Zimbabwean Minister, who celebrated COVID-19 as God’s punishment on the West now suffering the virus.
Kashiri, in March 2020, had gleefully proclaimed that the disease was God’s divine retribution against western countries for imposing economic sanctions on Zimbabwe. United States President Donald Trump was singled out in the Minister’s bizarre tirade. When the Minister made the startling claims, the disease was yet to hit Zimbabwe.
She said at that time;
“Coronavirus is the work of God punishing countries that imposed sanctions on us. They are now keeping indoors. Their economies are screaming just like they did to ours. Trump should know that he is not God.”
The Zim Morning Post reported that Muchinguri-Kashiri contracted the disease and is now undergoing treatment in the capital.
The publication reports that other senior government officials who are currently battling Covid-19 include Manicaland Provincial Affairs Minister Ellen Gwaradzimba and former Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPCS) boss, retired Major-General Paradzai Zimondi.
Zimbabwe has since recorded 17,194 Covid-19 cases and 418 deaths. The government has also imposed a 30-day national lockdown following a spike in COVID-19 cases, termed the “Second Wave.” Here
