President Emmerson Mnangagwa's spokesperson has celebrated that the corona virus outbreak will prevent MDC-Alliance and he Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions from holding political demonstrations.

MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa is on record accusing the Zanu-PF government of blocking their planned demonstrations in 2019 and 2020 protesting what they say is Mnangagwa's mismanagement of the country's failing economy.

The police blocked the demonstrations on the basis that Chamisa's party wanted to overthrow Mnangagwa's government.

A day before Mnangagwa's government banned public gatherings of more than 100 people for the next two months as part of preventive measures against corona virus, Charamba posted on Twitter celebrating that the opposition will no longer be holding demonstrations. 

"CORONA VIRUS LOCKDOWN: No more political demonstrations/marches/protests!!! MDC-ZCTU muriko hereeeee!!!!!"

Peter Moyo said the demos were not about MDC and Zctu but about the people of Zimbabwe.

Charamba responded, "Which is why demonstrations for foreign interests must come under lockdown."

Stacey Fadzayi said it was stupid for Charamba to celebrate the corona virus outbreak. 

"Celebrating suppression of our humans right with the outbreak of such a medical pandemic that will bring catastrophic results to the whole. Is definitely beyond stupidity," she said.

Charamba was adamant, "What rights surpass that of being alive and thus human?? How come you look clever??? Nxa!!!"
