MDC politicians, supporters make toxic, reckless statements: Ncube
OPPOSITION MDC politicians have the most toxic and reckless political statements in Zimbabwe, and their supporters think that insulting people will help grow their party and earn them more voters.
This was said by media mogul Trevor Ncube, who also sits in President Emmerson Mnangagwa‘s Presidential Advisory Council.
“MDC politicians have a high propensity for reckless , toxic and inflammatory statements.
“No wonder their supporters think insults are their only weapon in winning hearts and minds,” Ncube wrote on social media yesterday.
“Freedom of expression is constitutionally guaranteed. Hate speech and incitement are not,” Ncube added.
Ncube also said there is a lot of self hate especially by Zimbabweans on social media, something he attributed to the spread of fake news which portray Zimbabwe in bad light.
Government recently said a bill governing the spread of malicious fake news on social media will be signed into law soon.
