MISA Zimbabwe by virtue of this notification has with immediate effect downscaled its operations to reduce the possible spreading of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) among its staff and other stakeholders.

MISA Zimbabwe by virtue of this notification has with immediate effect downscaled its operations to reduce the possible spreading of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) among its staff and other stakeholders.

MISA Zimbabwe will maintain a skeletal staff that will be on duty on alternate days of the week to ensure no more than one person occupies any of its offices at any given time.

In that regard, interpersonal and public meetings with stakeholders have been suspended with immediate effect until further notice.

Where interpersonal meetings (of strictly no more than five people), are inevitable and/or unavoidable, we will ensure the necessary precautions and preventive measures will be taken in adherence with the COVID-19 social distancing measures.

We, therefore, encourage our valued members, partners and stakeholders, to make use of our digital platforms as we continue to advance the mandate of MISA Zimbabwe pending improvement of the situation currently at hand.

You can also contact us through our Email: misa@misazim.co.zw. Cell: +263 712 603 439/602 448. Hotline: +263 784 437 338.

We look forward to your continued support and co-operation as we join the rest of the world in combating the Coronavirus pandemic.

National Chairperson
