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.

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 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.
