Award winning journalist Hopewell Chin’ono has applauded Mudiwa Hood for the stance he took in assisting Paradzai Mesi

Writing on Twitter, Chin’ono said he does not support Mudiwa in most of the things but assisting Mesi who was humiliated on camera is commendable.

Hopewell said nothing is wrong with Mudiwa retaining Mesi’s dignity on camera on, the same platforms which exposed the man.

However, the journalist said Mudiwa’s only problem is that he supports a regime that has brought the economic humiliation to millions of Zimbabweans.

“Helping this man is noble, but we can’t live from handouts, what happens to those who were not filmed?… the real issue is why we got here where a musician ends up stealing to survive.”, he wrote.
