Prominent South African socialite, Somizi Mhlongo popularly known as Somgaga has been blocked from visiting Zimbabwe because of his sexual orientation.
Mhlanga is expected to visit Zimbabwe as a guest for the re-opening of the Garwe Restaurant.
However, the Apostolic Christian Council of Zimbabwe has submitted a letter to the office of the president, begging him to block Somizi from attending the event.
“We represent indigenous churches in Zimbabwe and are strongly rooted to our culture and support our revolutionary party. It is after we saw an article in our leading paper “Sunday Mail, 31 October addition” that a South African well known gay, Somizi Mhlongo is coming to Zimbabwe to grace the re-opening of Garwe Restaurant on the 4th of November 2021. The church is strongly against such an event in the sense that Somizi is homosexual,” said the church in a statement.
