ZANU PF YOUTH LEAGUE APPLAUDS BOLD AND DECISIVE MITIGATORY AND PREVENTIVE MEASURES ANNOUNCED BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE PRESIDENT OF ZIMBABWE and COMRADE  E.D   MNANGAGWA IN PREVENTING COVID-1

 

We  would  like to take this  opportunity  to extend  our  gratitude and appreciation   to the  President of the  Republic of Zimbabwe, His Excellency  Comrade  Emmerson, D. Mnangagwa for  pronouncing bold measures  to mitigate and prevent the  Coronavirus  (COVID-19) pandemic  that has  become  a  globally  threat to humanity. On behalf of   the millions of young Zimbabweans at home  and  abroad, it is with great  honour  and  high degree  of   unpretentiousness  to boldly  express  our  heartfelt  appreciation for the  audacious  statements pronounced and measures  taken by His Excellency, the President of the Republic of  Zimbabwe    Comrade   E.D. Mnangagwa  to mitigate and  prevent  COVID-19 pandemic and infodemic.

 

Firstly, we express our gratitude to the government’s  well thought out  and  swift rejoinder to the COVID-19 pandemic  as  evidenced  by the  declaration of  COVID-19 as a the  National Disaster, the  speech  at the 338th    Ordinary Session of  ZANU PF Politburo where there was a pronouncement on restrictions on foreign travelling especially  outside Africa  to  minimise  the  risk of  and  restrictions  to minimise  the risk of being  exposed  to  and  importing COVID-19.

 

Furthermore, the  timely  address to the nation on 23  March, 2020  sets the tone  for the  expected behavioural change   and the need  for self-control  among all Zimbabweans as we  together in unison  should observe  and  abide  by  the all –encompassing   measures   and  bans  to mitigate and prevent   the  nasty  COVID-19 PANDEMIC. The address by His   Excellency the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe to the nation resonates and adds weight  to the  global mitigatory and  preventive  measures  against  COVID-19.

 

On The  26th March, 2020, His  Excellency   President Emmerson    Mnangagwa   officially  declared   that  starting from   30th of March  , Zimbabwe  would  undergo a   21  days lockdown  to mitigate and prevent  the complex  COVID-19  infection dynamics. Such grandiose series of public health interventions pronounced by the government should be  viewed as  necessary  measures  to  serve  and protect  the  beloved nation  of Zimbabwe from COVID-19.

 

We appreciate that historical lockdowns have been resorted  to mitigate and prevent  pandemics by  many  nations  and governments throughout the history  of  humankind  and Zimbabwe is no  exception. Fellow Zimbabweans, since this pandemic requires bold measures, the enactment of  Statutory instrument we are not only dealing with  a pandemic  but also an infodemic , the statutory   instruments (SI 77  of 2020)  should be  hailed as  key to ensuring  100% compliance  from  all citizens  of Zimbabwe . This global pandemic knows no political or religious inclination, color, race, sex, gender, class, status or any other social classification. It is high time  we  delink, debunk   and dispel  the  myths  that COVOD-19  does  not affect  blacks  or people  from the  tropics  because, its devastating effects  are  a  threat to human existence  irrespective  of   race or color, race, sex, class political  or religious orientation hence the need  for  vigilance.

 

While the   vulnerability to COVID-19 might trigger   alarm, fear, panic and dangerous   anxiety, let us in unison avoid blaming, cold shouldering and ostracizing those already   suffering from the disease and isolation.  The onus is  on us to heighten our sense of decorum and responsibility   and mobilize   our collective  conscience  and  mindfulness  of the  COVID-19 mitigatory and preventive  prescriptions and proscriptions  announced by  the government  of the  Republic of Zimbabwe. We would like to take the opportunity to applaud the law abiding people of Zimbabwe for their strict adherence to the lock down orders.

 

Despite these trying times, it  is  highly uplifting  and encouraging  that the  majority of the citizenry of Zimbabwe are  committed  to ensuring that COVID-19 will be  mitigated  and prevented  with  high  degree of  success.
