It ended in tears for a young Harare man after his girlfriend publicly rejected his engagement proposal at the Jam Tree Restaurant.
It is true when they say ‘umjolo uyanyisa’ and that it is not for the faint-hearted.
A man was left heartbroken and embarrassed after his attempt to publicly propose to his girlfriend ended in rejection.
In the video which is circulating on social media, the young man can be seen going down on one knee, holding a ring. The girl, however, doesn’t seem impressed by the proposal, instead, she quickly tries to get the guy to stand up. But by then, it’s too late as all the attention has turned toward them.
The girl, seemingly embarrassed by the gesture, rejects his proposal and promptly walks away, disappearing into the crowd. She left the guy still kneeling all by himself.

The video which has gone viral on social media has sparked a flurry of mixed reactions. Some social media users sympathized with the guy and felt pity for him. Netizens suggested that the girl should have accepted the ring to spare him embarrassment and then return it later in private.
A marriage proposal needs a sober environment I think !
Accept the ring, give it back in private, simple!
