Newly appointed Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture Kazembe Kazembe has rubbished rumours that claim that he is President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s illegitimate son. The rumours have been circulating on social media ever since Kazembe’s appointment to Mnangagwa’s cabinet with conspiracy theorists capitalising on the perceived facial similarities between the two politicians. Previously, Kazembe Kazembe had shot to infamy after he was dressed down by former first lady Grace Mugabe at a Zanu-PF rally in September.
After his swearing-in on Monday, Kazembe Kazembe dismissed the claims when he spoke to weekly print publication, the Weekend Post. He said that even though both his parents are late it is easy to track his life and family history. Said Kazembe Kazembe:
That’s social media nonsense. You can ask the people who I grew up with. It’s all lies. People will always talk.
I don’t live in a vacuum I grew up in Mazowe. Go to Concession, go to Africa University, go ask who I am. I am established, its very easy for you to find out who I am.
I was in soccer for a long time why didn’t you ask me this then? Social media can say anything. I am here in Zimbabwe. I didn’t grow up in a vacuum. I went to universities which are here and my records are there. Please, this is rubbish.
