This follows the implementation of stricter lockdown restrictions by Vice President Constantino Chiwenga, Saturday.

In a statement the SRC said, “The Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) hereby notifies members of the public that pursuant to the statement by the Honourable Vice President of Zimbabwe, C.G.D.N.
