“Operation Abasha Corona” As Army Express Concern Over Defiance National Lockdown
Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) has expressed concern over the citizenry’s defiance of the national lockdown which the government imposed to curb the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
In an endeavor to ensure that the lockdown is adhered to, ZNA and the Zimbabwe Republic Police this Wednesday jointly launched operation “Abasha corona” to sensitize the public on the need to comply with lockdown regulations.
The campaign saw security forces going to public spots such as market places where scores of people were not observing social distancing.
Lieutenant-Colonel Leonard Tsvangira spoke to the Chronicle in an interview after completing the campaign and said:
… only those who should leave their homes for essential services like medical attention or shopping, especially when you want to replenish your food items…. everyone is moving around and we are trying to conscientise them that they should stay at home… it seems, especially at places like the market place and shopping areas, those areas have become a challenge because the populace has a tendency of crowding.
Analysts say it is difficult to implement a lockdown in most of the developing economies since the majority of citizens do not have enough resources to sustain them for long.
