Former MDC legislator Norman Mpofu has urged government to be tough on beer drinker who continue to defy lock down order through visiting their private drinking spots posing risk to many people they associate with.

Through his Facebook wall Mpofu said on corona the military and the police have to be cruel to save Africa.

"That is the medicine African governments have. The greatest trespassers are not people going to look for food but beer and socialising. The problem if the govern does not act tough those defying lockdown will not die alone but will complicate things for all," he said.

Mpofu said he have no problem with the army dishing out tough love to the defiant citizens.

"There is no time to educate an ignorant person. Force under these circumstances is the only option. The governments must move fast and put structures in place to make sure starving families are assisted," he said.

"Lockdown is the only answer to covid 19."
