President Emmerson Mnangagwa has moved to reopen the country’s informal market after over two months of closure as part of his government’s attempts to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Mnangagwa said all those in the informal sector, who have not formally registered themselves or their enterprises, are directed to do so forthwith. Once they can prove that such registration has been made, he said, they can resume their operations.
Upon resuming their work, they are compelled to adhere to the laid down Covid-19 prevention requirements, such as the wearing of masks, washing or sanitization of hands and social distancing.
Mnangagwa said gathering for purposes of worship must remain at a maximum of fifty and in full compliance with all the Covid-19 prevention measures. Among some of the new conditions, Zimbabweans can now travel when it is absolutely necessary.
Mnangagwa also said the moratorium on rent payment, made during the early phases of the lockdown is now lifted. He said rent arrears can be settled in installments spread over a period of six months.
