Zimbabwe’s diplomatic mission in SA resumes consular services

Zimbabwe’s diplomatic mission in South Africa has resumed offering consular services after the South African government recently relaxed some of its lockdown measures against Covid-19.

“Zimbabwean diplomatic mission in that country has introduced a gradual resumption of consular services to facilitate the repatriation of those in need of returning home,” Monica Mutsvangwa, Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, told a post-cabinet media briefing on Tuesday.

South Africa’s Covid-19 alert level 2 has been in place since August 18, which relaxes some restrictions, allowing long-distance travels, conditional social gatherings, and business operation with measures minimising the number of employees at the workplace at any given time, Xinhua news agency reported.
