"Kirsty Coventry Is An Excellent Swimmer But Is Drowning In Her Incompetence" - Mahere

Youth, Sports, and Recreation minister, Kirsty Coventry has been criticised for her silence when some groupings are urging authorities to ban Winky D from performing in Zimbabwe for allegedly dabbling in politics.

Winky D, born Wallace Chirimuko, is under fire from some individuals and groups including the Economic Empowerment Group (EEG) over his song Ibotso he collaborated with Holy Ten.

The song describes Zimbabwe as a crime scene where the “powerful people” loot resources meant to benefit the common man leaving them in abject poverty. 

Opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) party spokesperson, Fadzayi Mahere, has said Coventry, an Olympiques gold medalist, has failed in her role as a minister. 

Her remarks came after the EEG, a Zimbabwean empowerment lobby group founded by Mike Chimombe after he was relieved of his post as Affirmative Action Group (AAG) president, had urged the government to ban Winky D from performing in Zimbabwe. In a Twitter post seen by Pindula News, Mahere said:

Artistes are being threatened by @ZANUPF_Official. Shadowy groupings are calling for them to be banned for singing. Through it all, the Minister of Arts is fast asleep. @KirstyCoventry is an excellent swimmer but an incompetent public official. We need new leaders. She’s drowning in her incompetence. What a disappointment.

Meanwhile, Holy Ten, born Mukudzei Chitsama, has said he is regretting working with Winky D in Ibotso. He cites the sensationalisation of the song by commentators, mainly journalists, and activists.

why are we even winky D to be banned in performaning in Zimbabwe... they songs that were sang by other artists for some parties no one said let them be banned for it was on their side.

even so doesn't one have freedom of expression, do we now dance accord to other people tune.
it's a song only.

Why not ban corruption and ban those who fail to do their work right than wanting to ban a musician who says the truth.
We should stop listening to Holly zero music hes not matured kamfana kasina game.

Mahere was an excellent politician as an independent, her objectivity has gone awol since she joined CCC and it's sad.
She could just wait to see the action if any is taken by Zanupf and then make her statement. Everyone has a right to say what they like or dislike about artist, their products are for public consumption. Those who don't like the music should just ignore it.
Tuku was criticised for Bvuma, Winky D sang njema, Zhakata had Mugove, the list is endless, people interpret music or artwork they way they like according to their situations and experiences. Or maybe Mahere prefers the political interpretation.
Vakawanda vanodya zvevapfupi nekureba, not just in politics but even in business and churches. People in churches have been sold maize cobs for $10 some bought oranges for $5 each,,,,,hadzipere nyaya dze vanodya zvevapfupi nekureba

i just say no leader is perfect or a leadership post is difficult to handle because you face a lot of factions and sub groups with various agendas .This is but a challenge that forged a better leader.
