Speaking on her strained relationship with Mtukudzi’s daughter Selmor from his first marriage Daisy said she’s had enough of it. “There is nothing I can say about the issue because whatever I say it will be misinterpreted.
“If Selmor or whoever you want to bring to the fore has said something against me, I won’t say anything. “What I know is that newspaper outlets are out to sell their news and make money but what I know is that the truth shall set me free.
“I know I have never wronged anyone and God is my witness. Daisy said its not her duty to save everyone and help out all the poor people. “I’m not mandated to help all the poor but I can only assist where I can.
“My advice to those who might want to come to me asking for help is very simple: work hard and mind your business. “Where is it written that I must help people who are in need all the time? “I’m also widowed with my own problems that need to be attended to.”
