The Minister of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Kazembe Kazembe said the government has not banned Winky D’s Album launch set for the Harare International Conference Centre (HICC) later this Tuesday.
Speaking to reporters in Harare on earlier on Tuesday, Kazembe condemned “social media” and “people who are up to discrediting the government” for spreading falsehoods. He said:
This is the problem with social media and people who are up to discrediting Government. Who has banned the show? Where is the evidence that the show has been banned and by who?
Every time there is huge gathering police have to be notified so that security measures are put in place to protect the public and property. This is not unique to this particular show
Police were just doing their duty. Government has no business banning musical shows …no show was banned by the Ministry of Home Affairs
Reports over the past couple of days had claimed that the Zimdancehall artiste’s much-anticipated album launch had been banned because it has some songs criticising the government.
