"You Are Wholly Forgiven", Mnangagwa Spokesperson Tells Holy Ten

The Deputy Chief Secretary in the Office of the President and Cabinet George Charamba said that musician Holy Ten, whose real name is Mukudzei Chitsama, has been forgiven after he apologised for allegedly criticising the government.

This comes after Holy Ten said he was regretting working with Winky D in Ibotso, a song which is on Winky’s latest album titled Eureka.

The musician claimed the song had been sensationalised by commentators, mainly journalists. In a Twitter post, Holy Ten said:

Activists, journalists, lawyers – Split opinions will not do any good for a brand that’s trying to serve & save everyone so help me by not acting like I’ve picked a side. Do not politicize a project that I’ve considered a mere honor to be a part of. I regret it now honestly 

Also posting on the microblogging site, Charamba said Chitsama had been wholly forgiven but warned him never to criticize the government, saying “the feeding trough is important”. Wrote Charamba:

You are wholly forgiven Holy Ten. Next time usatize chikoro mfana Gumi. Chihiro chakakosha. Nyika inovakwa nevene vayo.

The song, Ibotso, has been viewed by some as depicting Zimbabwe as a long-decayed society in which the residents naively hope things will miraculously change for the better.

Brezhnev Malaba, a prominent journalist, in his analysis of the song, said Zimbabwe is a crime scene. He said:

Corruption-induced poverty has unleashed devastating poverty on ghetto youths. Hunger has ensnared naive girls into a life of debauchery. There are artistes who conveniently choose to ignore these stark realities. 

Winky D has set himself apart.

In Ibotso, he lays bare the ugly underbelly of a long-decayed society that foolishly hides beneath a threadbare cloak of self-denial, in the forlorn hope of swiftly waking up from a prolonged nightmare. Where delusion meets deceit, victims abound.

The Gafa chants: “Vanotora zvevapfupi nekureba”. What comes next is epic. Holy 10, his eager apprentice, then intones: “Sekutamba sekuseka”. From that point on, the flow is infectious, irresistible, and delectable.

so it's clear Dolly ten, yes Dolly ndewe part his a partisan.
When you are an artist and you become a partisan like Dolly ten you cease to be people favorite.
Dolly ten is forgetting that it's not the part that listen to his music but listeners or followers to his music. Thus why many Zim artists don't go international with their music.

Dolly ten should know this that wholly forgiven they say you are, but I bet you your music will go down the drain.

Why does he even care what journalists say. He didn't mention any party or any name he pointed some economic difficulties that are happening chete. He wasn't suppose to apologize. This young man he is easily scared by people's opinions.
In America you can even sing specifying names and their acts and at the wnd of the day you go slep peacefully. Munomu kutaura chete kuti ningi is, stealing even if you have solid evidence you're now an enemy.

Something is definitely wrong with ZANU. They equate the party president to the Supreme being. As if the party will exist forever. People like Charamba now think they bring life to people and can forgive sins. They must be very careful ZANU is just a party just like the Bath party In Iraq, like the NAZI in Germany. Like Sadaam Hussein and Hitler life goes on after politics. Politicians are not immortals.Just like Mugabe you don't own Zimbabwe
