ZIMBABWE – The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has issued a stern warning to citizens advising them to stay home and adhere to the newly announced lockdown measures announced by the government.
On Saturday, Vice President and Health Minister Constantino Chiwenga announced a fresh lockdown order which will run for the next thirty days following a surge in the number of Covid-19 cases in the past few weeks.
“In view of the revised Covid-19 regulations announced by Government on 2 January 2021 and the subsequent publication of Statutory Instrument 10/21, the Zimbabwe Republic Police reiterates that only employees in the essential services sector such as health, food distribution, bank institutions, mining services, communications and telecommunications, agricultural production will be allowed to pass through checkpoints and roadblocks.
“The public is therefore implored to take heed of the Government’s Covid-19 national lockdown Level Four measures and restrictions and stay home except movement to accept food and medicines. Police will effect arrests on anyone who will be found in public places such as supermarkets, banks, pickup points and others without wearing or improperly putting on masks and not practising social distancing,” said Police spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi.
