A SAKUNDA Holdings chartered Air Zimbabwe plane landed at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport on Monday with Covid-19 cargo worth US$3 million.
The consignment includes personal protective equipment (PPEs), auto spraying machines, ultra-sound scanners, ventilators, and rapid tests kits.
This was revealed by the Zanu PF Youth League on its Twitter handle.
Sakunda Holdings recently partnered government to spearhead COVID-19 response initiatives in the country.
The company headed by Kuda Tagwirei has since renovated St Annes Hospital and the Rock Foundation Hospital, both private medical facilities in Harare.
“A @FlyAirZimbabwe chartered plane by Sakunda Holdings to ferry cargo just landed carrying 30 tons, with part of donations to the national COVID-19 response team,” the ruling party’s youth league wrote on Twitter.
“The cargo is worth US$3 million and includes PPEs, auto spraying machines, ultrasound scanners, ventilators and rapid test kits.
“Sakunda Holding also freely gave space to Friends of China to ferry their donations to the people of Zimbabwe. A part of the cargo will be used at the Sakunda owned Arundel Clinic formerly Rock Foundation.”
The Air Zimbabwe plane was spotted at PEK International Airport in China a few days ago loading cargo.
