“l am providing fuel so that we transport grain in my constituency to various people. This week we have already distributed grain in Gudyanga area and ward 8 in my constituency, respectively,” she said yesterday.
“In some situations, we are making door-to-door deliveries of food which is coming from the Social Welfare Department but in some situations we are delivering the food aid at a central point whereby we will be monitoring social distancing,” she said.
“I don’t want our people to die of hunger and as MPs; we should be seen playing a role. We are doing the distribution fairly despite the political affiliation,” she said.
“Although we are encouraging self-isolation, we are doing awareness campaigns on the oronavirus in the constituency. My councillors have approached traditional leaders who then dispatch information to their subjects on how to prevent contracting the virus.
