All journalists who had been in contact with the late Zimbabwe Union of Journalists (ZUJ) secretary-general, Foster Dongozi, two weeks before his death are supposed to undergo testing for the novel coronavirus.
This also applies to all people who attended the recently held media workshop on the National Development Strategy in Gweru.
Permanent Secretary for Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Nick Mangwana outlined the modalities for the testing. He posted on Twitter on Saturday:
Harare based Media and Government Officials who attended the Gweru Workshop from 13-18 December 2020, please attend Covid-19 testing at the Fire Brigade at 11 am tomorrow (today).
Those from Matabeleland North, Matabeleland South, Bulawayo and Midlands you will be contacted and get tested at home.
Dongozi was buried at his rural home in Sanyati yesterday, with mourners describing him as a unique figure in the media fraternity.
