Pearl Thusi swiftly became a trending topic on Twitter (now referred to as X) when photos surfaced of her and fellow actor Sello Maake kaNcube in Zimbabwe, donning Zanu-PF political party scarves.

Zimbabwe’s Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information, Nick Mangwana, extended a warm welcome to Pearl on Twitter, expressing:

“We warmly welcome South African actress, model, and presenter Pearl Thusi to Zimbabwe as part of the ‘THE TRUE ZIMBABWE TOUR’.”

However, Thusi faced criticism from Zimbabwean citizens for accepting an offer from the government.

“Celebrities can be shameless sometimes! They act like they want nothing to do with corrupt governments, but they conveniently turn a blind eye when it’s time for gigs,” read a tweet.

Questions arose about the authenticity of the insights Pearl Thusi might offer about Zimbabwe, as some believed she could be restricted to reading a scripted narrative detached from the realities on ground.

Both actors participated in a political party rally preceding the upcoming Zimbabwean presidential elections.

Many interpreted the circulated photos as an endorsement of the 43-year-long government political party, which has been linked to disturbing acts and the historical killing of white farmers.

The images captured Pearl and Sello seated in the front row, alongside President Emmerson Mnangagwa and other dignitaries, all donning Zanu-PF scarves.

Pearl Thusi wasn’t the sole target of controversy; Tweeps expressed disappointment in Sello as well, voicing a loss of respect for him.
