1 Mins read

MEMBER of Parliament for Vungu Constituency in Lower Gweru, Cde Omega Sibanda has roped in local leaders for outreach programmes aimed at mitigating the spread of Covid-19.

Following a surge in Covid-19-related deaths in Lower Gweru last week, Cde Sibanda said it was time the community worked as a unit to fight the spread of the virus.

Cde Sibanda said he has engaged chiefs, headsmen, village heads, church pastors and bishops among other community leaders in his area to ramp up awareness campaigns amid reports the pandemic was wrecking havoc in the area with villagers continuing to ignore Covid-19 rules and regulations.

Last week five people in Lower Gweru died after they attended a funeral and conducted body viewing of a relative who had succumbed to the virus.
