Zimbabwe is in the process of acquiring Covid-19 vaccines to fight the global pandemic, which has left a trail of destruction across the country but can be conquered through unity, Acting President Chiwenga said.

Addressing mourners at the National Heroes Acre yesterday during the historic interment of three national heroes who succumbed to Covid-19 related illnesses last week; namely Dr Sibusiso Busi Moyo, Dr Joel Biggie Matiza and Commissioner General Paradzai Zimondi, Acting President Chiwenga said Zimbabwe will emerge victorious against the global pandemic.

“It is a ruthless juggernaut that leaves a trail of despair and desperation. But we will eventually conquer it and prevail as a people,” he said.

“Government is already in the process of acquiring the necessary vaccines for this pandemic. Let us continue to observe the laid down protocols as stipulated by the World Health Organisation and our national laws.

“I wish to reiterate the need to always mask up, sanitise and maintain social distance. These are key imperatives in this fight against the pandemic and have no substitute.”

The historic burial was held in line with World Health Organisation (WHO) Covid-19 regulations, with only few people in attendance — all the while observing social distancing and wearing face masks.
