“Being broke is a mindset” statement iri is bullshit. I’ve seen some hustlers who tries very hard but zvichitoramba if you are privileged enough to get connections you don’t have to mock varikuedza or put unnecessary pressure,” said Chatunga.
Bernard responded insisting that poverty is a choice since everyone has 24 hours to work.
“Poverty is a choice, we All have 24 hours in a day, it’s what you choose to do with it that differs,” said Bernard.
After making the remarks that sparked a controversy for days, Mudiwa defended himself saying he was misunderstood and all he was saying was ‘people should change their mentality.’
