FULL THREAD: “We Did Our Best.” Harare City Dismisses Makamba Family Claims

Harare City Council has refuted claims by the family of Zororo Makamba, Zimbabwe’s first officially acknowledged coronavirus death, that Wilkins Hospital contributed to the death of the 30-year-old journalist.

Makamba family had claimed, among other things, that there is no water and medication at Wilkins Hospital, Harare’s institution designated for infectious diseases.

We present below Harare City Council’s twitter thread which is a response to the claims and comments which are being made on social media over the matter.

Harare City Council challenges anyone with information on council officials at Wilkins Hospital who demanded money and equipment from the Makamba family. We state categorically that our staff never made any such demands and that they did all they could to save Zororo‘s life.

The Mayor, cllrs and management join the Makamba family in mourning Zororo. One life lost is too many. We, however, feel there are desktop commentators with no idea what the inside of Wilkins looks like who are commenting based on false information.

Ladies and gentlemen lets focus our energies on what we can do as a nation to manage the further spread of COVID -19. Name-calling and pouring out anger will just keep us in one place. Together we will perish if we do not proffer solutions.

Sockets are there. Remember there are round and square sockets. So if one brings a different type there is always that concern.

  1. Mayor this is a serious issue for you to just say sockets are there.You need to do a press conference and have a walk in the hospital with a technical team that inspects the facility inorder to stop the panic that has been spread as a result of the death of Zororo and subsequently comments by the deceased’s family we are a nation that has a challenge of infrastructure wise but if we can become open enough there will be always help .lets all harness our efforts together and leave politics aside prove that we are a nation that can separate issues and matters in the times of need.Zimbabweans are looking forward for the whole leadership of our country to work together.Please its an embarrassment what has been said by the Makamba family remember Mayor the information provided by Makamba family was detailed could it be a lie that they even conducted the Minister and the President
