South African Broadcasting Cooperation Foreign Editor Sophie Mokoena is accused by Acerbic ZANU PF social media propaganda officer (Murakashi) Dexter Zvirevo for receiving money from the United States Government so that she can tarnish Zimbabwe’s reputation.
Zvirevo said the SABC was using old footage to create a fake human rights crisis in the country.
“Why are u lying against Zimbabwe? How much were u guys paid by the US?” Zvirevo asked Mokoena on Twitter.
The veteran broadcaster says the American government did not offer her money and she did not receive any money from its government.
“I have never gone on a charm offensive to invite international investors to invest in Sophie Mokoena. Americans can’t invest in Sophie Mokoena. I am just doing my job covering Africa the same way we cover the US and Zimbabwe doesn’t pay me for doing US stories.” Mokoena responded calmly.
