Below is his statement

The last few months that i have been here in Zimbabwe, afforded me the opportunity to experience the real life our people are living.

I visited a lot of places including hospitals and schools around the country and my heart was very sad to see how things have deteriorated to this extend,.

I would like to appeal to the President of Zimbabwe, Baba Emmerson Mnangagwa and the rest of the government to work hard and restore the country back to its former glory.

Zimbabwe is a beautiful country and we would like to see our children and grandchildren grow up and live in a well run environment.

I have composed and sung songs highlighting the plight of our country hoping this would help our government to do something about it.

The welfare of our country is the most important thing more than anything else. Let us stop fighting each other as political parties and focus of working on rebuilding our country.
