Pokello Nare: Why the hatred Zimbos??

Ok, so, I have exams in like 3 days and I'm knee deep in E-Marketing and Corporate Governance notes, but tjo! I just had comment about this utterly amazing venom that is being spewed left right and centre about Pokello Nare, the Zimbabwean female representative in Season 8 of Big Brother Africa. Haters even have enough time to make up and entire Facebook page called Bring Pornello Home. Lol! Peeps have time yo! Not only that, I've just checked out the page and it has 4,374 likes! Having gone through the posts a bit I realise a lot of those likes are from her supporters who also want to comment on the page.

First of all it's obvious that a lot of these sad people do not actually know the meaning of the word porn. Please can they Google it and educated themselves. Naked people do not equal porn. A man and a woman doing what grown ups do the comfort of their own bedroom (even without the headboard hehehe) does not equal porn. Yes they recorded it and yes the tape leaked. I don't know if that tape really leaked or if it was a publicity stunt but hey, that's not the point here. I'm not a friend of hers and don't know her from a bar of soap but as far as I'm concerned, she is a Zimbabwean first before anything anyone might care to call her and she is repping my country on that show. To me that means I will support her, sex tape or no sex tape, step-daughter of a minister or otherwise, she is a Zimbabwean first!

As a Zimbabwean, she has my vote!

Hanzi heeee she is not the ideal person to send to BBA because of her "questionable" morals. Who did you want to go? Mai Charamba? Or perhaps one of the female gospel artists with a "clean" history? Really? No, really? If it wasn't sad it would be funny to note that 90% of these people who want her to come home are women. PHd sydrome at it's best. I actually think the owner of that page has a serious personal vendetta coz eish, the emotion coming through from some of the posts!! People should not act like they haven't done questionable things in their lives. If everything was known about everyone, we'd be shocked to see Pokello is nothing compared to some of these haters.

In another post someone was whining about how selfish she was because she said if she won she would spend the money on herself and her son. At least she is honest people. None of this "Oh I'm going to save the world and adopt the world's street kids if I win" crap.

The saddest thing for me though is that all this negative energy is coming from fellow Zimbabweans. What image of ourselves does that portray to the rest of Africa and indeed the world? If we can be so cruel to each other then what stops other nationalities from doing worse to us? Where is your patriotism dammit? 

My wish is for Zimbabwe to win this game. Let's not look at it as Pokello or Hakeem but as Zimbabwe winning. (Actually, I think it would be hillarious if Pokello won. Like she said, "Bitches will become believers!" )

Seriously Zimbos ngatikwanei hanti?

Well, my break is over. Back to hitting them books!


  1. Remember teamwork begins by building trust. And the only way to do that is to overcome our need for invulnerability. Lets trust Pokello and give her maximum support!Individuals play the game, but teams beat the odds.Pokello to di WORLD!

  2. thank you. you took the words right outta my mouth. people need to get a grip. kana vachida zvebig brother they must also enter just like Pokello did. the hate is too much.

  3. I wish You good results on exams! I think we shouldn't hate anyone - nationality doesn't matter, only people. Greetings from Poland.

  4. Team Zim all is in the past ''Let he without sin cast the first stone''

  5. Pokello you go girl. I'm 100% supporting you and Hakeem. Keep it up Zimbabwe. Ramba uchigeza mwana waamai and show the haters what you are made of...
