bring the script. Why are you people from the private media so negative? With all the effort I am making so that we are one, you just want to see things with negative eyes and create your own images, why? It’s you alone who saw that. What do you mean? In the media, I know you want to please whoever you want to please, but the truth is that you are a Zimbabwean and you can’t begin to manufacture things and say the president had a problem walking, what do you mean? Did you carry him? I will put your phone on blacklist. I respect you but there are useless things that you say just to try and mock the head of state. Give me the clip and I will answer that. I was there.
