HARARE: Mambo’s Chickens, a local quick-service restaurant, has divided Zimbabweans on social media yet again with its latest advertisement. Many social media users have slammed the privately held fast food restaurant’s advertisement as tasteless and unpleasant.
Mambo’s Chicken has frequently been chastised for employing innuendos and sexual language in their advertisements. Now, the fast-food company is being chastised for lowering the bar even further by being tasteless and unpleasant.
Following a period in which Mambo’s Chicken appeared to have addressed consumer objections over its advertising, the fast-food business appeared to revert to its default settings on Wednesday. Most individuals did not seem to like the fast-food restaurant’s advertisement promoting its ice cream.

Tasteless advertising for a tasty treat. If it was attention they wanted they got it. Not sure the negetivity will help. The copy would have done well with a pic of ice-cream alone, this Pic they used 🤦🏾♂️………. https://t.co/tCPddqbwa8
