The government of Zimbabwe has announced its plan to tighten the ongoing lock down as 2 more serving ministers just succumbed to the dreaded Coronavirus (COVID-19) with few days interval to each other’s death.

The Transport Minister, Joel Matiza, died on Friday which is about two days from the Foreign minister Sibusiso Moyo’s death. Unreliable report says that more ministers are I’ll at several decrees in unknown private hospitals across the country. Meanwhile, four ministers have died so far.


Reacting to the situation, the deputy health minister, John Mangwiro, told the press “We are in a dark cloud that we have to clear very soon.” Even though restaurants bars and others have been forced to close down, Mangwiro, said there are plans to tighten up the lock down which begun since January and to impose restriction on night movements.

He said, “We have seen people not adhering to the lockdown regulations announced early this month,” he added. The current situation of the covid-19 in Zimbabwe has put the country’s health system under serious pressure as 962 deaths have been recorded out of 30,523 cases of infection since the outbreak of the virus in the country.

Recall that the health workers in Zimbabwe had recently gone on strike over no better salary payment and lack of quality health facilities. A situation that many Zimbabweans have taken to the social media to blame it on President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the late Robert Mugabe, his predecessor.
