By James Gwati- President Emmerson Mnangagwa has defied Covid-19 guidelines set by the World Health Organisation for the third time in one week.
Mnangagwa yesterday, gathered his party supporters in the CBD when he was unvailing Mbuya Nehanda statue. His supporters did not observe social distancing.
Last Friday, he addressed a huge gathering at Chief Njelele’s homestead in Gokwe South, in the Midlands province, where some of the attendees were not wearing masks.
The next day, he attended the memorial service of the late Agriculture minister Perrance Shiri in Chikomba district, where he attracted a sizeable gathering.
Shiri succumbed to COVID-19 in July last year and was buried at the National Heroes’ Acre.
