Another politburo member Simbarashe Mumbengegwi is in quarantine after he reportedly attended a conference in Tanzania, The Herald reports.
Mumbengegwi who is the ruling party’s Secretary for External Affairs joins Obert Mpofu who is also in quarantine after attending the same conference with Mumbengegwi.
The matter came to light during a politburo meeting in which President Mnangagwa said:
The party’s Secretary for Administration Dr Mpofu and his counterpart Cde Mumbengegwi could not make it to this Politburo meeting today (Wednesday) because they are in self-quarantine after they visited Tanzania recently
When contacted for comment, Mumbengegwi confirmed he was in quarantine and said he was reading to pass the time:
I am in self-quarantine at home here in Harare. I am just following the WHO guidelines. We don’t want to take chances. I am doing a lot of reading.
