Mugabe, 92 has had some popular imaginary funny jokes attributed to him in the West African country. But Tenclai says the experienced politician has stressed he will not react to those hilarious comments because he is above that.
Here is some of the popular tongue in cheek quotes circulating on Whatsapp platforms: “If Ghanaians were smart, they would have moved the Akosombo Dam to Circle,” Mugabe, live on Peace FM.
“Even Satan was not gay, he chose to approach naked Eve instead of naked Adam,” Mugabe few minutes ago.
“And to those of you who do not actually go to church but watch it on TV, you will not actually go to Heaven, but you will be allowed to watch it on TV! – Robert Mugabe
“Simbox fraud two years… goat thief seven years… whatever you want to do in life go to school first,” Robert Mugabe 2016.
Tenclai said Mugabe is aware of the fake quotes, but will not respond to them since he regarded them as trivial pronouncements because he is: “above that… He is there to fight giants like the Tony Blairs of this world and not those little boys and girls.”
“I don’t get worried … What actually strikes me is that I get surprised this is actually coming from African journalists. As far as I’m concerned if Africans don’t respect another African head of state, I don’t know who else will respect him,” she told Joy FM.
She concluded by urging Ghanaian and African media to value their own saying: “Charity begins at home. The leaders in this job are the media and they can correct it.”
