Nyasha Chabika and Flora Tofa: Zim Women in Leaked Viral Video Granted Bail, Charges Explained

Masvingo Women in Viral Video Granted Bail for Violating Zimbabwe Censorship Laws

Masvingo Magistrate Elizabeth Hanzie has approved bail at ZWL$100,000 each for Nyasha Chabika and Flora, two women who gained notoriety last week for a video circulating on social media that showed doing what has been described in local slang as “eating each other’s cat and shouting Nyasha I am coming home.”

Nyasha Chabika, the daughter of a well-known local Zimbabwean pastor, and Flora Tofa, a single mother formerly employed at a local food outlet, appeared in court on charges of violating the Censorship and Entertainment Control Act. The act prohibits the importation, production, and dissemination of undesirable publications, pictures, statues, and records.

The court has scheduled their next appearance for December 18, 2023. The viral video sparked widespread attention and condemnation, leading to legal action against the two women under the mentioned legislation.

 It was a birthday celebration at the late Simba Langton Madima’s Morningside residence

The recent viral video featuring Nyasha Chabika and Flora Tofa, both from Masvingo, drew public attention last week. Today, on December 4, 2023, they appeared before Masvingo magistrate Elizabeth Hanzie and were granted bail of ZWL$100,000 each. The charges stem from an alleged violation of section 13 (1) of the Censorship and Entertainment Control Act, Chapter 10:04.

According to reports, the incident took place in June 2023 during a birthday celebration at the late Simba Langton Madima’s Morningside residence. The 24-year-old women are accused of engaging in an explicit act, recorded by Tofa, and subsequently sharing the controversial video on social media on November 27, 2023. Their next court appearance is scheduled for December 18, during which a trial date will be determined. State prosecutor Godknows Mugondo is leading the case against them.
