Exemption Letters: Government Clears Air
The government has said that exemption letters would only work after the stipulated curfew times.
The clarification was made by the government spokesperson, Nick Mangwana on Thursday to the state media.
Enforcement of the 3.30 pm deadline for close of most business and the 6.30 pm curfew was being improved by requiring those who needed to remain open later and those who had to be out and about after curfew needed to be able to show they were exempt.
“The position is that all businesses will be allowed to operate but should do so within the stipulated time which is 3.30 pm. The expectation is that between 3.30 pm and 6.30 pm people should be going home ahead of a curfew set at 6.30 pm. After 3.30 pm, only essential services as spelt out by the law are allowed to open,” said Mr Mangwana.
He reminded businesses and others that they were expected to reduce their workforces on business premises by riding on technological platforms so people could work from home and meetings should be held virtually where possible.
