We Are Trying To Adhere To Lockdown Restrictions - Rural Folks To The Chronicle

People in the rural areas visited by The Chronicle explained to the publication that they were trying to adhere to the lockdown restrictions imposed by the president on 27 March 2020 despite the challenges they were facing in trying to do so.

Speaking to the publication, villagers from Bubi In Matebeleland North said:

I am one person who loves spending the better part of the day drinking beer with friends at the local business centre, but since the President announced a lockdown because of coronavirus, I now spend the day at home. I only go to the shops to buy my beer and immediately return and drink it in the comfort of my home because of this lockdown – Nkosana Mkhwebu

We come here at the borehole to fetch water and usually when there are long queues, some people have a tendency of wanting to force their way resulting in commotion and that is why it is difficult to maintain social distancing in such places – David Manyathela.

We are used to this way of greeting each other and since time immemorial this has been part of our African culture, so it is rude to ignore someone when they stretch their hand whenever exchanging greetings – Ms Minenhle Moyo

The lockdown was imposed as a measure to curb COVID-19 which has so far killed 3 people since the first case was recorded on 21 March 2020.
