Chitungwiza Town Council has agreed to reopen Samantha Murozoki’s soup kitchen after agreeing changes to make the facility legal.
The facility, where over 1500 vulnerable people where getting free food, had been closed by the Council on the grounds that it wasn’t legally registered and tresspassed health regulations.
The Town Spokesperson Mr Lovemore Meya has however revealed that following a meeting they had come to an agreement.
“We have offered her a creche to use and she has agreed to have her team tested for Covid19 and other diseases.
“Council has also offered her security personnel for assistance.
“In addition she obliged to do the registration while operating” he said.
The closure of the facility, which has lately been ascribed to a government directive drew much criticism on social media.
Various commentators said the move was insincere as it failed to humanely redress the situation.
Millions across the country are facing difficult times following the enactment of Covid19 lockdown level 2 which has stopped informal traders from operating.
Government has also failed to provide any social support with financial packages promised yet to be distributed.
