Confusion as Mohale allowed in Zimbabwe after Somizi was banned

Mzansi people on social media have expressed confusion over Zimbabwe’s policies after Mohale Motaung’s visit. Mohale’s visit comes barely six months after his estranged husband Somizi “Somgaga” Mhlongo was banned from entering the country because he is gay.

Mohale appears to be living his best life in Zimbabwe, and he has been gallivanting across the country on a solo vacation.

While many were happy to see him enjoying himself, some South Africans questioned how he had been allowed to enter the country.

They alleged that Zimbabwe was being discriminatory as it had banned Somizi from entering the country last year.

Noting the difference in the treatment of Mohale and Somizi, here is how some South Africans reacted:

@Sassy_Eni: “I have a question for Zimbabwe… Somizi was denied entry into Zim because?, but Mohale was granted entry…. Please balance me here. Is one better than the other. Consistency in this life is important.”

@jonathanjonip: “Remember when Zimbabwean gov banned Somizi from coming to Zimbabwe because he is gay ?”

@MoiponeSenoe: “So only Somizi I banned from entering Zim 樂, I thought the enter LGBTQ community was banned.”

The openly gay celebrity chef was supposed to grace the official reopening of Garwe Restaurant as a guest chef last November.

He was unable to fulfil this commitment after he was banned after Zanu PF party youths and a group of churches blocked the visit claiming Somizi would corrupt the morals of Zimbabweans.

However, it’s not clear if Somizi was banned due to a government directive or if event organisers pulled out in fear of retribution or boycott.
