Snr Ass-Comm Charity Charamba has dismissed rumours that she bleaches her skin.

She said her skin was real and her late father was light in complexion. “Three quarters of my time I stay in the office and my complexion that time was affected by the sun since I was a patrol officer,” she told H Metro.

She said she was proud of her acting when videos surfaced of her acting in Paraffin dramas.

“I have seen positive and negative comments posted on social media following a video clip about me acting in a drama ‘Paraffin. I am surprised by negative comments as if it is a crime to be an actress and why it has become a talk as if it was aired this year.

“I am not ashamed to be an actress and for your own information, I was already married when I acted in that drama and I was already with the Zimbabwe Republic Police.
