Kwekwe Begins Two-week Lockdown

The government on Monday put into effect Kwekwe City’s intensified localised lockdown, with a heavy police presence in the central business district.

Service providers such as the power utility, ZESA, and the Zimbabwe United Passenger Company (ZUPCO), took measures to ensure social distancing in halls and buses respectively.

Shop owners were also in compliance with the lockdown directive, with most of them closing business for the day at 5 pm since Saturday.

Kwekwe District Development Coordinator, Fortune Mpungu, who is also the district COVID-19 taskforce chairperson, said they were happy with the level of compliance. Said Mupungu:

The majority of the residents have taken heed of the localised lockdown and we are happy with this level of compliance.

We had a very low human traffic in the CBD today with local companies and parastatals also moving in to cut the number of employees at work.

The government on Friday last week announced a localised two weeks lockdown for the Kwekwe district following a confirmed fatal case of a coronavirus variant, B.1.617.2 that was first identified in India.

Robson Kadenhe (76), has succumbed to the variant after being in contact with a niece who had travelled from India.
