Zimbabwe’s Minister of Defense Oppah Muchinguri has been blasted for saying that the novel Coronavirus pandemic is God’s way of punishing the Europeans and Americans for imposing sanctions on Zimbabwe.

Muchinguri made these remarks while addressing a ZANU PF rally in one of the country’s cities.

She went on to say that the economies of the Western countries will also collapse like the Zimbabwean economy.

‘They are now staying indoors’. She said. ‘Their economies will scream just like what they did to our economy.

‘Trump must know that he is not God.’ Said Muchinguri.

Zimbabweans on Twitter have condemned Muchinguri’s comments. Many suggested that they were ignorant, undiplomatic and irresponsible.

UNESCO has however cautioned that COVUD-19 will affect people from different countries and the virus must not be attached to any ethnicity or nationality.

The BBC reports that coronavirus has killed more than 6,500 people worldwide, and infected over 169,000, according to an estimate from Johns Hopkins University, which is tracking cases reported by the WHO and additional sources. Zimbabwe has however not recorded any cases of the virus.
