  1. People should be provided with these face masks our government should do this or give a contract to sewing companies to make these things ..pliz dont make people to suffer

    1. The country is still under lockdown down. If you don’t have the mask stay at home. Simple

  2. If you arrest them did you supply the poor people with musk,its sad how your government think of arrest every time not thinking of the suffering.Have heart.

    1. Crazy indeed, does this government ever take time to think and consider the realities of their I’ll advised laws. You gazzette your law on Saturday, it becomes effective on Sunday, and its to be implemented on Monday by the police force. So where are the people going to get the masks in this lockdown. Do they have backdoor mask industries. So inconsiderate and irrational thinking.

  3. what about .those who are selling motors .we are part of formal sector ..because we are paying taxi ..but we not allowed to operate?

  4. what about those who are selling motor spares.we are part of formal sector because we are paying taxi but we not allowed to operate?

  5. Following instructions is important regardless of comfort zone. No Mask,stay home. No system I perfect , if you are stubborn go to jail. Make a mask at home like others.

  6. May the the Lord interven in this situation of face masks that we have faithful Donner to help our nation.

  7. Does all people include zanu Ching Chong junta government-army and police by any chance. , I thought not !
