Mixed Feelings Over Tsitsi Masiyiwa Tweet, As She Finally Apologizes

Zimbabweans using the popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter went into an overdrive over the weekend reacting harshly to a tweet by philanthropist and Econet Wireless founder, Strive Masiyiwa’s wife, Tsitsi over a tweet she posted on her account challenging people to be more productive with time.

The tweet that she could have genuinely posted to encourage her fellow countrymen and women to work hard and make maximum use of time torched a storm. Like the biblical story where Jesus told his disciples that, “if anyone will not welcome you or heed your words to shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town,” she unreservedly apologized.

Here is how the war started after Tsitsi Masiyiwa’s midnight tweet on Saturday.

1/2 Friends who responded to my tweet. I passionately love Zimbabwe love to express, debate & brutally confront the challenges that hold us back. To those who are angry and livid feeling offended, I apologise wholeheartedly.

2/2 Dialogue is critical to get us moving forward & it gives us a platform to seek solutions. It’s part of the way we fix ourselves and each other. Let’s share solutions as we face hard truths. My work in the community expresses my passion. Tsitsi Masiyiwa
