MDC top official Tapiwa Mashakada has lamented that due to mealie meal shortage people in Masvingo were seen disregarding social distance to prevent COVID 19 by crowding at the shops jostling to buy subsidized mealie meal.

The shortage of the staple product has continued to rock the country.

"People queueing for mealie meal in Masvingo town disregarding social distancing to avoid the spread of Covid-19. Should gvt introduce lockdown? How will people survive since the economy is informalized?" Mashakada said.

"How about public buses and registrar general's office. If no immediate measures are introduced to lockdown Zimbabwe Covid 19 will spread like veld fire at a time when our healthcare system is shambolic. Lord have mercy."
