The invitation for staff members to get vaccinated along with their spouses came during the week and the turn out saw a reasonable size of spouses taking the jab alongside their partners.
Speaking at the ceremony, ZANU PF Secretary for Administration Cde Obert Mpofu said as a ruling Party, it is good to lead by example.
“We have to secure ourselves against the virus and this is the safest way to do so. As a ruling Party we need to show by example that this vaccine is safe.”
Speaking over the same issue, Secretary for Health Dr David Parirenyatwa noted that continued testing and observance of the guidelines is necessary.
“We are now ambassadors that this vaccine is safe and we must continue with the routine of testing and following the health guidelines of social distancing, washing of hands and wearing of masks.”
Several Politburo members among them Secretary for Information and Publicity Cde Simon Khaya Moyo, Secretary for Indigenisation Cde Mike Bimha, Secretary for War Veterans Cde Douglas Mahiya, Acting Deputy Secretary for Youths Cde Tendai Chirau among others took the jab at the ceremony held at the Party Headquarters.They had several messages to encourage the public to take the vaccine.
“I feel nothing at all after taking the vaccine. We must believe in the scientific world which has registered positive results and I would like to encourage war veterans like myself who are the most vulnerable to take the vaccine along with their families,” said Cde Mahiya.
Cde Chirau said “I feel no difference after taking the jab. We need to achieve herd immunity and this is through vaccination. It is either we prevent by vaccination or we perish.”

Cde Bimha said “this is the best way to prevent ourselves from the virus. If others before have taken it and not fallen ill it is enough evidence to allay any fears.”
Director in the War Veterans Department General Ezekiel Zabanyana noted that “the vaccination process was being done in a friendly and conducive environment and that there was an eagerness by the Politburo members and staff to get vaccinated.”
Several Party employees at the Party Headquarters who took the jab had different experiences. Some had slight headaches, felt dizziness while others felt nothing at all.
