Zimbabweans have taken to social media reacting differently to Mbuya Nehanda Statue following President Emerson Mnangagwa’s visit to the Nyati Gallery near Snake Park, where the statue is being made by a sculptor by the name David Mutasa.
Reports has it that, the statue of Mbuya Nehanda will be mounted at the intersection of Samora Machel Avenue and Julius Nyerere which will remind people of how our fore fathers fought for the Independence of Zimbabwe.
The President Emmerson Mnangagwa visited the Nyati Gallery on Monday to take a first look at the Chimurenga Icon Mbuya Nehanda’s statue.
Zimbabweans are however posting negative comments about the statue of Mbuya Nehanda which is totally different from the Mbuya Nehanda in history books that people are used to saying it seems as if the sculpture of Mbuya Nehanda has gained weight.
“Mbuya Nehanda was eating a lot and she has gained a lot of kilos,’’ Said an unknown source on Social media.
Most people cannot stand the statue as they are suggesting that Mbuya Nehanda looks different with tint in her head. and some are even saying that Mbuya Nehanda is now “a slay queen.”
Beauty Zhuwao, wife to former zanu pf member Patrick Zhuwao on twitter said Mbuya Nehanda looks much younger than the original picture.
‘’I maintain that she has put on weight and looks much younger than the original pic,’’ she said.
Mbuya Nehanda is one of the greatest african female heroines who shaped and influenced the early African Liberation Struggle against colonization.
