AFCON Draw Host Mimi Fawaz Apologizes After Controversial Mosquito Tweet

The female co-host of the draw ceremony of the 2021 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon, Mimi Fawaz has apologized to Cameroonians and others who were offended by her tweet about a mosquito in her hotel room during her stay in Cameroon.

Recall that Mimi had prior to hosting the draw ceremony with Cameroonian media personality, Léonard Chatelain, tweeted about a mosquito she was fighting with in her hotel room in Cameroon.

“I cannot believe I’m playing hide & seek with a mosquito in my hotel room in Cameroon.

“The big bugger got my friend earlier & now whenever I turn my bed light off it later swings by close

Doesn’t know I’ve come prepared with tablets.

Trying to catch it in the dark “

– Mimi Fawaz (@MimosaFawaz) August 13, 2021

This definitely didn’t sit well with most Cameroonians who felt the Nigerian BBC journalist was being derogatory and could in fact not reciprocate the love shown her by Cameroonians. The tweet was widely condemned by social media users in Cameroon and beyond.

Mimi Fawaz has however in another post this Thursday morning apologized, adding that she had no intentions of offending anyone, rather her remark was self-deprecating (self-mockery).

“My remark about the mosquito in my hotel room in Cameroon was self-deprecating and I had no intention of offending anyone
Apologies for any offense this may have caused. I had no intentions of doing so,” the award-winning BBC Sports journalist tweeted.
