There has been mixed reactions from the tweet, as Twitter users drag him for his tweet, while others supports his tweet.
@CatherineChipa wrote: The way man are attacked when they let their preferences known. I hear girls saying “l only date men, not these children who are the same age as me.” Buttt when a man does the same it’s now twisted and perceived as gender based violence.

It's ok to have personal preferences but comparing another human being to expired milk seems a bit harsh.

A mature 30 year old. That's the epiphany phase. At this phase, many suddenly matures and become church girls. They are just retired party warriors and slay queens who are ready to settle down with simps. If they were matured at 23, they would actually be settled down with a HVM.

You wouldn’t marry a 28 year old for sure coz it’s guaranteed that she wouldn’t fall for you

It’s so sad that in this day an age such utterances are still being made. Women do not expire and to liken us to groceries is detestable..what would we then call our mothers and aunts? this thinking is so derogatory.

Actually marrying towards your 30s or after 30 is better than getting married in your early 20s. In your late 20s you know exactly what you want from life including the qualities you expect from your life partner hence are less likely to end up divorcing that person.

You would not marry agreed. But expire NO a human only expires upon death. At 28,that woman could mould you into something. Chenga ose manhanga hapana risina mhodzi.

I pray that God give you a daughter or a sister and if she turns 28 before getting married you must sit her down and tell her that she has expired…And if you have a daughter or a sister I'm sure if they get married after 28 you won't accept bride price for expired things
