Coronavirus is the work of God punishing the US and Europe – Zimbabwe’s defence minister, Oppah Muchinguri

Speaking at a rally in the northern town of Chinhoyi over the weekend, Muchinguri described the virus as a “punishment” to the US and Europe for imposing sanctions on Zimbabwe since the early 2000s over alleged human rights abuses.
