ISLAMABAD: Jemima Khan, former prime minister Imran Khan’s ex-wife, has rejected the allegation of financing vloggers to build support for her husband and his party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
The claims were made by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari during an interview with a private news channel a day earlier.
Responding to a post on X, formerly Twitter, the British socialite, said: “This is obviously not true.”
Jemima added that she will only ever wish for “peace & prosperity in Pakistan”.
In his interview responding to a question about the PTI returning to the parliament with a two-thirds majority, former president Zardari said: “Please fear God! This is what vloggers settled abroad are saying. Jemima is giving money to these bloggers.”
He went on to add that there is a lobby supporting and financing them. This lobby, he said, had different intentions.
The former president stated that a lobby with “multiple interests” has been funding and backing vloggers.
The former president further added that it was a conspiracy to bring Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) ex-Chairman Imran Khan into power, adding that some people wanted to extend his rule until 2035.
Zardari added that the former PTI chairman was not supportive of parliamentary democracy and wanted presidential democracy.
“He was running a cult democracy,” the PPP co-chairman said.
On the other hand, PTI supporters are showing support to Jemima on X (previously Twitter), with #StayStrongJemimaKhan trending on the platform.
