Homeless socialite Mukoma Masimba, popularly known as Legend of Facebook, says he has been reportedly forced into “commercial” prostitution in Australia.
A man who rose to the top of the limelight on social media feels Australian authorities have let him down after failing to offer him proper accommodation for a year.
He has since lodged a written complaint with the authorities. Masimba, who last year left his home and decided to stay on the streets of Melbourne, has raised suspicions that he might be facing mental health challenges.
He is taking lessons under contract on how to satisfy clients. In some explicit videos he is being taught how to treat male and female clients.
He lamented neglect by the authorities and called for intervention. Some sections have described him as losing sanity, but he insists that he is of sound mind.
In an interview, he discussed his status and dilemma. “I have been staying in the streets for a year and the authorities here have not helped me to get a proper place to stay.
“And now I have resorted to commercial thigh vending to make ends meet. “I am on my way to satisfy a client, it’s not by choice or optional, but circumstances beyond my control have forced me to do this.
“I have no other way of making money since some drug addicts are stealing my medication. “The authorities here ill-treated me and I have since made a complaint, which I believe should be heard back home.
“Remember last year I went into the streets before the outbreak of Covid-19. “Many people believed that I was bewitched by Sekuru Banda, which was not true and I was called someone with mental illness, but I was tested for all that,” he said.
Added Masimba: “I am okay, but the authorities here exposed my HIV status and no one wants to be associated with me now.
“I was forced to reveal my status after some drug addicts here were stealing my pills and I had to confess so that they could not continue stealing, but I put the blame on the authorities here.
“And now I have shifted focus so that I can manage to survive from thigh vending. “I am angry with the Australian government, they have violated my privacy and now most homeless people in Melbourne now know I am HIV positive because I have been homeless for one year.
“The same Australian government imposed sanctions on Zimbabwe. “I remember writing BhukureBenzi when I was always showing the same Australia also abuses Australians.
“I am appealing to the authorities back home to take note of my issue. “Australia imposed sanctions on my country and they should remove them, our President is a listening man.”
