‘Over 5 000 Kadoma Households Starving Behind Locked Doors’

More than 5 000 households are starving behind locked doors in the city of Kadoma, Mashonaland West Province since the 21-day national lockdown was imposed.

Kadoma Central MP Muchineripi Chinyanganya told NewZimbabwe.com over the weekend that most the city’s residents work in the informal sector following the collapse of the manufacturing industry. He said:

The majority of people in Kadoma live from hand to mouth through the informal sector due to a collapsed economy and industry.

The fact that people have been ordered to stay under lockdown for 21 days means their sources of income have been cut off and consequently they will not be able to put food on their tables.

The government recently relaxed lockdown restrictions to allow farmers to sell fresh produce to make food readily available across the country.

However, other activities that are deemed non-essential for the nation at large remain banned as the country tries to control the spread fo the novel coronavirus.
