The government of Zimbabwe has extended the lock down for two weeks amid fears of the spread of the deadly Coronavirus pandemic.
The lock down extension came as bombshell to football lovers in Zimbabwe, as the resumption of football remains uncertain.
The local championship in Zimbabwe was halted in March last, when the authorities lock the country to combat the spread of the deadly virus. Though the football stakeholders in the country made efforts to call on the government to resume football, the government place a deaf ear to their call.
Consequently, the move by the Emmerson Muangagwa led administration has further put the resumption of the local championship in suspense.
According to soccer24.co.zw, the league in Zimbabwe runs on a calendar year basis and runs from March to December but without a clear roadmap for the resumption of the championship, the extension of lock down remains a big blow to their local league.
The lack of football in Zimbabwe was a reflection of their poor performance in the just ended CHAN, where they failed to harvest a point in their three group games in the competition.
