“The Money ED Used To Fly To Namibia Could Have Been Used To Fight Coronavirus.” Chamisa’s Spokesperson

Dr Nkululeko Sibanda the spokesperson of Nelson Chamisa the leader of the opposition MDC has said that the government must be held accountable over the money that was used for President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s trip to Namibia.

President Mnangagwa travelled to Namibia for the inauguration of Namibia President, Hage Geingob on Saturday, 21 March 2020. Sibanda said:

It is really saddening that he travelled to Namibia when the country is facing such a terrible national crisis. There is virtually no equipment in hospitals designated to handle the COVID-19 pandemic…less than 100 beds in the country… about 30 or so in Harare, and a slightly lower number in Bulawayo.

… The money that they used to fly out to Namibia for something that is non-essential could have been put to better use.


Sibanda added that Mnangagwa should not have gone there and the people of Namibia could have understood the situation.

Although authorities are claiming that the country is equipped to face coronavirus, results on the ground suggest otherwise.

The family of Zororo Mkamba claims that Wilkins hospital, an institution designated for infectious diseases, has no water adding that Zororo died because the hospital does not have an electrical plug to insert a ventilator the family had brought in an attempt to save the life of the 30-year-old journalist.
