POLICE say the ban on public gatherings announced last week applies to churches as well.
In an interview, Police deputy spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi urged churches to approach local health workers and police before any gatherings so as to arrest the spread of cholera.
“Police has since banned any gathering in Harare and this also applies to churches and we are urging church leaders to approach local health workers and police for any gathering.”
Ass-Comm Nyathi said they will be on the lookout for gatherings where there are no adequate ablution facilities.
“Police will descend heavily on churches who gather at places where there are no toilets and we discourage more gatherings at places where a number of toilets cannot contain the number of people gathered,” he said referring further questions on musical show gatherings to City of Harare.
