AMG reportedly said it was going to spend up to R25 Million in food parcels which include flour, cooking oil and mealie meal, for the duration of the lockdown. Most Zimbabweans were left out of the food aid donations as they are illegal immigrants. The parcels were distributed through the Zimbabweans In South Africa Community which said they have received numerous calls alerting them of people starving in their homes due to the lockdown.
