Local Government Minister Prohibits Mayors And Council Personnel From Announcing COVID-19 Cases

The Local Government Minister July Moyo has sent his ministry’s permanent secretary Zvinechimwe Churu to gag all mayors and council personnel who are in charge of council hospitals which are being used as isolation centres for COVID-19 from announcing any COVID-19 cases, ZimLive reports.

Moyo reportedly instructed Churu to sent a message to all mayors in this message:

Please send message to all mayors, chairmen, town clerks and secretaries that announcements are made by the minister of health only or authorised by HE (President Emmerson Mnangagwa). State of disaster requires that discipline. Please advise them immediately

This comes after the Harare Mayor announced that Harare has recorded 2 cases of COVID-19 which the health ministry disputed and said it was just one case.

  1. How utterly irresponsible! The quicker people are informed the better, including which area the infected is from so that disinfecting can be carried out!

  2. With so many chinese nationals flocking to zimbabwe, the country has already countless cases that the government is hiding and they will keep doing so because the healthy system of the country is in shambles. I can’t believe the only testing site has only 30 beds, well i guess for politician families only and the rest will die a terrible death.
