Residents of  Bulawayo and Harare complied with the mandatory 21 days Lockdown decreed by the President on Friday.

Pictures from Harare CBD show that all shops are closed and there is minimum road traffic.

In Bulawayo, there are currently a few individuals seen moving around the CBD.

Presidential Spokesperson George Charamba said the lockdown period was subject to review by the President.

"The President has already hinted the 21-day lockdown is subject to review depending on how matters pan out. It is critical than LOCKDOWN does not become SHUTDOWN of our fragile, slowly recovering Economy. Govt has not interfered with the running of productive enterprises, leaving entrepreneurs to decide how best to comply with set guidelines while keeping wheels of industry and commerce turning." Charamba said.
