A local organization says Covid19 induced economic constrains have resulted in some residents engaging in illegal activities like drug dealing which is negatively affecting the social fabric of young people. In an interview with Men’s forum provincial coordinator Webster Muzulu said the social ills have resulted in several young men become addicts and has called for a quick recourse to the scourge. Meanwhile president Emmerson Mnangagwa recently instructed law enforcement agents to bring drug kingpins, peddlers and gun-toting robbers to book, especially at a time the country is grappling with a surge in consumption of illicit drugs.
