Zimbabwean Government yesterday agreed to open night clubs until 10 in a move to curb unemployment and corruption.
In a Cabinet brief, Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said “Cabinet notes, with concern, that the continued closure of licensed bars and night clubs has caused not only a loss of income and unemployment but also resulted in the mushrooming of illegal outlets.
Cabinet therefore directed that all licensed bars be opened to fully vaccinated clients.
Bar owners are also required to ensure that the World Health Organisation and national protocols and guidelines are enforced, failure of which their licences will be withdrawn.
The bars are also required to adhere to curfew hours.”
The Government urged the public to be responsible since another wave of COVID19 is still imminent.
“The nation is advised that in view of a potential fourth wave and the general complacency being experienced in most communities following the relaxation from Level 4 to Level 2 lockdown, implementation and enforcement of all Public Health and Social Measures will continue to be strengthened with a focus on vaccine rollout and awareness campaigns at public places and gatherings.” said Mutsvangwa.
