Exposed: Mnangagwa administration setting up secret COVID-19 Centre for themselves. President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s regime has been accused of setting up a secret covid-19 centre where the political and business elite will be able to get first-class treatment away from the masses. These stunning allegations have been made by MDC Vice President and former Finance Minister Tendai Biti.

Biti’s allegations come at a time when the rumour mill on Zimbabwe’s social media platforms has been in overdrive with reports that the ruling Zanu PF party and its top supporters have set up a state of the art Covid-19 private medical facility for themselves.

The rationale for the alleged setting up of the private facility is that the political elite who never use local medical facilities preferring to fly out even for routine check-ups have been left in a bind because of the coronavirus pandemic. The countries which the political elite favour for medical treatment have all closed their borders as they try to contain the scourge of the coronavirus.

Biti who has a knack for discovering some of the government’s closely held secrets alleged that the government has contracted controversial Harare physician, Dr Vivek Solanki, to set up the private medical facility. Dr Solanki was recently accused by the Makamba family of demanding U$$120 000 in order to set up an Intensive Care Unit at Wilkins Hospital to save their son Zororo when he was in respiratory distress. Dr Solanki allegedly informed the family that after making the payment, they would have to donate the equipment to Wilkins Hospital if Zororo later recovered. Unfortunately, Zororo succumbed to the coronavirus on Monday.

Writing on social media, Tendai Biti said,

It appears that the regime is setting up a private #COVID2019 facility for itself. The notorious Dr Solanki who demanded US$120 000 to set up a unit at #Wilkins appears to have been mandated to set this up. There is no limit, shame, remorse or elasticity to the evils of this regime.

According to Biti, Dr Solanki is currently on a recruitment drive and is promising doctors who join his private medical centre remuneration in United States Dollars. A leaked message shared by Biti reads,

Doctors willing to work front line on treating Covid cases, non ICU at a new facility from current, PPEs will be supplied and a daily USD payment by private business. Nee Doctors and Nurses. Please inbox if interested.

The same allegation was repeated by Dr Nkululeko Sibanda, the spokesperson for MDC Alliance President Nelson Chamisa. Said Dr Sibanda,

The private clinic for the elite will not stand. It will not stand. This government must unite the people in a common fight against COVID-19, the clinic will not be private, it will be public. We will all have access to the ventilators there, be rest assured Mr @edmnangagwa

Nkululeko SibandaAccording to the former mayor for Harare, Benard Manyenyeni, the Covid-19 private medical facility is located at Rock Foundation Medical Centre in Mt. Pleasant, which is owned by disgraced former Zanu PF legislator and convicted rapist Munyaradzi Kereke who is currently incarcerated at Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison.

Writing on social media, Manyenyeni said, “I have just been to the former Rock Foundation Medical facility. I am still in my pyjamas and gown. “I know the place well enough – it is in our municipal ward.

“They advised that they are not open – not operating. “What they told me is very different from today’s body language of the place itself – that I know well enough and can state confidently.

“There’s stuff happening there! The message of an exclusive medical facility for the politically-connected (or the elites) does not sit well with ordinary citizens of Zimbabwe especially at this point in time.

“That said, any life saved is a life saved and any new medical offering is a welcome addition to the unfolding crisis.”


According to pro-democracy and human rights activist group, Team Pachedu, the secret Covid-19 centre is located at 92 Norfolk Road, Mt Pleasant, Harare.

Zanu PF apologist Kudzai Mutisi, on the other hand, did not dispute the existence of the secret covid-19 facility. However, he claimed that the facility had been purchased by controversial businessman and Mnangagwa ally Kuda Tagwirei, for the benefit of all Zimbabweans. Said Mutisi on social media,

1. Good News for Zimbabwe

Zimbabwean Business tycoon Mr Kuda Tagwirei bought Rock Foundation Medical Centre in Mt Pleasant & is refurbishing it. The facility will be available for use by ALL COVID-19 patients requiring hospitalization. It has 36 beds with ventilators!

However, Mutisi’s claims were challenged by journalist Hopewell Chin’ono who dismissed the claims arguing that Mutisi was trying to do damage limitation. Said Chin’ono,

Don’t fall for this nonsense! We as citizens want public hospitals fixed, equipment installed, nurses and doctors paid a living wage and water and electricity available in Government Hospitals. This propaganda to deceive citizens will not wash, it is too late @kmutisi . Too late!
