The fierce and fearless woman recently released a skit mimicking former First Lady Grace Mugabe. She boldly told NewsDay Zimbabwe that no amount of intimidation was going to stop her.

In the skit, Gonyeti (her character) is having a conversation with 'George Charamba' (deputy chief secretary for the President’s Office) . In the skit, he was trying to get her to allow the president to attend Mugabe's funeral.

She then added, "We tell the stories of Zimbabwe and Zimbabweans. Being a storyteller is a thing I cannot stop. I will always find myself reflecting on stories from society and it’s not personal."
