Local comedian Comic Pastor, real name Prosper Ngomashi, was called in for questioning by the police over his latest skit which he did with United States based comic Alfred Kainga. In the skit, the two lampooned President Emmerson Mnangagwa after they portrayed him visiting an apostolic sect to consult and seek solutions for the country’s economic woes from one “Madzibaba Gafa”. The comedian has also courted trouble for himself as people who are disgruntled with his hard-hitting skit are reported to be searching for him. He has since been advised to tone down his work so that he does not continue upsetting the authorities.
Speaking to the Daily News, the comedian was not worried saying that there is nothing to fear. He insisted that the skit was a work of art and not an attack on anyone. Said Comic Pastor,
It was just a few questions over the latest skit but it was nothing serious. I’m told there is someone who is also after me, I don’t know who he is but he is not from the police, but there is nothing to fear. The skit was not an attack but is just something that ordinary people are saying.
