"Floyd Mayweather Is Just Another Mercenary Out For A Payday," -Mliswa

Norton legislator, Temba Mliswa has said former American boxer, Floyd Money Mayweather is not doing public relations for Zimbabwe for free.

This comes after a video of Mayweather saying he was coming to Zimbabwe, Africa with his close friend – Scott Sakupwanya – the ZANU PF Harare Ward 21 councillor who is also a gold dealer.

Scott later said he had invited Mayweather and “he agreed to visit Zimbabwe hopefully before the end of the year.”

He added that Mayweather intends to invest in Africa with Zimbabwe being one of his main destinations of interest.

But Mliswa believes that Mayweather is being paid to do what he is doing. He said:

It should be understood that these Americans like Floyd Mayweather are very conscious about marketing and image rights. They don’t do anything for free. He isn’t some Pan African ideologue to glow over. He is just another mercenary out for a payday.

You want him to come here you pay. To meet him you pay. It’s not like he believes in anything about this country or is conscious of any ideological agenda which he wants to support. No! He is simply making his money. He would do anything for Zimbawe as for any other country.

We should focus on practical measures to make the country attractive for investors and foreigners NOT through paying them to speak about us!! Of course Scott is doing it also for his company, Better Brands but for the country, this is a damp squib, there is no value.

The government of Zimbabwe previously paid millions of dollars to individuals and companies to sanitise its image.

In 2019, there were reports that the government of Zimbabwe had hired at least four lobby and public relations firms – UK-based BTP Advisers, United States-based Mercury International Limited, Ballard Partners and Avenue Strategies to cleanse its tarnished image.

It's a pity that ED wants to run the country with a coterie of criminals whose CVs are dubious. Their background in a fluent democracy does not stand the test. Scott is known for splashing wads of dollars in Mabvuku escorted by a band of bad apples. It is a travesty to justice to have leaders of Scott's calibre and then dream of development and progress. Erecting boreholes is not development. We have had water oozing from pipes and showers in Mabvuku since time immemorial. To bring boreholes adorned with ED's pictures in this 21st century is totally retrogressive. We will 'eat' your money Scott waiting for CCC to replace the councilor you defeated in the by election. You won only because the people did not like Ndira.

@cute Nyika haivakwe nevene vayo kana vachi pretender. Ma investors haauye pasina profit. Kana muchifunga kuti Mayweather is here for your development forget. Open for business mandra simply means open for a loot county. Investors are allowed to take their profits and invest in their mother land. Actually their operation create a conducive ground for Dutch Disease !! Mliswa his on point, pure economics kwete zvekuti azoita Scott saka ndiri team Scott azoita Java saka....kutokwana chaiko otherwise hurombe haubve pauri.
