Create A 'Government Relief Fund' To Cater For COVID-19 Patients - Chamisa

MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa has urged the government to provide monetary support to individuals and families affected by the coronavirus.

Speaking in a live broadcast on Wednesday, Chamisa said the funds should be sourced from the surplus that has been declared by Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube from government’s 2% tax. He said:

Those who are tested and confirmed positive must get a form of financial support for a month while they fight and the deceased family a government relief fund for their beneficiaries.

Bereaved families need a Government Relief Fund for the beneficiaries so that we are able to create a social safety net.

Cushioning citizens from economic distress and speed up the roll-out of humanitarian support is vital. We must put in place social protection nets.

Chamisa added that the government should ensure that the assistance is availed to people irrespective of political affiliation.

The MDC Alliance leader’s statement came at a time when Zimbabwe has recorded 23 coronavirus cases, with millions facing hunger that has been exacerbated by the 21-day lockdown.
