Zimbabwe Peace Trust Logo

December 22nd 2015

The National Peace Trust joins Zimbabweans in celebrating the Unity forged between the two liberation parties whose Patriotic Front united to bring us our precious independence.

Unity day 2015 remains particularly pertinent to all Zimbabweans. However, most Zimbabweans at home and abroad now yearn for unity of purpose in 2015 as they once did over the post independence years when political unity seemed to elude us.

Political turmoil around MDC amid mounting COVID-19 epidemic in Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe’s COVID-19 lockdown has been extended for two weeks until May 3. At the time of writing there are 28 confirmed cases, and four deaths, due to the virus. But given the acute shortage of testing, the inability of large numbers of Zimbabweans to physically isolate and to practice hygiene rules, the hunger that will be pervasive during the lockdown, and the lack of personal protective equipment for health workers and lack of ventilators and other hospital facilities, the impact from the virus is bound to greatly increase.
