Members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police refused to accept a donation of protective gloves from Marondera  Central Member of Parliament Caston Matewu.

Matewu had intended to give the donation to the police so that they may use them as they engage in the law and order enforcement during the 21 days lockdown period that Zimbabwe is currently under.

Said Matewu, "I tried to donate protective gloves to Police in Marondera but was tossed from one office to another. It was clear politics was at play so I ended up giving them to Municipal workers. In times like these Unity is key."

Video footage and still images that have flooded the internet have shown that police office do not wear protective clothing when conducting work thereby making them vulnerable to the deadly Coronavirus.

Zimbabwe recorded its third death on Wednesday evening.
