Apostolic Protests Block Somizi’s Visit To Zimbabwe
South African media personality Somizi Mhlongo has been blocked from visiting Zimbabwe after protests by the Apostolic Christian Council of Zimbabwe. The body cited Somizi’s sexual orientation as the reason for the protest.
Somizi is openly gay and has never hidden that.
He had been invited to attend the reopening of the Garwe Restaurant, one of the key leisure spots in the southern African country on November 4. But he ultimately didn’t make it, thanks to the protest by the apostolic body.
Garwe Restaurant had closed amid the heat of the coronavirus pandemic. Prior to closing down, it had played host to some key music figures in Africa, including Peter and Paul Okoye of the now defunct P-Square.
Somizi himself appears indifferent to the protest against his coming to grace the event reopening of Garwe Restaurant. The former idols SA judge is living his best life and enjoying every minute of it.
Just recently he had treated himself to a special time in the pool, which was filled with roses. He’d released a comic apology to the pool attendants for how he used the place.
Zimbabwe may not want Somizi, but Mzansi cannot get enough of him. When he lost his place as one of the judges of reality TV show Idols SA, the ratings of the show plummeted
