Press Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Honourable in Response to the Recording Attributed to the Minister of Defence and War Veterans Affairs, Honourable O.P.Z. MuchinguriKashiri Blaming the Chinese for Covid-19

Reference is made to a purported telephone conversation between the Minister of Defence and War Veterans Affairs, Honourable Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri and a journalist, Simba Chikanza that is circulating on the social media platforms.

We wish to make it clear that the sentiments expressed do not reflect the position of the Government of Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe and China enjoy excellent relations.

The Government does not hold the Chinese Government responsible for the emergence and spread of the coronavirus that has affected every global citizen. Government appreciates that China has exercised global leadership in efforts to find both the cause and a solution to the pandemic.

Constance Chemwayi (Mrs)
Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

    This shows the quality of cabinet ministers that we have in ED’s government. A minister of the country’s defence who is so reckless not to check who she is talking to on the phone and goes on to spill secrets to someone she does not know. Are we safe in the hands of this government, I don’t think so!!!!!
