ZTA opens the door for Zodwa to join Harare International Carnival
Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) boss Karikoga Kaseke said Zodwa Wabantu is welcome to join the 5th Harare International Carnival to be held from October 14 to 20. This follows the controversial exclusion of the South African socialite and dancer from attending last year’s festivities, a decision which was said to have been made on moral grounds.
Addressing the public at a press conference in Harare yesterday, Kaseke said there was nothing wrong with Zodwa’s participation. “There is nothing immoral about what Zodwa does. She was going to join the street procession decently dressed last year; it was wrong for the Ministry of Tourism to ban her from participating,” he said. Zodwa was supposed to be part of the carnival’s street procession as well as perform at a local club.
