Unverified screenshots spreading around on WhatsApp, Twitter, and Facebook suggest that some sell their toes for as much as US$40,000 for the big toe, US$25,000 for the middle toe and US$10,000 for the tiny toe.

A Zimbabwean man, who went viral after a video of him stating that he is a dealer for toe buyers, has now disclaimed the story.

After being mocked and ridiculed by his colleagues, he has now set the records straight. 

David Kaseke, also known as Zhula, said he had drunk too much when an ‘Hmetro’ journalist approached him for a story.

He said he saw it as an opportunity for him to trend, and he started vomiting out lies about the toe trade. 

“I never thought the video was going to be published on social media. I guess I had too much to drink, and it never crossed my mind that journalists are always serious with their work,” he said. 

He added that after their video went viral, he had a torrid time apologising to his colleagues for letting them down through his lies.
