Mugabe Instructs South African Socialite Zodwa Wabantu to Delete Raunchy Instagram Pic, She Refuses

Zodwa Wabantu is not here for that.

South African carefree socialite Zodwa Wabantu claims President Robert Mugabe instructed her to remove a painting she posted on her Instagram.

The painting sees Zodwa Wabantu flaunting her goods to the president while the Zimbabwean first lady Grace Mugabe looks on clearly unimpressed.

"I was instructed to remove the painting from my page and I refused. I told him it is for my fans, and they love it. It's pointless to remove it from my page because the painter posted it. Instead he should tell the painter to remove it," TshisaLive quoted her saying.

Zodwa Wabantu was banned from performing in Zimbabwe in August because she is known for performing without underwear, which actress Anne Nhira said would "tarnish our image as a country."

President Mugabe, speaking at an interface rally in Bindura last month, said he knew he was disappointing many men by banning the Durban entertainer from performing in Zimbabwe. "I'm sorry we disappointed many men," he said. "You just come without covering your decency. What do you want? Men to see you? We don't want such."
