Alone at the Shops

Lockdown Photo: A member of the Johane Masowe Apostolic sect walks past some deserted shops at Whitehouse, two kilometres west of Kuwadzana Extension suburb, Harare at 1842hrs on the 15th of April 2020. Normally at this time, the shopping centre would be teaming with imbibers, merrymakers, sex workers, late night foreign currency traders and travellers going to Riddle Ridge, Lake Chiwero, Granary and surrounding areas. Zimbabwe’s lockdown started on the 30th of March and is expected to end on 19 April 2020. There is uncertainty whether the lockdown shall be extended.
