mubikirwa​


or chimubikirwa means either fake news, gossip, or propaganda that is presented as true facts albeit that isn't the case. Consequently, the story fails to add up due to a lack of convincing evidence to prove any claims made to convince a target audience.

This word is also used as a synonym for "doctored" or photoshopped V11s that are usually spread around on sosho media especially by various ghost accounts to mislead and disrupt a particular target group often with unreliable information to tarnish the next person's image or social standing with the general public at a large.

Note: In chiShona language, a person who habitually spreads false rumors is called zimwaya.
