News:Jah Prayzah speaks on Zimbabwe's current political situation. Facebook followers label it 'neutral'
<vote /> Mukudzei Mukombe popularly known as Jah Prayzah has joined a number of musicians that have spoken on the current political situation in the country. He posted what fans on his Facebook page termed a 'neutral stance' on the current political situation in Zimbabwe. On Wednesday 13 July 2016, a number of musicians were among those who came to show solidarity with This Flag Movement coordinator Evan Mawarire during his trial at Rotten Row Magistrate's Court in Harare.
Jah Prayzah posted what seemed like a prayer for Zimbabwe and asked Zimbabweans to unite not to spill blood or resort to violence on his Facebook page:
Mwari varikumusoro kudenga, ndimi makatipa Zimbabwe nezvose zvirimukati mayo. Kwatakabva nekwatirikuenda ndimi munoziva. Chishuwo chemumwe nemumwe arimunyika ino yeZimbabwe ibudiriro yenyika. Pachaitika zvose zvichaitika ngazvive zvinotungamidza mukubudirira kwedu isu Zimbabwe. Inini, Mukudzeyi Mukombe, Jah Prayzah, ndinokumbira kuZimbabwe yose vehama, kuti musadeura ropa kana kushungurudza mweya yevanhu. Ndinokumbira kubatana nekuti tiyeuke kuti; kuti tinzi Zimbabwe ndiwe neni,dakara mwari aropafadza nyika yedu yakanaka, ZIMBABWE Mwari, ivai nesu. Amen
Facebook followers labelled the post as a neutral attempt by Jah Prayzah with one user commenting,
"Words of wisdom but he is being very careful with his words so that he doesn't offend his masters Zanu-PF at the same time making sure he has at least said something so as to keep fans attending his shows."
A number of users concurred with this view with one of the users that replied on the comment saying
"Took the comment right out of my mouth he thinks we are stupid. This was the most passive aggressive statement ever.."
