Nigerian sports presenter Mimi Fawaz, who co-hosted the 2021 AFCON draw in Cameroon alongside Leonard Chatelain, has apologized for comments she made about mosquitoes in her hotel room in the host country.
Cameroonians did not take her post on Twitter lightly, after the draw on Tuesday 17 August “I cannot believe I’m playing hide and seek with a mosquito in my hotel room in Cameroon. The big bugger got my friend earlier and now whenever I turn my bed light off, it later swings by. Doesn’t know I’ve come prepared with tablets. Trying to catch it in the dark” she tweeted.
The reaction of enraged Cameroonians after these comments pushed the journalist to make another post apologizing and saying it was not her intention to offend them.
“I didn’t have any intention to offend anyone. Sorry for the offense, it wasn’t my intention” Mimi Fawaz.
She co-hosted the AFCON 2021 draw in Cameroon attracting much admiration. It’s unfortunate that the female journalist unintentionally annoyed Cameroonians with her remarks afterwards.
