By A Correspondent| Samantha Murozoki, the Chitungwiza lady who has been assisting the vulnerable with food since the beginning of COVID-19 induced lockdown last year has tested positive to the deadly virus.
Through her Kuchengetana Trust, Murozoki has consistently dished two meals to hundreds of Chitungwiza children everyday for over 10 months in a project that has attracted support from local and international corporates and well-wishers.
Posting on Twitter, Murozoki said she was diagnosed on 9 January but was quick to state that the volunteers at her soup kitchen and her kids are safe.
“I would like to take this time to advise you that I have been battling Covid 19. I was diagnosed on the 9th of January. I have been experiencing the harsh side of the pandemic the past few days. The volunteers, my mum and sister and my kids are safe,” said Murozoki.
Speaking on the symptoms of COVID-19, Murozoki said she is battling with breathing, headache, diarrhoea and headache as well as loss of appetite.
In her absence, the kitchen is being run by her mother and little sister.
“I am battling with breathing, headaches, diarrhoea, headaches and lack of appetite. In isolation till further tests are done on me. Kitchen is being run by mum and little sister who are pictured in our updates of late,” added Murozoki.
Zimbabwe has recorded over 20 000 cases with over 500 deaths so far.
