Legendary sungura musician, Aleck Macheso has scoffed off a social media post which suggested that he wanted to contest as a legislature in the upcoming 2023 elections.
The social media statement read, “Sungura musician Aleck Macheso is considering contesting Gutu West constituency come 2023. Confirmed reports say some campaigning agents are already mobilizing on ground. He is said to be spending much of his time at his farm in Chipisa with local villagers pushing this agenda.”
However, speaking to Bustop TV, Ochestra Mberikwazvo manager, Tich Makamadze dismissed the post saying that its a blatant lie and that his boss is just a musician and not a politician.
“He was equally shocked as everyone else. He actually laughed and asked me if it is already April Fools’ day. His job is to entertain, he is an artist not a politician. The post about politics shocked him. He doesn’t even have thoughts to become a politician,” he said.
If it were true that Baba Shero was venturing into politics, he would not have been the first in Africa and this land.
He would have followed the footsteps of former Zanu PF MP for Goromonzi and Deputy Minister of Information Energy Mutodi, EFFs Ringo Madhlingozi, former Congolese Minister of Arts Kanda Bongo Man and the man who swigged for the top in Uganda, opposition leader Bobi Wine.
