MDC legislator Job Sikhala on Thursday rocked the social media spaces after his photograph in a stomach-tight waistcoat went viral.
In an interview with the Zim Morning Post Sikhala said he enjoyed the fun and also realised how Zimbabweans follow those who hold public office.
Sikhala, however, said the waistcourt was the work of photoshop.
“It’s good that people talk about their own. It really shows that Zimbabweans follow those whom they hold in high esteem. The surprise only came to realize that I have shut the social media down.
“The picture has circulated more than any trending news for sometime. It exceeded even the time when I was arrested. Although the waistcoat is a photoshop I enjoyed the funny as well. It’s not about allegations of being corrupt or anything negative.
“It’s people who just found light moments under the difficult circumstances under an unmatched dictatorship we are under. So let the people trend the picture,” Sikhala said.
