In December 2016, at a Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition conference held in Harare, Masarira reportedly said Ndebele people are cowards and cry-babies. The statement statements went viral on social media and news websites which accused her of tribalism. Masarira was prompted to clarify that she only meant that most people from Matabeleland generally (as opposed to Ndebele people specifically) were reluctant to participate in efforts to confront the system in fighting for their rights.
