“When I was asked to go to Zimbabwe, there was one thing I was told: to showcase Zimbabwe to the world. To show a different narrative of Zimbabwe, to invite them to come and spend money and show it’s powerful and incredible in its special ways,” Pearl says they never planned to meet the President.

“When we arrived at the gala dinner, we were told that there’s a state visit.” She refuses to apologise to anyone. “I did not know I was going to be at the state house, and I didn’t know I was going to be in a situation that was going to look politically charged. We were told we were going to serve a tourism moment.
