President Mnangagwa, who has over the years has reinforced his standing as a listening leader has come to the rescue of musicians who have been reeling under lockdown restrictions, through allowing them to perform for limited crows.

This follows several distress calls from Zimbabwean musicians including Selmor Mutukudzi.

Deputy Minister of Youth, Sports, Arts and Culture Tinoda Machakaire took to Twitter to announce the reprieve after meeting President Mnangagwa at State House.

Honourable Machakaire was in the company of musicians Andy Muridzo and Chief Hwenje.

The message read, “Please join me in extending gratitude to H.E CDE E.D Mnangagwa who has given artists a greenlight to resume live shows on condition they do not exceed the stipulated 50 people. Let us not abuse this privilege and adhere to the regulations outlined by WHO & our COVID-19 taskforce.”

The decision means musicians can now legally perform for the first time, since the announcement of the first lockdown in March 2020.
