Mnangagwa to address nation on new Covid-19 lockdown measures
President Emmerson Mnangagwa

PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa will on Friday address the nation on the country’s Covid-19 lockdown situation.

Zimbabwe has been on lockdown for over two months with authorities taking a phased approach to reopening the economy.

Mnangagwa last month extended the country’s lockdown indefinitely and announced his administration shall review its lockdown measures every two weeks.

This Friday shall however be the third week since he announced plans to proceed by two-week reviews.

Mnangagwa Thursday called for a press briefing at State House to let the nation know about his plans for the general Covid-19 situation in the country but was forced to move it to this Friday.

Mnangagwa’s planned address to the nation comes after a rise in the number of Covid-19 cases since the last lockdown extension.

Current statistics shows the country now has 334 positives cases.
