President donates 50 000 masks to apostolic sect
President Mnangagwa yesterday donated a consignment of 50 000 face masks to members of the Johane Masowe weChishanu Apostolic sect in Bulawayo as part of the fight against Covid-19.
The donation was handed over by Industry and Commerce Deputy Minister Raj Modi during an event to mobilise support for Zanu PF in a build up to the 2023 harmonised elections.
The ruling party is angling to garner over five million votes and resoundingly win in the next harmonised elections, with each province expected to contribute an equal number of votes to attain that figure.
Deputy Minister Modi, also Bulawayo South MP, said the gesture by the President will go a long way in fighting the deadly pandemic, which has claimed more than 1 600 lives in Zimbabwe and infected nearly 40 000.
“Our President is a listening leader who is committed to the wellbeing of citizens, particularly during the era of Covid-19,” he said.
“This donation will help fight the pandemic and it is important for all stakeholders to emulate the President and play a role in the fight against the coronavirus.”
