Comedians pounce on ‘eat vegetables’ jibe


© PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa’s “eat vegetables” jibes have not escaped comedians who have already produced comic productions while feasting on his sentiments.
The president, speaking to Kuwadzana residents said people should forgo meat and go for vegetables and potatoes which he said are healthy.
Several comedians have come up with skits based on the jibe which has been widely criticised by long suffering Zimbabweans.
Comedienne Madam Boss yesterday shared a skit Muriwo Documentary in which she makes reference to vegetables and potatoes.
She repeats the similar sentiments by the first citizen that veggies and potatoes carry several health benefits. Her “documentary” profiles a woman whose life revolves around vegetables, from farming, vending and sending children to school with proceeds from gardening.
