Zimbabwe extends National Lockdown

President Emmerson Mnangagwa

It is with deep sadness that I today announced that the lockdown in Zimbabwe has been extended for two more weeks. I know that this will be painful for many Zimbabweans and this decision was not taken without great deliberation.

The President has extended the national lockdown by 2 more weeks. He announced his decision on Twitter and said: But there is a light at the end of this tunnel.

Thanks to vaccines arriving in Zimbabwe from China, the U.K., Russia and India, we will now be able to protect our people and gradually reopen our economy. I thank all Zimbabweans for the daily sacrifice they make in forgoing their liberty for the protection of us all.

In the same update president Mnangagwa also made the following announcements:

Businesses to operate from 8 am to 5 pm
Curfew to start from 8 pm to 5.30 am
No intercity travel
Schools to remain closed
30 Funerals attendees per funeral
Essential service to remain functional.
Govt function moves to 25%
Social gatherings remain prohibited
