INDEPENDENT Norton MP Temba Mliswa has confronted the government’s COVID-19 national task force for failing to provide frontline staff fighting to curb the spread of the disease with basic provisions such as soap.
The MP said this was exposing medical staff to the risk of contracting the deadly COVID-19 disease.
In a video posted below, Mliswa is seen taking to task members of the national task force who include Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa and Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi.
“I think the frontline staff is compromised. How is it that the government is even failing to provide even soap for use by the frontline staff?” an emotional Mliswa asked.
Attempts by Mutsvangwa to force Mliswa to sit down failed as the irritated MP sought answers, but which the ministers failed to reply to.
Mliswa said he was forced to fork out from his personal account over US$2 000 as the government was not availing any resources to fund the COVID-19 preparedness.
The virus now has 14 confirmed cases in Zimbabwe including three deaths.
