Mangwana Dimisses Lockdown Reports

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Nick Mangwana has dismissed as a joke, a message purporting that he announced another lockdown.

Mangwana posted on Twitter saying:

If you see this message circulating on WhatsApp, please ignore. It’s someone’s poor idea of a joke. It’s not true.

He attached a photo of the alleged message which read:

Secretary for Information Nick Mangwana has announced that ordinary Zimbabweans will not be allowed to enter the Central business District with immediate effect.

Mangwana said in an effort to mitigate the spread of the deadly Coronavirus, only essential workers will be allowed to access the CBD.

“Yesterday, 133 positive cases were registered. There are some cases of deaths which are awaiting test results on whether Covid-19 was the cause. Security is being tightened to ensure only essential services can be allowed through to CBDs. We apologise for any inconveniences.” Mangwana said

 

This comes as coronavirus cases in the country have been going up recently triggering fears about the second wave of the virus.

Some stakeholders have spoken in support of reimposing the lockdown on the country following an increase in the number of new cases.

  1. People saying to impose a lockdown are uneducated, the death toll is less than 0.003% and that means the economy is more important. Who has to pay for people who can not work or earn a living? Stop being mislead and start thinking for yourselves and not like sheep.
