Many people were wondering about the fate of pupils concerning the opening of schools which have not been opened this year, except for exam pupils.

On the 2nd of January 2021, the Vice President who is also the Minister of Health and Child Care, Constantino Chiwenga announced a level 4 lockdown which saw the suspension of many activities including opening of schools in the country.

The initial lockdown which was further reviewed by two weeks is due to end on the 15th of of February which has raised questions among citizens concerning the opening of schools.

However, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Services, Nicky Mangwana brought the issue to twitter to clear those mixed feelings.

Many are asking about the Opening of Schools. In its First Meeting of 2021, Cabinet resolved that schools remain closed for another 2 weeks. This position will be reviewed at the end of the 2 weeks,” wrote Mangwana on his twitter handle.

Meanwhile, President Mnangagwa is next week expected to announce new lockdown measures, an anouncement he made today at the first Political Actors Dialogue executive meeting at State House in Harare this morning.

In the coming week, I will be announcing how we are proceeding with regards to the lockdown.

This will be informed by scientific data and recommendations from our health experts,” he said.
