Fans of Big Brother Africa housemate Pokello Nare have clamored for her return to Zimbabwe, saying she is setting a bad example by cohabiting with a man she is not married to.
Traditionally, Pokello was not supposed to stay with her boyfriend until she marries. But so far, the two lovebirds have been gallivanting in Ghana, club hopping and cosying up as seen on the pictures posted on her Facebook page.
It has been more than three weeks since she left Zimbabwe for Ghana where, among other things, she is eking out a living through making appearances at private parties and clubs. Apparently, the “Queen of Swag” wants to venture into clothing business together with her beau.
“I think she has overstayed in Ghana. According to our culture, it is not acceptable for a woman to elope let alone overstay at a boyfriend’s house. Yes, you can visit your boyfriend’s house for formal introductions for two or three days.
“What we are seeing is a bad example of Zimbabwean culture. Maybe the Ghanian tradition is different, but as Africans we share a lot in common. Imagine she is a role model and what example is she setting to the young girls?” said one fan.
She blasted Pokello for “cohabiting”.
“It is unacceptable and not a reflection of Zimbabwean culture or tradition,” she said.
Another fan said the honeymoon was getting out of hand. The couple, who are now called Polikem by their legion of fans, also attended Selly’s birthday party last weekend. Other former housemates who attended the Ghanaian’s birthday bash include Maria, Dillish, Melvin and Bolt.
