ZANU PF secretary for administration, Obert Mpofu has self-quarantined following his trip to Tanzania. Mpofu told CITE that he will only get out of quarantine after retesting for the virus after eight days of isolation.
The health ministry directed that individuals coming from countries hard hit by the virus need to be quarantined for at least 8 days.
Speaking to CITE, Mpofu claimed that he was rigorously tested on his way to and from Tanzania. He said:
I am in quarantine as we speak. I recently came back from Tanzania and will be in quarantine until the eighth day (for the second round of tests).
After the rigorous screening I am now actually waiting for Day Eight, after which I will be re tested.
Covid-19 is unfriendly to us senior people, that is why I have to be careful.
This comes when the number of confirmed cases in the country is rapidly rising, a development that forced the government to review lockdown regulations.
Social gatherings have been banned again while tertiary institutions that had been allowed to reopen have now been ordered to close again.
