By A Correspondent- Exiled former Cabinet Minister, Professor Jonathan Moy has recommended the cancellation of Zimbabwe’s Independence bash that is scheduled for the 18th of April at Barbourfields in Bulawayo.
Moyo cites the novel coronavirus as the reason why Zimbabwe should cancel the event.
Posting on Twitter this Saturday, Moyo said:
If it’s right for #CAF to postpone #Warriors Afcon games to prevent spread of #CoronaVirus & save lives, it must be right to cancel Zim@40 Uhuru bash at BF Stadium in Byo on 18 April to save lives.
His remarks come after the Confederation of African Football (CAF) had announced the postponement of the Women’s 2020 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers that were slated for the first week of April and the Men’s 2021 AFCON qualifiers that were scheduled to be played at the end of this month.
Moyo also speaks after the World Health Organisation country representative, Dr Gasasira has also recommended that gatherings are limited as much as possible urging those with symptoms to self-isolate and visit stipulated health facilities.
